Women from across six countries come together to train as Solar Engineers and travel to India to be a part of the Barefoot College in Tilonia, Rajasthan – a pioneer in solar electrification in remote rural villages since 1989. Bound by similar circumstances of poverty at home and fighting all adversities, these women break all barriers to train as Barefoot Solar Engineers. Along with acquiring the necessary skills, their close interaction with the people of Tilonia helps build confidence and a new identity as part of the global community of Barefoot Solar Engineers who have brought solar electricity to over 450,000 rural people in 49 countries.
