Abstract

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) approach is an effective pedagogy method for providing learning experience to the user. The DIY approach also gives a sense of ownership (and empowerment) to the people as they assemble the product themselves. It also provides a vocational training platform for innovative ideas of people by extending the applicability and its realization. The design of ‘Roshini’, a DIY model for solar powered reliable lighting system aims at improving the adoption of improved sanitation practices, and sensitizing the community, through the youth, on good hygiene practices. Roshini also addresses the issue of lack of safe, well-lit sanitation access, lack of power supply for mobile phone charging and other basic daily needs which require electricity.The paper discusses the design approach towards the proposed development of ‘Roshini’ – A DIY based solar powered LED lighting system.
