Indian college teaches solar lessons to women
As world leaders debate solutions at the UN climate change conference in Durban, a college in the Indian state of Rajasthan is teaching communities how to harness solar energy. The barefoot college, as it is locally called, trains women from villages on how to test and assemble complex circuits, which they can then use to set up solar projects back home. The lives of women, many from some of the world’s poorest countries, have been transformed as they are now assembling solar panels which are then sold in the market for $250 each.
