The WindAid Institute program was set up to help provide electricity to those without through the use of wind turbines. As such we aim to set as low a price as possible in an effort to make this opportunity available to more people and increase the number of wind turbines that together we can provide to those communities most in need.

We are not funded by grants or benefactors and so it is the contribution from our volunteers that enables us to buy the materials required to build the wind turbines. Subsequently we can provide wind turbines to communities in Peru who cannot afford to financially contribute.

The remainder of the fee covers your time with WindAid Institute. This accounts for accommodation, food, support staff, operational expenses, and transport during the project phases.
