A short piece from Women of Tilonia. A young physically challenged woman is interviewed about her work at the Barefoot College as a photostat operator and how she has overcome traditional expectations and constraints and raised her self-confidence.
The women come to India's Barefoot College from villages in Fiji, Peru, Rwanda, & beyond. They arrive largely unschooled & leave six months later as solar engineers, ready to electrify their worlds. Photo by Lana Slezic.
