Truly inspirational. Please have a listen and be inspired.
From Radio National
Bunker Roy decided to give up his life of privilege and wealth to help some of India’s poorest communities.
His experience digging wells in rural villages gave him the idea to establish a training college to help communities use technology to become self-sufficient.
The Barefoot College has given thousands of rural men and women the skills and knowledge to make significant changes to their lives such as installing new methods of water collection or generating solar power.
