A once beautiful tropical paradise is being stripped bare of its rain forest. The 10 year civil war in Sierra Leone portrayed to the world in the movie "Blood Diamonds" has caused a huge influx of people to the city. Many are in poverty and are fast destroying the natural resources of this tiny country. Solar cooking offers one way to slow this onslaught on the rain forest and perhaps provide some income to the most needy who live day to day.
