At Barefoot College, the learner is the teacher and the teacher is the learner. To keep this spirit alive, we offer learning journeys to small groups with specialized skills to contribute to the Barefoot College Campus Community. Our desire is to exchange skills with you. Please send a letter of inquiry and details of the skill you believe will be useful to our community. Learning Journey’s are limited to 5 people and extend for one to four weeks. Cost range from $10,000 – $30,000 USD depending on the nature of the visit.
Some of the learning journeys planned for 2013 include the following:
1) Accompany Bunker Roy and the Barefoot team in the field to be part of the entire grandmother selection process in rural villages for the Women Barefoot Solar Engineer candidacy. This 5 day trip will include all travel costs and will supply the chosen village with 40% of its solar electrification equipment. (2 locations/dates will be available)
2) Join the Barefoot trek through the Kanchenjunga region of Nepal to select women and villages that will be part of the solar electrification process. The trek will be minimum 2 weeks walking with basic camping and fresh local food.
3) Be part of the team to evaluate the impact the Bhutanese villages experienced from being solar electrified by Barefoot Solar Engineers since 2009. This trip will involve a trek with basic camping and delicious local food.
