We would like to say a big thank you to Tom Williams, a Raleigh alumni, who has raised £700 for us to build bio-gas units in India by driving a Fiat Punto he bought for £45 through Europe. This 53% of his £1400 fundraising target.
Raleigh International has built 15 bio-gas units in the Nilgiri district in south India and has supplied sustainable energy to local communities, which reduces the impact of firewood consumption. Methane from cows is captured and stored for gas cooking, as a sustainable source. An additional by-product of bio-gas units is the milk produced by the cow which can be sold on and an income is produced.
