This video is made for a pre study of made by eSeeker for the project “Renewable energy education in Uganda”. The partners are INUG (Engineers without borders Sweden), Education Finder Sweden (EF) MKFC Stockholm College, eSeeker Uganda and Busoga University (BU).
The interview is with a women in a district called Tororo in Easten Uganda working with an NGO called Mifumi. These ladies had no knowledge before in eletrical engineering but they were taken to India under the sponsorship of Barefoot College to train in solar energy. They speak some english but in the indian college language was not necessary. Mostly sign language, see and do and then fail and repeat the process was the method of teaching and learning. After six months they returned home to set up their own systems to the extent of building a circuit board and wiring a house.
