Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Malawi, Development, Environment, Science, Technology

Hactivate has a moving story about a windmill in Malawi, [1] “The windmill stands on a tripod of wooden polls about five metres above the ground. It consists of locally-available materials and as far as he can remember his investments were K500 for two bearings, K500 for a bicycle dynamo, K400 for a fun belt and K800 for a bicycle frame. [about $15 USD total].”
