In six months, Indian grandmothers learn to be solar engineers.
Then they return to their dark villages to install solar electricity. Everything changes: children can study, midwives can deliver babies, residents can walk safely at night; it becomes possible to use cell phones and refrigerators.
Today, those Indian grandmothers have returned to the Barefoot College, and are teaching grandmothers from all over the developing world to be solar engineers.
Without a common language, they teach with demonstrations, color-coding and gestures.
Indian grandmothers and African grandmothers tell about their lives and experiences in GRANDMOTHER POWER.
