Develop an open source hands-on educational program that teaches the essentials for individuals within their community to become the leaders by example of how to build their Solar Village. Based on the Gandhian principle of "be the change you wish to see in others", each participant will learn hands-on, how to first create their own sustainable, solar powered home, with the view of then being able to spread this knowledge and experience to their neighbors, and through them the community or Solar Village as a whole. Eventually this knowledge can be shared through the thousands of communities around the world, creating Solar Villages everywhere.
The intention is to develop a program that can be taught hands-on, in a week, that provides the essential skills for building a sustainable habitat for individuals, while at the same time providing the tools to teach neighbours and the broader community.
