Dave Lindoo is the first volunteer to be featured. Well done Dave and best of wishes on your journey to Peru!
Hi, I am Dave Lindoo and I have chosen to volunteer six months of my time to travel to Cajamarca, Peru with Green Empowerment and help create, develop, and maintain renewable energy projects starting July of this year. I feel very lucky for having the opportunity to volunteer with Green Empowerment and I look forward to helping people in developing countries create and maintain sustainable projects that improve their lives. Ever since I’ve graduated with my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology I’ve only wanted to put that degree and knowledge towards the renewable energy industry. I believe it is a very promising field and it is our future. I also believe it the best choice for rural areas in developing countries because it is far more economical than extending the grid (which usually isn’t an option anyway) and each project can be specifically catered to the village’s needs.
