Top Banana is an outreach project based in Tshesebe, Botswana. Its main focus is to provide an opportunity for Orphans & Vulnerable Children (OVCs) to develop in a drug free, crime free environment that offers shelter, education, skills, positive attitudes and personal qualities through the culture of learning and work. Their aim is for these children to gain skills to become integral members of society.

- October 2007: Newsletter published
- April 2006: The Solar Cooker is the final stages of testing and five models have been distributed in the village to be put through their paces. We know that it can cook meat, vegetables, rice, potatoes on the same principle as a slow cooker, but want to know whether it can cook traditional food here (eg papa, dumplings etc), and, most importantly, whether it can be adopted into cultural life. We also want to know whether it can stand up to other realistic factors like kids kicking it etc. If it does, we will start to make and sell them on a bigger scale as a way of generating an income for us and for the people that make them.
