Namaste Event for Intel Employees to Celebrate Indian Heritage

One Million Lights joined several India-focused nonprofits at the Santa Clara, CA campus in February 2010 to promote our programs for communities in India.

We were sponsored by the Santa Clara section of one of Intel Corporation’s Green Culture teams. Their goal is to promote green culture within Intel, in lives of Intel employees and at the same time, try to get engaged in various “green” related volunteer activities across the Intel community to make a difference.

They loved One Million Lights “Green” initiative “to improve the daily lives of needy children (and adults) in rural parts of the world” by using “clean, safe solar lighting, with a focus on education”. The focus to use innovative and eco-friendly technologies was the reason they contacted us.

They used the Namaste Event to show their support of our mission. Employees donated solar lights and signed up to volunteer.
