Women are Strong leaders.

The time the entire world shall know the strenght of a woman, the ability to bare pain, sorrow, responsibilities, and the strenght to slowly but confidently walk through it with diginity, beauty and patience, is the time they will know that women can make bettter leaders and strong companions.

I wish to draw your attention to the above journal entry that might be of interest to you. It talks about a Nottingham University project in the U.K. has turned banana waste into an efficient fuel source. The emphasis of the project was on developing a simple technology that can be used in developing countries without the need for a large financial outlay. The fuel bricks are made by hand without needing any mechanical equipment.

Gathering wood for fuel is a time consuming job, mainly done by women who sometimes have to walk over six hours a day to get firewood. They are hoping that this banana fuel might help reduce dependence on wood as an energy source across Africa. They say that they are happy to give the idea away for free and are encouraging people who want to use the idea to get in touch.
