The residents who are living in the Third World have to do manual labor continuously. However, none of minimal equipment could be supplied for them. JIGE(지게) is Korea's representative tool used to transport goods that can be carried by the human strength.. it is made up of simple structures. But carrying a JIGE on the back saves three percent more energy than it does on the head. This carrier is made with a box of relief supplies. So it is possible to recycle boxes that get discarded. The box is waterproof that is made of thick paper, and it is dismantled easily. On the box, there is a manual which is easy to be followed by anyone.
