Focusing on enabling rural women is how we choose to achieve the UN's Sustainability Development Goals. What do you believe is the best way to achieve sustainability goals?
We set up balwadis (rural crèche) so that young children have a safe and engaging learning environment while their mothers work. Contributors, like Toybank who have given toys to 23 creches help us provide the social needs of 659 children. Supporters like that fuel us ([ Bit.ly Link ] so children who go to school will be healthier, happier and have access to more opportunities throughout life.
In addition to Solar workshops, new participants of Barefoot College Zanzibar reflected on their aspirations, were introduced to beekeeping and sewing, learnt digital skills on tablets, had health check-ups and played games to get to know each other. A truly Enriched curriculum! #BarefootEnriche

Maria Dusman Lopez is one of the 100 homes solar electrified in the village of P'al. Thanks to the solar lights she can see in the night, providing her the ability to cook, work, and see the faces of her family past sunset.
She lives with her husband Pedro Escobar Hijom and their three children.
Sebastan Vrito Terraza is an elected member of the P'al Village Solar Association. He helps manages the monthly contributions (Qs.15) made by each home with a solar system. These monthly contributions are saved to pay for maintenance, new parts and the salary of the Solar Mama.
With three other Barefoot College trained solar engineers, from the neighbouring villages of Santa Clara and San Marcos, 100 home solar systems were installed in fifteen days. Each system includes 3 LED home light fixtures, one lantern and 2 usb charging hubs.
