    Bravo Zachary!! This is from your admirers, in recognition of the great role you are playing on raising consciousness globally on very important energy issues, new technologies and trends.
    We are also starting at a small level, hoping to sustain the drive, as at starting with some background information on Uganda and hopefully about the regional later Africa issues later, and, at for short reviews of a few global developments.
    We need your prayers and support to keep a new flag on Africa flying…….
