In memory of Paul Polak


Last month, we received the news of Paul Polak‘s passing, an entrepreneur with over 30 years of experience supporting the underserved. We send our condolences to his loved ones and hope that his legacy lives on for the community to create a more sustainable world.

Paul Polak and his role in Appropedia

For many years, Paul worked on developing and selling products that were cheap, durable, and usable for people at the pyramid base. He also supported us during the creation of The Appropedia Foundation, for which we are deeply grateful to him. We feel honored to have him as an ally of our work.

A couple of years ago, Lonny had the opportunity to record a series of interviews with Paul, speaking about his experience alleviating poverty through appropriate technology. Watch the interview below:
