FoST-Nepal wins the Shell BBC Challenge 2007

Goals and brief introduction:

The country of Nepal is facing an environmental crisis with wide-spread deforestation, excessive pollution, inadequate mobilization of natural resources, lack of safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation, and a heavy dependence on foreign sources of fossil fuels.

The Foundation for Sustainable Technologies (FoST) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization creating awareness to counter these trends by providing low-cost, low-tech, easily adaptable, locally-built sustainable technologies and education to improve the quality of life of the rural people.
