but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

mobilizing wisdom

Another video from the FaceBook Funwall -- this one from the incomparable Fran Zimmerman of the St. Christopher House Adult Literacy Program.

The video is about a Barefoot College project: The First Women Barefoot Solar Engineers Of The World.

The Barefoot College began in 1972 with the conviction that solutions to rural problems lie within the community. The College encourages practical knowledge and skills rather than paper qualifications through a learning by doing process of education.

"First they ignore you. Then they fight you. Then you win."

Very, very cool!

I love the lesson about keeping all card carrying engineers far away from the villages!

Thanks for another roots experience on a much-needed (by me) roots day!

Happy Earth tomorrow everyone!
