rough 4WD track from Goroka. It's absolutely beautiful up there. The
'AT' stands for 'Appropriate Technology', meaning development projects
that are really thought out properly so that they are appropriate for
the people using them. 'Technology' here is anything from plastic
bucket showers and toilets for AIDS sufferers, to solar power. It is
just brilliant what Steve and Miriam and their team are doing. They
totally take into account all aspects of problems faced by locals and
come up with appropriate solutions in partnership with the people.
Di's going to be volunteering there for the next couple of weeks,
helping finalise the materials for a 4 week course they are starting to
run in Febuary. It introduces the concept of 'Development' and teaches
people how to start it in their village and how to get assistance and
support to do it.
