"I will be going back...as a solar engineer.”

“Because I am a farmer in my village, I am not expected to even hold a pen and write. I will be going back to my village as a solar engineer.” — Ako Esther, solar engineer from Cameroon

Ako is just one of many women who have gained education, skills, and financial independence with the help of our ally Barefoot College, which trains women from rural villages in the least-developed countries to become solar engineers and educators.
