Diane Hendrix, creator of the Young World Inventors web video series, has launched a Kickstarter page to raise funds for this project:

There’s a quiet revolution going on in Africa, and it’s a bright one, eclipsing the usual “dark continent” story. It’s creative business with a global attitude, and it’s inspiring, for both Africans and Americans. With your help, we can post the first ten stories on a new website about young innovators inventing change in East Africa. Will you help build a community for African/American innovation? Help us edit ten webisodes this year.

If you pledge $75, you’ll get a bike-powered cell phone charger designed by Bernard Kiwia of Global Cycle Solutions. There are a lot of very cool Kickstarter rewards available at other levels. Check it out and lend them your support at Kickstarter
