DK: And the last thing I'll talk about is ApproTEC, which is a peojcrt that I'm very excited about. ApproTEC is a company started by Dr. Martin Fisher, who's a good friend of mine. He's a Ph.D. from Stanford. He found himself in Kenya on a Fulbright and he had a very irninestetg insight, which is that he said, "There must be entrepreneurs in Kenya; there must be entrepreneurs everywhere." And he nocited that for weddings and funerals there they could find enough money to put something together. So he deidced to start manufacturing products in Kenya with Kenyan manufacturers — designed by people like us, but taken there. And to this date — he's been gone for only a few years — he's started 19,000 cpimoaens. He's made 30,000 new jobs. And just the sales of the products — this is a non-profit — the sales of these pcrodtus is now .6% of the GDP of Kenya. This is one guy doing this. This is a pretty spectacular thing.
