TheCarter Center's campaign to eradicate the guinea started in 2008. Guinea worm disease is a particularly gruesome malady in which a water-born parasite grows inside the human body and then burrows its way out through the skin. The good news is that, thanks to a health education campaign spearheaded by the Carter Center and made possible through partnerships with the WHO, the Gates Foundation, and the UK government, the disease is poised to be completely eradicated by 2010, making it only the second disease (following smallpox) to be eliminated from the earth.

Chennamma et Yelamma étaient casseuses de pierre. Kalayati et Zayda étaient femmes de ménage. Analphabètes et nées dans la pauvreté, aucune dentre elles ne voyait la lumière au bout du tunnel jusquà ce quelles décident de créer leur propre lumière. Très inspirante, leur histoire porte en fait sur le pouvoir des femmes. En Inde, on les appelle les ingénieurs solaires aux pieds nus. Ces femmes ont appris seules à fabriquer, à installer et à réparer des lampes solaires dans des villages jusquici sans éclairage public

Creative entrepreneurs in South Africa are benefiting economically from recycling electronic waste by using it as raw materials for manufacturing. They're also refurbishing computers and selling them as cheap second-hand units. In nearby townships, some of these refurbished units are placed in Internet cafes for use by those South Africans who can't afford to buy new ones. These initiatives are also bringing much needed jobs to the unemployed in the country.

Gathered in the Kayapo village Piaraçu near banks of the imperiled Xingu River in May 2011, an assembly of 320 indigenous representatives from 18 ethnicities from the Xingu basin and beyond were joined by leaders of the Movimento Xingu Vivo and Amazon Watch to discuss the impending human rights and environmental disaster that is the Belo Monte Dam, and ways for its opponents to forge a single and unified force to resist its construction.
