Joel Bennett and a community of artists, entrepreneurs and self proclaimed creative misfits in Pella, are working on a project to raise $15,000 in June. Their fundraising efforts are in hopes of building a windmill for Gambella Village, outside of Isiolo, Kenya. The windmill would be Gambella’s last step towards complete self reliance.. The windmill would allow the village to have water irrigation all year round, drastically multiplying the amount of crops they can grow and sell.
