It's an effort to teach isolated African communities how to build wind turbines out of old car parts, junk, etc. Energy independence at low cost for villages, rural clinics, schools. . . it's at least interesting and imaginative, and apparently works in some cases! I hope it proves viable and can be repeated all over Africa and the entire developing world.
I've spent time in Kenya, too, and remember Mombasa well. Have any experiences down there? Let us know!
