Here is the design and instructions of this smoker:   http://learningbeekeeping.com/beekeeping-articles/bee-smoker-design-for-third-world-beekeeping/

Peace Corps volunteers and NGOs that do beekeeping should find it useful. Assembled from scrap, with no power tools. Only a hammer, nail, machete and maybe pliers.

After much trial and error, over the last year, I've come forth with a simplistic bee smoker design for use in third world areas. This began as a project with Paul Jackson when I interviewed him to make a documentary about his bee smoker collection . Drawing upon my experience in East Africa in the Wagogo tribal areas of Tanzania, I think all the materials needed could be found in most villages in the bush.

I'm calling it the 'Jackson-Taylor 3 can smoker'.

No, Jim, I'm not a PCV.  I did do many, many science expeditions to third world countries last decade. 

As for NGOs (Non Government Organizations)  that do beekeeping, I was thinking FARM Africa, Bees for Development, Bees Abroad, etc.
