    The public welfare project of “Green Power” of Enactus Group in our university aims at helping poor families in Inner Mongolian pastoral areaonly having two hours lighting electricity every day to get green, reliable and safe electricity for living and production. In the vast Inner Mongolian grassland, the herdsmen depended on kerosene lamp and burning cow dumps or sheep droppingsto heat and light in the past, which not only caused serious pollution to environment but also had enormous security hidden danger. 
    Besides, no electricity seriously affected the local education, medical treatment, and employment level. The wind-solar complementary generation system self-developedby Enactus Group of Our University solved some problems such as low power efficiency and short service life of the equipment caused by bad weather, which improved the income and living standard of local herdsmen.It was estimated that the amount of power available of daily usage increased to 6 KWH from 0.18 KWH, which increased 40-fold. The herdsmen could have access to not only some basic life electrical appliances such as electric lights, television, telephone,refrigerator, and so on, which improved their living qualities, but also some production equipment such as electric shearing machine, water pump, chaff cutter, and so on, which improved production efficiency, reduced labor intensity, more important, the survival rate of the lamb, saved the feed costs and helped herdsmen double their incomes.

The rigorous defense deepened judges and audience’s understanding of the project and made them re-comprehend the meaning of “Green Power” project.

My dream is to bring happiness and good future to Inner Mongolian people. I got a chance to meet the Enactus in my university, and I told them my dream. Finally, we decided to work together for this dream.After four years’ generous pay and three generations marching forward bravely fearlessness of hardship, now the apparently penniless people in the past are living abundant life, which demonstrated not only the changes of people’s life, but also the society recognition for our hard work.
