From RSE student Wayne Medrud in his own words:

“I was at an event at RSE in about 2009 where Ram challenged all of us saying, ‘What will it take for you to be a World Player?’

“I had no idea of what I was capable of, since I hadn’t done anything but work with my hands for all of my 50 some odd years. But I went to the Name Field for Fieldwork
® and called forth future technologies and the courage to share them.

In the next 4 years I was introduced to rocket stoves, permaculture, biosand water filters from Friendly Water for the World and much more. Since 2014 I’ve made 4 trips to India also Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi while conducting training to teach this simple technology. And the best part of it all is that my son Noah, beginning at the age of 12, (now 15) has been there with me on 4 of those trips.

“Now as volunteer technical advisor for Friendly Water, my plans for the future include opening new counties to these sustainable ways to living including Togo, Ghana, Liberia to name a few. Recent developments will take me back to Rwanda to get training on a new microflush toilet design.

“They tell me I could be a real ‘Johnny Toilet Seed’. Not so sure how I feel about that title ;-).

“And to round out my summer, I will be returning to India to teach 15 groups of women from a group of Women’s Collectives in Tamil Nadu. These came about from one lady who came to the training I gave in February.

“Friendly Water for the World specializes in empowering women, people with HIV/Aids, people with albinism, unemployed youth, and alternatives to sex workers.”

Phoenix Rising School (PRS) alumnus and RSE student Noah Medrud, then age 12, was featured in  in the Nisqually Valley News.
