One Village is an educational village model conceived to serve the rural population in India. It is a carbon neutral development that has the ability to produce its own energy, therefore eliminating the emissions of greenhouse gases while promoting self-sustainability.
The motivation behind this type of development is to provide innovative economic opportunities in rural India that were previously unavailable. Large urban centers are perceived to be the only avenue to prosperity, but many young people who flock to these areas in search of a better life are met with disappointment. What they encounter are slums, unemployment and poverty.
