Our mission is to be the best in the world in micro hydro electric and water resource management: by evolving innovative damless hydroelectric and water transfer technology. We create Today’s Tall Tree Nurseries to support Micro Finance for women farmers and their families using the Carbon Tax Fund, a new form of foreign aid. We export Mechanization into Africa for more productive agriculture. We do all this to address the problem of African Poverty.
African Poverty: the Most Serious Threat
Do you know why poverty is the most serious threat to world peace? Poverty leads to hopelessness, which in turn provoke people to desperate acts. One thinks one has nothing to lose by turning to violence. Poverty also leads to clashes between populations over scare resources of water and arable land. Over one billion people live on less than $1/day: this is not a formula for world peace.
Should MicroFinance be the First Investment in Africa?
International Aid is a $5 billion business, but ironically microfinance support only receives 1% of this amount. In an underdeveloped world of scarce resources, which should be our priority? Housing? Sanitation? Health Care? Infrastructure? Education? All of these are important. We believe that giving the poor access to credit lets them immediately apply their farming skills. They create capital to begin the long road to recovery. Right now the poor have no control over capital.
This is opposite to the view that people are poor because they lack the skills. This view takes the initiative and responsibility from poor people.
A Conscious Corporation: Not Charity – Not Governments
Without proper guidelines, globalization has the potential of being highly destructive.The “strongest take all” must be replaced by rules that allow the poor to take a place on the highway: the divide between the haves and the have-nots is widening.
Some corporate social companies try to do good for people and the planet as long as they can do it with profit. Some of their CEOs are sincerely interested in social change, yet ultimately they are responsible to the owners or shareholders of the company that strive to increase growth in their investment. This is capitalism – half developed without a real social conscience.
Showering grants and low interest loans into the hands of the underdeveloped countries is not the answer: otherwise the problem would have been solved a long time ago. Why? These governments tend to be inefficient, slow, prone to corruption, bureaucratic and self-perpetuating, while amassing power and wealth for themselves.
Many people who are concerned with the problem of world poverty have started non-profit corporations. Yet, these companies have significant built-in weaknesses. They rely on a steady flow of donations, but when these donations stop, so does the company. In hard times, this flow slows down. Eventually, “compassion fatigue” sets in and donors stop giving. Directors of these companies know that there is never enough money to accomplish their aims.
What about the multi-lateral corporations, such as the World Bank? Like governments, they too are slow, bureaucratic, and self-serving and worst—very conservative. They look at the problem in their wide angle lens of large-scale economic growth, while the poor people are forgotten in their spin. They are looked at as objects. Unfortunately, these corporations choose to work through underdeveloped governments. Instead, they need to tap into the creative innovations outside of governments: the Social Business.
The Conscious Corporation can play a crucial role. They are above all a business, with resources, incentives and they are market savy. A Conscious Business looks at things differently: they are a non-loss business, but also a non-dividend business. Ultimately they pay back their original investors, but the business wishes to continue its long term social goals: it is self-sustaining and in this way it continues to gain more social benefits every year.
People who invest in this Conscious Business receive the same personal satisfaction as philanthropists. The difference is that there is no need to pump in donations every year as is done with charities.
The Grameen Bank in Bangledesh is a good model for micro finance: it gives loans to 7 million poor women farmers with a promise of a 97% repayment rate in 78,000 villages. This bank claims that 64% of the borrowers have crossed over from poverty over a period of five years.
Could not these poor women farmers pull themselves up by their own plow? They borrow in groups of five women – no two can be closely related. When one of the group wishes to take out a loan, one must receive approval from the other members of the group. Payment is done over a phone application, which encourages savings. There is greater flexibility in repayment, because of other financial commitments like school tax. The group acts as a social network of encouragement and psychological support. Ten or twelve such groups come together to meet weekly. This center leadership is selected democratically.
We appeal to the multinational companies with an innovative strategy: a company needs to gain a foothold in a new market. The social business can begin this process and provide a great deal of goodwill to the new company. Damone was one of those companies that partnered with the Grameen Foundation to market a nutritious yogart for the children of the poor. Their success story is explained in Creating a World without Poverty by Muhammad Yunus, the winner of a Nobel Peace Prize in 2006.
We are appealing on behalf of 50% of the world that own only 1% of the world assets. We are appealing to the top 1% of the world that own 40% of the world’s assets. We are also appealing to the top10% of the world that own 85%.
We appeal to the world’s greatest billionaires: will their grandchildren be able to enjoy their wealth with this eventual threat of global warming and pollution? Without an ethic of change, we will lose what is most priceless, which has no price tag. If basic needs are not met, poor people could easily be attracted to violence, civil unrest and terrorism.
African Energy Poverty
We are in an era of scarce energy supplies at a time of global warming and soaring global populations. Generating innovative forms of electric power is not only to light up our houses – it is lighting up our future. The operative word is “innovative”. It is pay now or there will be no future!
To make things worst, coal, oil and natural gas is quickly causing global warming and pollution from their green house gases, primarily through carbon dioxide emissions, which form an invisible blanket over the earth, thereby making the globe warmer.
By mid-century, we will be looking at a world of 9 billion people — a 40% to 50% increase. During that same period it is expected that the increase in populaton will double the demand for all forms of energy. The “golden” one billion people living the “American style” of living will evolve into 2- 3 billion – all over-consuming and polluting at a phenomenal rate. This will all cause a doubling of carbon dioxide by mid-century. Roughly 40% of the CO2 created in United States come from the production of electricity and 30% comes from transportation. We aren’t even mentioning the pollution created in China and many South Eastern Asia cities – including 20 of their most polluted cities in the world.
The next big boom in technology will be clean energy. This opportunity will help stabilize our planet and it will provide an opportunity for some countries who embrace this innovation to renew and regenerate itself. Those countries that are prosperous and innovative will have an edge.
We are in an “energy climate” era. Unfortunately, the total investment in research and development for electric utilities in the United States is 0.15 % compared to 8 -10% for most competitive industries. The last big breakthrough in this industry was in 1957 with tha advent of the nuclear reactor. Contrast this with 8 – 9 generations in medical technology from x-Ray to the CAT Scan.
In the meantime, we are all living on the Titanic and we all have hit the iceburg. Others are still dancing in the ballroom. Nature will take its course unless we all come to grips with the problem. We need to act!
Monsoon climates typically have two distinct seasons: wet and dry. Information about when and where the monsoon will arrive is important for farmers, especially as 96.4% of Africa’s fields lack irrigation systems. The complexity of climate systems makes forecasting the monsoon tough. It is erratic anyway: four years in every ten, it is abnormal.
Furthermore, humans are changing the environment. Clearing forest and vegetation means less water is stored in the land. Air pollution is a huge problem, too, much of it caused by cooking at home.
The HUG Lifeboat
One very big lifeboat to the passengers of the World Titanic is the HUG. It can provide the necessary irrigation system in remote areas of Africa without the use of a dam: the kinetic energy comes from the velocity of rivers or rapids, which provide both irrigation and electricity.
This is one of the magic bullet that everyone has been searching, providing abundant, reliable, clean, cheap electrons. The HUG is the next great power breakthrough which can promise exponential growth because of its low cost and efficiency. The HUG captures the energy of the vortex. It creates an environment where the velocity of the ambient flow of moving water becomes a faster laminar flow because of the spiraling pipelines inside its body. A helical turbine located at the end of the HUG is rotated perpendicular to the flow, which in turn rotates a submersible pump. High pressure water is then sent up to a neighboring water tower. The head of water in this tower provides a local irrigation system. This system also provides a source of electricity from a second helical turbine, which is located at the bottom of the water tower.
What is amazing about this innovation is that all of this is accomplished without the use of a dam in remote areas of underdeveloped countries where there is a great need for both irrigation and power. The new hydroelectricity can be transferred to power irrigation pumps miles away. Imagine what the combination of both the HUG and MicroFinance can recreate: a tripling of production of crops and a new localized cold storage and processing system for our poor women farmers.
A Billion Trees
There is one more piece of the puzzle which will help change the global warming crisis. There is simply no other way to soak up carbon dioxide in our world except from trees. We propose to introduce orchards of fruit, nut and foliage trees in between local crops with our poor women farmers using agro-culture by bringing ecological principles to bear in agro-ecosystems: novel management approaches that have not previously been considered. It is founded on land tenure and microfinance for women farmers.
A billion tree seedlings can be developed on land that is owned or leased and protected by women farmers who are supported in turn with microfinance on their farms which can number up to two million 1.5 acre farms (500 trees/farm x 2,000,000 farms).
Older trees are four times more productive is capturing carbon dioxide.This formula guarantees older trees, which will be maintained over their 50 year lifespan. The trees will serve a double purpose of foliage for farm animals, fruit and nuts, which will offset any impending famine. The root system of trees tap into the deeper water resources.
The carbon tax system will finally have a purposeful use for their exorbitant fund. If the value of the 50 year forest is brought forward to the first five years, the fund can finance the MicroFinance and Irrigation Plan. The third party in this plan, which monitors the new forest of orchards, is Living Water MicroFinance Inc. , a non-profit company and its sister company which hold the patent rights to the HUG, Living Water Is Corporation, a Conscious Business.
The Graduating Classes are Blessed!
They will know the corners of the world. They will do things, think things and see things unimagined to us. They will learn to be happy.
Our millennial (born after 1980) are also the most environmentally and socially conscious generation than we have ever seen through social media and unimagined information through Google. It is in their hands!
A $10,000 Charitable Long Term Donation to Living Water MicroFinance Inc. will provide a tax receipt which can reduce one’s taxes on average by $3000. In addition, because this non-profit company is a conscious business, its mission is to offer a repayment on investments including donations over a long term exceeding 3 to 5 years. This means that there is an option related to one’s charitable donations, which can be returned as opposed to receiving a dividend in the following form:
Over landing in Kenya or Uganda
Traveling overland can be an exciting and rewarding way to explore Kenya including a safari in game parks. Long Term Donors are considered to be partners and as such form an integral part of the company. Part of the repayment of the donation after 3 to 5 years is made in the form of a two week safari trip in Kenya or Uganda, which is transferable to any member of the family. The purpose of the trip is to gain appreciation and sensitivity to our mission.
The sad paradox is that Africa, which holds 60% of the world’s uncultivated arable land, is home to the largest population of chronically hungry, malnourished and, in some years, starving people. Africans are generally a net importer of food.
We must realize the importance of African agribusiness in long-term economic transformation. Taking the value chain approach, the World Bank has estimated that Africa’s agribusiness market will reach $1 trillion in 2030. African governments and donors must treat the agricultural sector in Africa as a commercially viable sector with a potential to create millions of jobs and dollars in revenue.
Tanzania has over 44 million hectares of arable land of which less than a quarter is currently under cultivation. This means over 34 million hectares of land, almost the size of Germany, suitable for food production is not being utilized.
You cannot farm an area the size of Germany with a hand hoe. The hand-held hoe should be in the museum, not in the hands of African farmers. According to the World Bank there are around five tractors for every 1,000 farmers in Africa as compared to almost 1,600 tractors for every 1,000 farmers in the U.S.
In 2014, through the Malabo Declaration, the African Union (AU) recognized the importance of resorting to mechanization to accelerate agricultural growth in Africa. Eventually, there will be more mechanization, but on a maximum size of 50 acres as in the case of Sri Lanka, an over-populated island with limited land resources.
The survival of the human race in the next millennium will be tied to the success in managing fresh water.
The failure by government to provide water through irrigation projects has been cited as one of the biggest bottlenecks small scale farmers are facing.
LIVING WATER FOR LIFE
Water is at the core of sustainable development. Water and economic development are closely associated. A water-secure world is more than a goal unto itself. It is a critical and necessary step towards a sustainable future. Water is a central pillar of sustainable economic growth.
GLUT OF CARBON DIOXIDE TACKLED
According to a 2011 report, somewhere between 52%-65% of green house gasses are carbon from fossil fuels, and 15% resulting from deforestation. Yet, how else can we help rid ourselves of the glut of C02?
We sell agroforestry to the African farmer as adaption first and mitigation as a bonus.
HELPING SOLVE WORLD’S CARBON POLLUTION
On a 1.5 acre farm of 300 trees:
- There will be 10 tons/year of CO2 emission absorption: at the rate of $15/ton, the Net Present Value (NPV) is $150/year (at the rate of $100/acre).
- The Carbon Tax Fund can support 300 trees for a total cost of $150/year for a period of 25 years plus an initial $450:
- There will be 300 trees with a NPV of $0.50: at the rate of $15/ton, the Net Present Value (NPV) is $150/year.
- Add $1.00/tree for reporting and auditing for 25 years (that’s a one-off total – not per year): $300 to be monitored by Living Water MicroFinance Inc. for 25 years.
There is a stipulation that all biomass on the 1.5 acre farm will be converted to biochar every year. The calculations for one acre is $100/year for biochar support of 200 trees and $300 initial support for the NPV of 200 trees ($100) and the reporting and auditing over 25 years ($200).
This Carbon Tax Fund Support will be converted into micro finance assistance. Each $150/farm/year will be recycled nine times for a total of $1,350. This fund will be made available to other farmers who need support before the orchards become productive after 18 months.
The women farmers and their families maintain this agroforest farms by planting vegetable like yam in between the new tree seedlings. The micro finance loan is due after the harvest. The original fruit and nut tree seedlings along with nitrogen fixing trees are supplied by Today’s Tall Tree Nursery.
The tree nursery funding will be supported by $300 NPV and Biochar charges/acre. The $80,000 Today’s Tall Tree Nursery will be supported by 267 acres or 106 hectare (0.4 square miles).

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.
2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?
After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.
Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!
Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
