Non-profit organisations Agastya, Digital Green, and Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship & Democracy have been announced as the winners of the 'Google Impact Challenge'.  Social Awareness, Newer Alternatives (SANA) got the People’s Choice award.
Google awarded Rs.3 crore each to four winning projects that are using technology to tackle the world's toughest problems. Here's a little about the winning projects:

1. Agastya

The Bangalore-based NGO aims to ensure that the nation’s kids get access to fun and engaging science classes. These mini science labs travel around rural areas via motorbikes and conduct the world's largest hands-on science programme for financially underprivileged children.


2. Digital Green

Digital Green is an online knowledge forum and database of agricultural skills that aims to help farmers cut cost and improve productivity. With the money, this NGO aims to reach a million farmers in 10,000 villages across India.


3. Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship & Democracy

Janaagraha gives people online reporting tools that help them directly reach out to civic representatives. For example, someone could snap a picture of a dangerously crumbling wall or a massive pot-hole, and the idea is that the submitted report reaches the right agency who can fix the issue. The service aims to have 1.5 million users with help from Google’s funding.
 
4. Social Awareness, Newer Alternatives (SANA)

SANA combines solar-powered micro-ionizing water purification and biodigesting technology to improve water and sanitation infrastructure for rural villages. Basically, it’s a green-tech solution to cleaner drinking water where the waste by-products can be used to generate power.
