While I'm not thrilled about the existence of slaughterhouses, I'm happy that they're putting the 'waste' to good use. Africans sure can use all the help they can get.

Energy and the cost to the poor in Africa is overwhelming .... I still saddens me when I think of the many every week that are electricuted in shanty towns whilst trying to tap into the few power lines ....just to have a little of what we really take for granted

Unfortunately I couldn't get this page to load, but anything that will help people in Africa, who have suffered ridiculously over the past century, to do better is wonderful.
