Using Renewable Energy Technology's knowledge to fight poverty in Africa
By Mr. Simon Yontu, Director ACREST
Transfer of technology:
The use of waterwheel - for example - to pump water for domestic and irrigation purposes was very diffuse in Europe (London in 1400s) and in Syria (Hama). This efficient and simple technique is still not known in Sub-Saharan Africa. ACREST intends to bring this affordable technology to people.
ACREST is committed to bring technology that can make a difference in African rural areas.

ACREST does not intend to reinvent the wheel!
