The Barefoot College sent French and Canadian photographer and filmmaker Varial* to document the lives of 15 indigenous women from 5 countries in Latin America throughout the electrification process: preparing to leave for this incredible journey, a 6-month training period in India, returning to their communities and electrifying more than 100 homes. The majority of the communities are indigenous and several have survived persecution and genocide with the majority of survivors currently living an impoverished existence.
