Bill Campbell, Fort Fairfield Rotarian, spoke to the club about service project opportunities in Guatemala. Bill described various potential projects which included medical and educational facilities construction, supplying composting latrine units, and Personal Energy Transportation (PET®) vehicles manufacturing and distribution.

PET® vehicles are three-wheeled, hand-“peddled” tricycle-like machines (see photos) that provide mobility to those who have lost the use of their legs. The PET® vehicles are manufactured in three sizes from child to adult.

In many areas these vehicles are used to provide gainful employment by being modified to pull street vendor carts, carry materials for recycling, and other such transportation-required occupations.

PET® is a Personal Energy Transportation International, Inc. registered mark.
