Problem

Remote rural communities far from the "grid" have no source of power for cooking, lighting or heating other than firewood, kerosene or diesel. Solar power is the only clean and sustainable energy solution for these communities.

The Gift

Your gift will provide a rural household with a fixed solar lighting system, providing three hours of lighting nightly for five years. Barefoot solar engineers trained for 6 months by the Barefoot College are solar-electrifying every house in their villages in India, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Cameroon and Bhutan.
