Barefoot College Solar Engineers learn the skills of solar electrification, heating water for cooking, and filtering water through solar-powered desalination.
We believe that access to water is an inalienable human right. By implementing solutions such as rainwater harvesting, dams, solar powered reverse osmosis filters, and solar powered desalination plants, we help rural communities develop sustainable access to clean water.
We educate more than 7,000 children each year by focusing on poor, isolated communities and emphasizing a hands-on approach to learning. With a deep respect for traditional lifestyles, we educate rural children with lessons that pertain to their lives.
Driven by a culture of social justice, we value every person, regardless of gender, caste, ethnicity, age, or schooling. We believe that every individual has a role to play in the betterment of their community, and aim to empower all villagers to contribute to the development of their society.
Our vast network of donors, sponsors, and volunteers from around the globe serve as catalysts of positive change by speaking up against social inequalities such as caste discrimination, gender biases, and illiteracy.
