I've worked with very talented engineers from Africa and don't see why
they can't solve some of these themselves.
Maybe "from" is the key word.

To my experience, people help on projects they either have a interest
in (hobby) or a use for (a need), if you enjoy what your doing, who
cares if others help, I've 5+ years working alone on my project and
have enjoyed every minute (well, almost every minute; although, it's
better time spent than watching the crap on TV).

I find the people with a "need" to be a PITA, like the kids in the
back seat of a long trip asking "are we there yet" every 5 minutes, I
just ignore them and enjoy the journey, despite their best efforts to
turn the journey into work with time tables and what they call
"improvements" that only benefits them. It helps me to remember that
"help" is something that is offered, not demanded, and my need to
enjoy the journey, outweighs their need for free stuff.
After all as Jim rightfully points out, one way to view the severity
of their "need", is by their willingness to roll-up their own selves
to solve it.
