Sisters Samina Iqbal and Maria Daniel are Pakistanis who chose to join the U.S.-based Sisters of Loretto, joining an order being one of only two options for Christian women where they came from. Now trained to install and trouble-shoot solar electric equipment, they run a mission in Faisalabad, west of Lahore, and help people overcome the unreliability of the local electric grid to run lights, electric fans, and more. As women in an unusual role, they set examples for their society and work to change its outlook and prospects.
Interview by Laura Palmisano of KVNF radio, Paonia, Colorado USA, where the sisters were taking advaned studies at Solar Energy International. Series Producer, Frieda Werden.
