Signify Lights up over 60 tribal villages in Parvathipuram Manyam, Andhra Pradesh, transforming over 17,000 lives

17th, April 2024: Signify the global leader in lighting, has illuminated 61 tribal and marginal villages in Parvathipuram Manyam district, Andhra Pradesh, with installations of energy-efficient LED street lighting to enhance the safety of local citizens. The project was executed in partnership with a grassroots NGO, Jana Kalyana Samakhya, as part of Signify’s ‘Har Gaon Roshan’ CSR program, which prioritizes sustainable rural development and women’s safety across India. 

The project has significantly enhanced the safety and security of the local community, enabling regular meetings for residents to discuss their concerns. The illuminated streets have reduced the risk of human-wildlife conflict cases, increased time for economic & livelihood activities, enhanced women’s safety, and additionally encouraged children to do more outdoor activities. The initiative has brought about a favourable transformation for more than 16,500 villagers and over 3,900 households with over 700 high-quality energy-efficient outdoor streetlights. 

Commenting on the project, Nikhil Gupta, Head of Marketing, Strategy, Govt. Affairs & CSR- Signify, Greater India said, “Our CSR strategy and initiatives resonate with our brand purpose which is to unlock the extraordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world. We are strongly committed to our CSR initiatives and our vision for developing underprivileged diverse communities.
