Testimony and Reports from the 2014 Summer Course

“The trip went beyond my expectations as I got to not only learn about the technical side of the sustainable technologies but the human side of the implementation.”-Danielle Miller

“My experience was amazing, unexpected and surpassed anything I could’ve imagined.”-Tchinossanda Kandimba:

“The most significant change was that I learnt how simple the sustainable technologies are and how it can impact and affect peoples lives for the better. I feel that we take basic resources, such as water, electricity and gas for granted and attending this course has made me reflect.”-Aisha Butt

“The most valuable lesson I have learnt is the challenge of implementing eco-technologies in communities.”-Andrew Ging
