Commitment to Action

Taking Do-It-Yourself technologies to the last mile

Commitment by

The Kopernik

In 2010, Kopernik, through its enhanced on-line technology marketplace, committed to disseminate appropriate Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technologies that can be constructed by people in developing countries using locally available materials. These technologies include a corn sheller and a biomass charcoal briquette process. In addition to disseminating the instructions for the construction of DIY technologies through their website, Kopernik also provides seed capital to purchase the necessary equipment and materials, and deploys fellows to project sites to train the local partners in the production of the technologies and creation of business opportunities around them.
