Solar Mamas is a documentary which follows the life of a Rafea, a woman trying to support her impoverished family. She is given the chance to attend Barefoot College, a school that trains illiterate women to be solar engineers in six months.
When she returns home, Rafea is faced with the difficulties of being a rare educated woman.
While tackling the problem of energy poverty, Barefoot College is also concerned with women empowerment and enabling people through education, rather than through hand outs or donations, thus resulting in strong, confident women.
