women's groups - peanut shellers

posted Jun 12, 2010, 10:27 AM by Tom Emmons
We have taken on a new project, helping women's groups in the Adja region of Benin purchase materials for and build peanut shellers based on an award winning MIT design.  All proceeds from the summer garden party will go to toward this project.

We are beyond excited to be working on this innovative project.  These shellers reduce the need for manual and child labor, greatly increase productivity, and allow women to augment their incomes.  Think of it as a win, win, win!
