A partnership bewteen Missouri Economic Development Through Green Enterpreneurship LLC and the Missouri S&T is pilot testing an innovative approach for famine relief in Kenya.

Historically, capable villagers moved away from Kamuga in search of employment in urban centers like Nairobi.

This has drained villages of many talented individuals. The Pula Cloud project is meant to reverse this situation.

Developed jointly by Andrew Schriner at the University of Cincinnati and Daniel Oerther at Missouri S&T, Pula Cloud provides an internet-based workplace for income generation.

The multi-faceted partnership between villagers, Cincinnati, S&T and EDGE brings university innovation from the laboratory to the field.

By utilizing a for-progit, income generating model, the partnership aims t address famine relief through economic empowerment at the level of the individual, rural villager.
