About the WOT
The test site contains a large number of renewable energy applications, and acts as an outdoor demonstration area for a large number of visitors each year, including many from developing countries. The WOT is one of the few organizations in the Netherlands that’s actively engaged in developing technological solutions for the poorest. For many ex-members, the WOT has been a stepping stone to a career in developing countries.
Technology occupies a very important place in the life of developing countries. At present there are very few resources were devoted to improving basic water pumps, filters, putboortechnieken, etc. The WOT is helpful. The WOT also acts as knowledge, and organize the annual T-Week, an introductory engineering course for development. The quality of the course is highly regarded and recommended, inter alia by MSF.
