Abstract

The author worked with the residents of a small rural village in Haiti. In addition to the environmental stress of the region, there was an absence of basic infrastructure to support the basic necessities of life. This article reports on the introduction of a solar cooker to the community in a culturally sensitive manner. The community absorbed that change and went further, into computer networking. The literature particularly in the area of technology transfer was used to guide the researcher during interaction with the local people.
