Barefoot College has designed new ways to nurture and support a journey to empowerment, one village at a time, one woman at a time. They demystify and decentralise technology and put new tools in the hands of the rural poor with a singular objective of spreading self-sufficiency and sustainability. With a geographic focus on the Least Developed Countries, they train women worldwide as solar engineers, innovators and educators, who then return to their villages to bring light and learning to their community.
They operate in 1,300 villages in 80 countries worldwide. The impact of direct training and services ripples out to impact about two million people, giving communities access to clean water and safe, reliable energy. They have taken a humble, inspiring 40-year journey to learn and share the value of rural wisdom. This is the story of how Barefoot came to be.
They believes in the endless potential of the rural poor. Barefoot College forges a first-of-its-kind, women-centered, global network dedicated to sustainable development in every community where poverty exists.
