In Tanzania, fishermen are rejecting the use of dynamite and going back to traditional methods which preserve fish stocks and coral reefs. A young African inventor has developed a revolutionary smokeless charcoal. In Kenya, a youth league in a Nairobi slum is giving girl footballers a new start in life and the black rhino is making a tentative comeback, while Esther and her son Erdo, who were first featured in TVE’s 1992 series Growing Up, are still running the gauntlet of cattle raiders in the North. The Hands On feature comes from Bangaldesh, where families make a new living by providing roadside snacks.
