Part 1: "Appropriate" Technology

 

In the first part of this two-part series with Martin Fisher, the founder of KickStart International, Fisher explains how he founded KickStart to utilize creative engineering and technology to empower farmers in rural Africa. With the invention of their "MoneyMaker" water pump, KickStart has created over 150,000 new enterprises and businesses, and moved over 750,000 people out of poverty. Also discussed: how climate change is having an effect on rural farming practices, and why KickStart chooses to sell their pumps rather than give them away.
