Full Belly Project

I came across this video and I thought "what a great concept." Thanks to the innovator: Mr. Jock Brandis for the peanut sheller for African use.

It has already greatly improved the nutrition of African children and reduced the labor of women. The children will not suffer from hunger anymore because of this great innovation. My hope is that it spreads all over the countries where hunger is a huge problem.


I just love to read about "feel good stories" like this one.

It is indeed a "feel good story". I have come across many different small projects like this. The only problem is that some "big" agency should support this so that such ideas can be "vulgarised" on a large scale, because the needs are big.

I liked the "Ten Finger" part of the Rotary lady. It is a tribute for the "International Women's Day".

We need more stories like these to hit the mainstream media so others can be aware of these good works.

To Peter,

I love "feel good stories".
As a matter of fact, I Google for them all the time.

Hi Jill,

The mainstream media likes nothing better than wars, conflicts and natural disasters. It's their bread and butter.

Wonderful project and "feel good" video for the rest of the "civilized" who for the most part forget to appreciate where the real food comes from and how it's produced...

Hi Daria,

It's good to get a reminder once in a while.
