Manipur, June 14 -- In an attempt to ensure energy security to the people, especially women manual workers living in remote areas of the State, Chanura Microfin Manipur (CMM) today launched Clean Energy for Clean Environment Mission (CE2M) during a function held at Manipur Press Club.

The project CE2M was sponsored by Centre for Microfinance and Livelihood (CML), Mumbai supported by TATA Trusts under its "Ensuring Energy Security for Communities Living in Remote Areas in Manipur" project.

Speaking at the launch function, founder secretary and chief executive officer, CMM, PK Khuman said that the mission was launched with the objective of solving the inconveniences faced by the women who do manual work with the use of electricity.

Taking part in the launch function, program manager, CML, TATA Trust, Kamal Pathori said that CML sponsored the mission in the attempt of ensuring clean and affordable energy to all. Solar energy is the next big thing and is crucial in achieving the sustainable development goals, he added.
