Our Team

Team in India

Mlinda has a growing team of committed professionals based in Gumla, near the villages we work in. This field team will grow to 40 people by 2020. Engineers live in the villages for a limited length of time.

They install the grids, provide repair and maintenance functions, as well as connect new households to the grid. Most are qualified engineers others have diverse backgrounds. They come from different areas in Eastern India and show incredible dedication to the project and the people through their hard work. Some have also chosen to live in Gumla with their young families. They engage deeply with local communities to grow farm- based productive loads in villages. This leads to increase in local incomes and growth in village GDP.  A lot of local trust and goodwill is generated in this process
