Established in 1972, Barefoot College has been working for women’s empowerment.

As a result of its efforts, training has been provided to 15,000 women in solar engineering, mechanical repair and fabrication, solar cooker engineering and masonry. The educational programme targets the literate and the semi-literate, and its focus is particularly on women, who are more dedicated to remaining within their communities once they receive training, and to passing their knowledge and training on to their fellow community members.
