This fall, Amplifier Strategies is thrilled to support one of our clients, Barefoot College, as they compete in the Social Entrepreneurs Challenge. We know they can win! We look forward to helping them create more "Barefoot Solutions" and train more rural village teachers, doctors, engineers, architects and artisans than ever before.
For 40 years, Barefoot College has been demystifying and decentralizing technologies, transferring their access, control and ownership to rural, mostly illiterate women and men. These “Barefoot solutions” have enabled thousands of people in hundreds of villages to become solar and water engineers, teachers, doctors and artisans.
