In Rajasthan an extraordinary school teaches rural women and men – many of them illiterate – to become solar engineers, artisans, dentists and doctors in their own villages. The initiative is called the Barefoot College and its founder, Bunker Roy, explains how it works. His dream was to build a college for the poor by the poor.
