Link: E4SI fellow!
Engineers for Social Impact E4SI is a unique fellowship opportunity for Indian youth from some of the most prestigious technical schools to spend their summers working in dynamic responsible businesses.
These include renewable energy companies, such as SELCO that provide sustainable energy solutions, to the rural homes and businesses.
My two personal favorites over the last couple of months:
* Husk Power Systems, which provides energy to thousands of homes in Bihar using micro power plants that makes use of discarded rice husk and has some big names backing it and;
* Sarvajal, which is a Piramal backed startup providing pure water at just 25p per litre to the BoP.
