A crash course in changing the world.
i think it will fail if it fails to capitalize on the love of football powered by the windmill...
The recent event can be used to sell the idea around the area,with football as one of the points,among others such as lighting your home,and streets. In terms of security,this would allow the residents to avert surprise visits from the drug dealers by being able to see their arrival.This then would allow them to maybe hide possessions that would normally be taken away otherwise. Or use the lighting psychology, by turning off lights to signal to the dealers residents not home or asleep,which could avoid them the hustles.
NGO's were all excited to bring solar power to the nomads in Mongolia. The NGO's thought they might use the power for food refrigeration or something "useful." Instead they all power TV's, they don't eat any food that they want to refrigerate anyway. Get more TV's into the Favelas, then you will see more windmills.
I think the EVOKE Network didn´t fail. It made the people in the Favelas happy. It might have failed to acknowledge the local needs and aspirations. Soccer is a very big part in national pride, identity and part of the daily life in Brazil for a lot of people. The Evoke Network should always have as objectives to listen and understand the needs and dreams of locals.
