We are creating a "tower of life' to be used for both growing food and collecting rainwater. Our initial target site is Africa (primarily Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia) with expansion into a commercial project for domestic U.S. sales.

We are seeking an engineer / inventor with CAD-CAM skills to work with us to perfect the manufacturing design.

We will be seeking significant funding from US AID, and we will use the funding to obtain domestic and international patents on the design.

World Hunger Team will retain all rights to manufacturing, and a percentage ownership will be provided to the selected designer / engineer.
