Malawi Women Bring Solar Technology to Villages

This demonstrates how valuable women are in building our world.  In my head, I'm hearing, "Give a man a fish...feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish...feed him for a lifetime.

If you lived in a village that used parafin for lighting, what would it mean to you to suddenly the ability to generate light with solar technology? It would mean everything.

The Center for Community Organisation and Development (CCODE) chose 6 semi-literate Malawi women and trained them to become solar engineers in the Barefoot College of India. They learned the fundamentals of solar energy and how to build and install the new technology in their own villages.

Kudos to CCODE for their progressive thinking and kudos to these new women solar engineers. The world just got a little bit brighter.
