The Barefoot Photographers of Tilonia

The Barefoot College in Tilonia, India, began in 1972 with the conviction that solutions to rural problems lie within the community.

“It is the only college in India built by the poor for the poor and for the last 34 years managed and controlled and owned by the poor following the life-style and work-style of Gandhi. It is based on very simple living, eating, and working and people come for the challenge rather than the money. No one in the college can earn more than $100 a month.”
Barefoot College founder Bunker Roy
