solar mamas

tonight (2012-11-28) on tvo at 9pm, the doc solar mamas asks, ‘Are women better at getting out of poverty than men?’….’The Barefoot College takes uneducated middle-aged women from poor communities and trains them to become solar engineers in order to create power and jobs in their communities. The college’s 6-month program brings together women from all over the world. Learning about electrical components and soldering without being able to read, write or understand English is the easy part.’
