Wild Fact About Me Our machinery is intended to save labor at the village level, thus supporting its users to increase their efficiency and their income. In the developing world, women are the primary beneficiaries of our technology. Full Belly Project, through the assistance of third-party collaborations, has introduced appropriate technology in 17 countries and will expand its reach of operations into 3 more in 2008.
My Philosophy We envision a world where the people of rural communities in developing countries can live lives of abundance, awakening each morning to days of economic possibility and going to sleep each night with bellies that are full.
What Gives Me Hope The Universal Nut Sheller (UNS) was originally developed to shell peanuts because there are approximately half a billion people in developing nations who rely on peanuts as their primary source of protein. However, the application of the UNS has been as varied as the countries to which it has been sent. In the Philippines and Guatemala, itís used to husk dried coffee. In Uganda, it shells Jatropha seeds, which can go straight into a diesel engine after processing, with byproducts available as organic fertilizer and insecticide. And in Southern Sudan, a small womenís group harvesting shea, a lucrative crop for shea butter and oil, takes advantage of the UNS to bypass some of the postharvest processing and add value to the nut. In all cases, Full Bellyís low-tech solution means increased production, increased profits and better quality of life.
