November 24, 2012 at 2:30 PM until 4:30 PM
Location: Carbondale Public Library, Carbondale, IL
WSIU and the Carbondale Public Library present "Solar Mamas," the next free film screening in their 2012-13 "Community Cinema" film series. At India’s Barefoot College, founded by Bunker Roy, impoverished rural women are provided with an education that empowers them to make their communities self-reliant and sustainable. In "Solar Mamas," we meet Rafea, a 30-year-old Jordanian mother of four, who is traveling outside of her village for the first time to attend Barefoot’s solar engineering program. Once there, she will join women from Guatemala, Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Colombia in learning concrete skills to change their communities.Return to event list.
