Barefoot College was approached by the EPA and FEMA, who were looking for organizations with a strong track record in providing access to sustainable energy. We put together a proposal to train 40 women in the region in order to rebuild and manage sustainable electrical power, provide disaster recovery protocols in rural communities, and work to develop sustainable livelihoods. We have identified ground partners, chosen the women to be trained in solar, tailored the training curriculum, and identified solar trainers. We have secured one grant and looking for additional support to fund the rest of the activities and cost of solar equipment
