Local Community Action

We helped found a local group, in Lake Arrowhead, California, which we believe may become a model for other groups throughout the country. The group, Green Team Arrowhead, consists of like-minded individuals from various backgrounds, who are involved in different sectors of the economy. We come together to see what we can do to promote ecology, energy efficiency, and sustainability, along with other social goals. Rather than talk, we do. One person proposes a project, and the others... + read more

Appropriate Technologies Resource Center

We are creating an Appropriate Technologies Resource Center. This will be a repository for references relating to the implementation of appropriate technologies in water and sanitation in developing areas. Most of the solutions are low-tech. They are simple to implement, based on skills which are easy to learn and teach, and utilize low-cost easily-obtainable materials. We are accumulating a library, with resources in every medium, which will provide the basis for learning and teaching... + read more

Projects With the Peace Corps

Through their administration, we strive to get funds to Volunteers in the field, as quickly as possible, to aid in their water and sanitation projects. The Peace Corps operates under the premise that they are there to provide manpower, education, and training, not money. Sustainability can only be achieved through helping and teaching. Their projects are generally implemented at a very low cost, and are designed for great impact... + read more
