with eyes open wide
I think that creativity is in all of us, not just “artists” and “designers” who have a special degree from an institution.
Dr. Awojobi Oluyombo is an example of how a normal person can use his God-given creativity and reasoning ability to create inventions that seem impossible.
This man is a surgeon in a very remote region of Nigeria, his homeland. In a place without access to modern-day medical equipment, he has improvised beautifully to provide quality care to his patients.
For example, “The operation table utilises a car jack to lever up the patients and the distiller and autoclave in the back, made out of domestic cooking gas cylinders, are powered by corn cobs given to the clinic by farmers who use part of the clinic’s land to grow their produce. ACE gets access to bio-fuel and the farmers get rid of waste.” (Source)
I highly encourage you to read on and be inspired by what one man has started in a rural town in Nigeria. How can we create more sustainability in our own lives and towns?
