Working with the Barefoot College to improve the life of the rural poor by meeting basic needs for water, energy and economic opportunity.

Barefoot College believes that for any rural development activity to be successful and sustainable, it must be based in the village as well as managed and owned by those whom it serves.

Rural women and men irrespective of age, who are barely literate or not at all, and have no hope of getting even the lowest government job, are being trained to work as Barefoot teachers, doctors, midwives, dentists, health workers, balsevikas, solar engineers, solar cooker engineers, water drillers, hand pump mechanics, architects, artisans, designers, masons, communicators, water testers, phone operators, blacksmiths, carpenters, computer instructors, accountants and re-cycling professionals.

With a little guidance, encouragement and space to grow and exhibit their talent and abilities, people who have been considered ‘very ordinary’ and written off by society, are developing their own communities.
