Bringing The Sun Home. The pioneering women in renewable energy

Maura and Rosa, two illiterate women from a village with no electricity in El Salvador have arrived to India to attend a course to learn how to make solar panels at the Barefoot College. 

Since they don’t even speak English it seems impossible they will learn. Yet, Jeny and Paula, who have just returned from India to Peru have become solar engineers and they are traveling from village to village to bring the sun home.
