On October 21, 2015t, two of the Barefoot college trainers team reached Jordan all the way from India to catch up with our solar mamas, Um Gumar and Um Bader. Mr. Bhagwat Nandan the chief trainer and the networking officer Mr. Ravindra Nath met with the ladies at the training centre at Manshiyat Al Ghayyath.


This visit was held to check the women’s progress and latest updates. Mr. Bhagwat addressed all of the solar mamas questions and concerns, through training, he updated them on the latest solar technology to enhance the quality of the solar  lantern.

This meeting comes with high importance; the gentlemen left Jordan with a positive feedback. As representatives of the Barefoot College, they were happy with the provided infrastructure that the solar mamas have as work stations. They also were so happy with the new solar mamas trainees, actually  four women were brought in to the project and trained by our two main solar mamas: Um Gummar and Um Bader, which makes a total of 6 women benefited in the community of Manshiyat Al Ghayyath.


As to our Solar mamas, this visit has brought them some good memories, and left them with high spirits and bouts of energy to resume their work of passion.


Barefoot College….till next time!
