From Economica:

Photojournalist Paola Gianturco visited the Barefoot College in Rajasthan, India. There, she met illiterate and semi-literate women from all over Africa who are being trained by Indian women to become solar engineers. After six months at the Barefoot College in Rajasthan, they will return home and bring electricity to their villages for the first time. Says Gianturco, "They will change life for the better, forever."  

From Economica:
