Dartmouth engineering major Rob Collier '13 and William Kamkwamba '14 — a.k.a. "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" and founder of Moving Windmills, which pursues development and education projects — teamed up to implement a solar power project in Malawi, Africa.
Engineers without Borders, USA is a nonprofit organization aimed at creating a better world by empowering emerging leaders to ensure that communities have access to adequate sanitation, safe drinking water, and other basic human needs. The University of Delaware EWB Chapter has recently begun projects to ensure a clean and accessible water supply for communities in Malawi and the Philippines. Since its inception in 2006, the chapter has also completed projects in Cameroon and Guatemala. To learn more about UD’s Engineers Without Borders chapter, http://www.ewb-ud.org.

UD's Engineers Without Borders Chapter is a student-run organization dedicated to helping communities around the world secure adequate sanitation, safe drinking water and resources to meet their basic needs. Their most recent project has taken teams to the village of Mphero in Malawi. http://www.ewb-ud.org/
With support from the World Bank, Burkina Faso's Institute of Water and Environmental Engineering is turning out graduates who are in high demand in the private sector. These young people, who have come to study in Ouagadougou from 27 African countries, are keen to transform Africa through science and technology. They need no longer leave the continent to earn a top-notch engineering degree.
It has never taken off, and could well be a death trap, but a home-made helicopter built in Malawi is drawing crowds captivated by its creator's determination to succeed against all the odds.
Passionate about bicycle building, Kajinga from the City of Mzuzu in Northern Malawi, built his very own dream machine that he regulary commutes around town with. Though only a prototype and with limited funds Kajinga who once worked at now closed engineering giant Brown and Clapperton, dreams of finishing his masterpiece to its full mechanical glory that forever has heads turning wondering how climbs up and cycles with such ease and normality.
Rice University's Rice 360°: Institute for Global Health is an award-winning, engineering education program that prepares students to solve complex problems through real-world challenges related to global health. More than 10 percent of Rice students are involved with Rice 360°, which has produced dozens of technologies that are saving lives in 19 countries. http://www.rice360.rice.edu/
Zambia and Zimbabwe will give French engineering firm Razel-Bec the task of repairing Kariba Dam. The dam's walls are swelling, raising the risk of cracks in the structure that holds back up to 180 billion cubic metres of water. A collapse of the dam wall could pose a risk to millions of people in Zambia and Zimbabwe -- as well as Malawi and Mozambique further downstream. The dam was built in the 1950s. According to its safety manager, the expansion should be completed by the end of 2020, while work on the spillway to contain the swelling is expected to be done by 2022.
This video, made by Deirdre Mulrooney with the kind support of Simon Cumbers Media Fund was shot in Malawi in December 2011, and documents TCD Engineering's part Irish Aid-funded Thermo-Electric Generator Pilot Project in Balaka, Malawi with Concern Universal.

We are a team of 7 mechanical engineering students from Strathclyde University, Scotland, who are currently working on their Master's level group project. This project addresses some of the agricultural problems that Malawi, like many developing countries, is facing. The aim of the project is to create a practical, cost-effective, and easily maintainable solution for the irrigation of crops.

Human animal hybrids exists. Best kept secret of half human half dog experiment. Human Experimentation An article clams that in Vancouver there exists an undercover laboratory where some of the most heinous human experimentation is going on. Why? Just to satisfy the needs of the rich, the 1% ers, the Illuminati. Leaked photos show that scientists have been able to cross breeds humans with dogs for rich pet lovers with a very specific interest in pets. And what would the price tag be on such an exclusive item? $50,000,000 According to this article a Dr. Paul Bradshaw from the Hartmon College Institute essentially stated that when you're rich there's only so much you can buy for a person who has it all. That getting them a pet human dog hybrid is better than buying them an Iphone 6. T...

SOUNDBITE (Chichewa): Vincent Gondwe, GTZ-ProBEC National Director: "Large institutions using rocket stoves have been saving between 80 - 90% of wood over the amount used on an open fire. Because of the stove's efficient combustion of wood there are also health benefits, as there is almost no unhealthy smoke compared to the unpleasant amounts in an open fire. Finally, using so much less wood is good for the environment." Mulanje, Malawi, July 22nd, 2008 8.Mid shot profile ProBEC trainer Francis Chagu...
