Sanjit "Bunker" Roy (b. 1945) is an Indian social activist and the founder of the Barefoot College (est. 1971) in Tilonia, Ajmer, Rajasthan, India. .The college takes men, women and children who are illiterate and semi-literate from the lowest castes, and from the most remote and inaccessible villages in India and other countries in Africa and South Asia, and trains them to become "barefoot" water and solar engineers, architects, pathologists, midwives, accountants, and etc.. These villagers then work within their own communities, thus making them less dependent on "outside" skills. Photo by Suzanne Lee for Panos London
