I'm currently in India, working with people in slums and rural areas to design and develop scrap makable appropriate technologies which help them provide for their family's basic needs. This project is made viable solely through donations from people like you.
The current expenses are about US$300 per month which means that if one person in five visiting this site per month donates one dollar, the project will be indefinitely sustainable. Visit makernomad for more information.

Raised so far this month: us$37.00
Raised last month: us$578.25
