More than 1 billion people worldwide still don’t have electrical light in their homes. Barefoot College in Tilonia, India is developing a solution to this problem with a project started by activist Bunker Roy. Illiterate women from the villages of various third world nations like Peru, El Salvador are selected to attend a course on how to make solar panels in this college. They don’t speak English but they are determined to learn the technology that provides electricity. Those who have completed the course have returned to their villages and brought the sun home to more than 300,000 people.
