Kebekol visited the Embassy in Manila and met Ambassador Mazumdar on their way to India for a six month course at the Barefoot College at Jaipur, Rajasthan.The project is a part of ITEC Program funded by the Government of India.Trainees under the International Solar Training Program are often illiterate or semi-literate grandmothers who maintain strong roots in their rural villages and play a major role in community development, bringing sustainable electricity to remote, inaccessible villages.
