this is a terrific post … I am collaborating with a group of engineers out here in the San Francisco Bay Area on very small scale solar thermal co-generation and its applications in developing countries which include domestic cooking, water purification, pasteurization, food processing, refrigeration and electricity.

Now that I am aware of PCIA I will look further into it and contact you, as the goals you state are completely aligned with my own.

Thank you!

It is the first I have heard of it. But you are doing the right thing promoting its importance through local partners. Some large national and multinational corporations may have offices in some of the areas PCIA operates in and your local partners might be able to ask for funding help that would allow the program to expand and maybe provide information on it to the local people in various alternative formats like minority languages and for disabled persons who may need to have it explained in picture language, sign or braile. Again, this is a great program. Best of luck on it and best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

Education is the key to everything! People will only be interested in solving a problem if they are aware about it. Involving the media and getting the public interested will definitely help this worthy cause.

I think this is similar. The problem, and solutions, are obvious but only to those who know about them.

I’ve done some research on the web recently about solar stoves, built from low-cost materials and powered by nothing but sunlight and wonder if that might be one of the options offered? You can’t get more sustainable than sunshine.

Put the money you receive into the products needed to make the change…and let families pass the instructions and free or cost product along to their aunts and uncles, cousins and children. Humans love to share resources with their families…and they do it all the time. The Nonprofit and government subsidy sectors have tried to supplant that system and its very costly and ineffective compared to these organic networks. Just my observation… :-)
