Mexico José Vega (left) and Hector Guzmán (right) teach students from different Mexican regions how to solder and connect cells for a solar panel during a class in Jomanichim, an indigenous community in the municipality of Tenejapa, in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. The class is led by Manuel Barrón, from the Desarrollo Regional Autogestivo Integral Sustentable (DRAIS) organization. The students will make their own solar panels after learning this delicate process, which needs to be done carefully to avoid burning the cells.
