Solar Digital NightSchool / Education Energy Technology

In India, many rural children are not able to attend school during the day due to family responsibilities such as farming, livestock breeding and household chores. It is for children from such underprivileged communities, that Barefoot College pioneered the Solar Night Schools. Children who are not enrolled in formal education between the ages of 6 and 14 gather at night to learn by the light of solar lanterns. The Solar Digital Night School evolved after 40 years of experience providing digital learning tools (Edu-box Solar projector, tablets & offline content repository) and a pro-girl rural STEAM learning approach.
