Needful Provision, Inc. (NPI)


Mission/ Purpose: NPI assists the poor and disadvantaged, worldwide, without discrimination, by the research, development, demonstration, teaching, and commercialization of unique self-help, self-sufficiency technologies. Subject technologies are also designed to conserve resources and help protect the environment --while benefiting the public.


History: David A. Nuttle, NPI’s founder, was previously engaged in the conduct of stated mission objectives in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as the U.S. Eight years ago, Nuttle founded NPI to create an appropriate organization to help achieve this mission. Nuttle’s prior work included his invention of 63 very unique self-help, self-sufficiency technologies ---inventions that were used to form the technical basis for NPI’s efforts. A few significant accomplishments, for NPI, have included creation of a self-help research, development, and training center in Oklahoma. NPI’s Latin Division, ACA, was started. In Russia, a large community food security project, known as the Self-Sufficiency Village has been started. Very detailed planning efforts have been undertaken in support of an “innovative” food production-type social enterprise in Egypt. (Recent and current projects are listed on NPI’s website.)
