Problem

Close to 100,000 villages in India still use wood, kerosene and diesel for lighting, cooking and heating. The only sustainable solution for these communities where the sun shines most of the year is solar electrification.

The Gift

Your gift will provide a solar lantern for a rural house, which provides two hours of light every night for two years. Barefoot solar engineers trained by the Barefoot College fabricate and maintain solar lanterns used to provide light in their communities. Your contribution will provide materials and training for these solar engineers. Photo Credit: Barefoot Photographers of Tilonia
