A life changing solar powered pearl millet thresher for sub-Saharan African women

We are developing a compact, solar powered device that threshes and winnows pearl millet. We collaborated on our design with women farmers in Niger. The women found it to be fast and efficient. Our thresher will enable women to produce more meals per day without the tremendous toll on their bodies. Our plan is to build 50 threshers to distribute for feedback prior to mass production. We believe this will improve the lives of women and increase food security in a vulnerable region of the world.
