Barefoot College- Women Solar Engineers

Source: You Tube/Barefoot College

Since its inception, the long term objective of the Barefoot College has been to work with marginalized, exploited and impoverished rural poor, living on less than $1 a day, and lift them over the poverty line with dignity and self-respect.

In relation to Business, this video clip shows how the Barefoot College promotes entrepreneurial skills in the women of Africa so that they can provide for themselves. The rural women of Africa become Solar Engineers which helps to provide their communities with electricity which otherwise would not be available to them. It gives them light and also allows them to cook food without going out to collect firewood. More info on other courses and skills that they teach African women can be found on Barefoot College website
