Storyline

In Cape Verde, Ade visits a community living in the shadow of an active volcano. He witnesses how solar power is transforming lives by bringing electricity to remote communities. In Senegal, Ade visits Goree Island, a former staging post on the transatlantic slave trade. He then travels down the coast to a fishing village where he hears that much of Senegal's catch is being taken by foreign companies to be turned into fish-meal to feed livestock in western countries. Ade then visits Lake Retba where he joins the workers who wade through the lake gathering salt which they sell for less than half a penny per kilogram. He hears how his host has tried to escape to Europe but how he failed to get any further than the appalling camps in Libya. When he visits Ivory Coast, Ade meets more people who are hoping to build a new life in Europe. This time however they are footballers training to become professionals in Europe's big leagues. However, it does not always work out that way as many ... Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>
