Warning: This talk might contain much more than you’d ever want to know about the way the world poops. But as sanitation activist (and TED Fellow) Francis de los Reyes asks — doesn’t everyone deserve a safe place to go?

The Kingdom Keepers's curator insight, February 4, 2014 9:13 AM

Less developed countries will not develop at the rate they are going, so it is nice to see more developed countries stepping in to give these less fortunate countries a boost. They can most certainly be a model of industrialization for these countries to mimic, and will hopefully follow in their steps for a successful development. -Brooke 

BandKids13-14's curator insight, February 4, 2014 9:21 AM

It is a great idea for more developed countries to help less developed coutnries in their deveoping process. A lot of coutries are developing less than most and they need help to catch up with the world. The whole world is developing very quickly and there are some countries that are being left behind. It is  a great move in Chinas part to help other countries.
