No Problem! - Six Months with the Barefoot Grandmamas is about the rural solar electrification project run by the Barefoot College in the village of Tilonia in the state of Rajasthan, India, where numerous illiterate rural women from all over the world, particularly Africa, are being trained as solar engineers. The solar-electrification project symbolizes hope, as a simple idea originating from a little-known village in India has the potential to impact global communities. The film follows the story of the 2011 batch of African women, from Tanzania-Zanzibar, South Sudan, Malawi, and Liberia, as they live together in Tilonia — leaving their families and their countries for the first time in their lives. Despite not knowing each other's languages, the women live and learn together for six months, united by their goal to become solar engineers and bring electricity to their villages, which have never had light. Through the stories of these women, a fascinating tale of sustainability, demystification of technology, and social inclusion unfolds.
