“Thunderbird students traveled to Bojonegoro in East Java, Indonesia, to monitor and evaluate the impact of the Kopernik-sponsored technologies (cook stoves and water purifiers) and distribution model on women and their communities. Kopernik asked TEM Lab to determine whether or not these two technologies have the potential to further the economic empowerment of women, and should that be possible, they wanted to understand how best to scale up access to the technologies in East Java and other Kopernik regions of action.

These two technologies had been determined by a local NGO (or “technology seeker”) to be of interest to potential Base of Pyramid (BoP) adopters (end users) in Bojonegoro. The local NGO partner – Farabi, in this case – then disseminates the technology to the end users at subsidized prices using a microfinance structure. The sales revenues are subsequently ploughed back into the project or sent back to Kopernik for use in other projects elsewhere.”
