PCV/The Gambia 08-Present Intro: Long Story Short Basic pounding of staple foods=not sweet. Big fuel-powered milling

machines=unsustainable. Engineers Without Borders- -Rowan University, New Jersey. Pilot study in India= altered the machine. One working machine in The Gambia now.

Now planning implementation Maas Maas I didnt bring the machinebut I have

pictures!! The Grinder Device The Grinder Device

Grinding Plates The Machine

Here She Works 1. Small boy sits on the machine 2. Helper pours in millet, groundnuts, etc into hopper. 3. One sitting pedals small small

4. The machine grinds 5. Bowl or rice bag collects milled product 6. Is finish way! Current Issues

Seeing if I can remake another one here. Remanufacturing the device *sustainability! -Local welder is busy. -Only tech. inst. has tools and knowledge to make the grinder.

- Grinding plates bought in US. Cost (labor, materials, etc) Funding? Availability of specific metals. Time is going, de.

My Vision Have local womens groups sign off on the idea -tell women you need this! Train local welders to make the base =profit. Have countrys technical college make the grinder device- -then sell them in bulk to local

welders=puts school on map helping country. Have NGO assist in funding and implementation. This machine could alter gender norms in this culture forever! (*GAD*)

Jarama! If you want any more information, please email me at: [email protected] PCV to take over project after April, Ms. Marnie Florin: [email protected]
