Low-tech basics is your window into how peoples, who live in developing nations, would survive and thrive, if they believed in themselves and did not cave into cultural practices and habits, groupthink, and intrusion by outsiders, who, deliberately or unwittingly, try to run their lives. One cannot truly influence an individual, in a developing nation, unless one is willing to eat what they eat, sleep where they sleep, and get around as they do. If you do it with warmth and kindness, they will open their hearts to you and unroll a crimson carpet of brotherhood and adopt you into their lives.

This site will expose you to that world.
