The documentary Solar Mamas tells the story of Rafea - a 30-year-old Jordanian mother of four - who is traveling outside of her village for the first time to attend a solar engineering program at India's Barefoot College. She will join poor women like her from Guatemala, Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Colombia to learn concrete skills to change their communities.

Barefoot College was founded by Sanjit "Bunker" Roy to provide knowledge and training to the rural poor to empower them to make their communities self-reliant and sustainable.
