Bearers of Light: Karuna-Shechen’s solar technicians!

The 12 women from Nepal who successfully completed Karuna-Shechen’s Solar Electrification Training this spring have already installed more than 100 solar electricity sets!

Earlier this year, women from six remote, underserved villages travelled by bus to Kathmandu, where they spent two full weeks learning about electricity and solar panels, as well as how to use different tools and repair solar sets. They learned skills, gained confidence, and each one received her certification.

Since the training, these twelve women have been bringing solar light to their villages — 100 sets installed so far!

Below are pictures of their journey: from their training to the distribution and installation of the first solar sets in the small village of Khopachangu.
