One area where this is desperately needed is access to electricity. In the age of the iPad, it’s easy to forget that roughly a quarter of the world’s population — about a billion and a half people still lack electricity. This isn’t just an inconvenience; it takes a severe toll on economic life, education and health. It’s estimated that two million people die prematurely each year as a result of pulmonary diseases caused by the indoor burning of fuels for cooking and light. Close to half are children who die of pneumonia.
In vast stretches of the developing world, after the sun sets, everything goes dark. In sub-Saharan Africa, about 70 per cent of the population lack electricity. However, no country has more citizens living without power than India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka etc. where more than 400 million people, the vast majority of them villagers, have no electricity at all. The places that remain most in darkness are rural areas’ villages, World’s poorest states, which has more than 80 million people, 85 per cent of whom live in households with no grid connection. Because rural areas has nowhere near the capacity to meet its current power demands, even those few with connections receive electricity sporadically and often at odd hours, like between 3:00 a.m and 6:00 a.m., when it is of little use.
Families living in rural areas of world’s developing countries facing huge shortage of Gas and Electricity even in some areas cannot find basic gas and electricity facilities. Dua Foundation World's local Charity has a aim to support those rural areas in developing countries by providing basic need of Gas and Electricity by providing them Solar Energy system.
"Trying to distribute power is going to be very difficult world’s rural areas, what do we do in the meantime where world’s developing countries villages are using kerosene and candles instead of we can put them (solar panels) into every household, moving them away from harmful kerosene.

About 70 per cent of the population lives in rural areas, and about 60 per cent are concentrated in the seven northern regions. The rural poor are typically undereducated, with limited access to health care, adequate sanitation and gas and electricity supplies. Food shortages are a major problem during years of drought, and nutritional intake is consistently poor.
The poorest households are those headed by women, which amount to about 43 per cent of all households in rural areas and are more likely to be dependent on subsistence agriculture. Rural women are traditionally disadvantaged. Their access to productive assets and employment opportunities is less secure. They have less control over earnings and property, and they bear a heavier burden of agricultural and domestic work.
Other disadvantaged households are those without alternative income sources, those with inadequate access to land and water, and those without livestock. All of these households lead extremely precarious lives, and are at risk of falling into severe poverty as a result of an unexpected event such as a family sickness or period of drought.
