Thanks Risa . It is good to let me know the idea was there for sometime. My proposal is different because it specifically focuses to poor villages and it has social element targeting those who can't purchase their own solar dishes.
The second social aspect is we intend to save environment and cutting trees which is the only energy supply for the target population or villages. This tree cutting caused constant drought that in turn adversely affected all living creatures.
Nevertheless, I am open to share idea and joining hands.

Thanks and please come on board . Your contribution will enlighten the idea.
Yes in the south of the country we have fruits, nuts etc....and having dehydrators will definitely boost the community center. Tell me can it be locally made? Will having dehydrators and burning its skin likewise boost the bio-fuel as alternate option during the rainy days.
