Barefoot College sees education as the most important tool in breaking the cycle of poverty, especially in rural areas and for people disadvantaged by caste.
The Barefoot education program aims at the holistic development of children and young people, with a special focus on girls and women. Placing a special emphasis on literacy and the teaching of practical knowledge and skills. This enables and secures people's education and training.
The concept is based on the idea of helping people to help themselves by promoting their self-efficacy. To be a role model for each other, to pass on knowledge, to use strengths and abilities of people in the regions.
