Solar With A Mission
At Sun Path, we believe in the higher mission of environmental responsibility, and are active locally in climate education, advocating for smart climate policy, including solar. We believe in solar community outreach and are always looking for different ways to give back to the broader community through solar donations and empowerment opportunities.
Making a solar upgrade to your home will lower your carbon footprint and reduce your electric bills, but we also want you to feel good about making the decision to go solar. That’s why, for every solar panel system Sun Path installs, we make a donation to the International Solar Training Program’s “Solar Mamas” program.
What Is the Solar Mamas Program?
The International Solar Training Program is a collaborative effort between Barefoot College, the ITEC (Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation), and the respective governments and NGOs (Ground Partners) of participating countries in Africa, Asia, America, and the Pacific Islands.
Empowering Women With Solar Power
The program trains women in rural areas from around the world to become solar engineers. These women, known as “Solar Mamas,” design, install, and maintain solar systems that provide light and electricity to their homes and villages. To date there are more than 2,200 Solar Mamas around the world!
Solar Mamas' Impact
The Barefoot College program has been running for more than 15 years, and women from 93 countries, including India, Latin America, South America, the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia, have installed solar energy systems for more than 1,000,000 villagers around the world.
