singapore without which probably mainland china would never have enjoyed the inward investments and the love every culture revolution that singapore has gifted asean- currently mahbubani is connecetd to education summits but paradoxically not insisting

that jack ma and sir fazle abed soliutions be included

 there must be 10 reasons to celebreate belt road summits and their connections with microeducation summoits

yes as president jin explainmed at silicon val;ley may 2018, when like he did you start at the world bank in 1980 and telphones work (in china they dindt in 1980) you value basic infrastructure as a human right, and you reinterpret every hiostorical accident where borders were erectyed in such a way that small enetreprsie were greatest trading losers need tp be undersstood as a missing 5th grade currilua - like all of the top 10 missing curricula - the problem is with teachers and thoise who certify courses more than students

belt road debates apply to ever contienmt where colonosation by empires left behing win-lose trading rouites; but yes the rteason why the east has risen since 1946 is that it has succeeeded in redesigning win0win trading rputes which had been destroyed by the 2 sisland maruitime powers - uk west of eurasia , japoan east of eurasia

every new neighbors bridged is an opportunity tpo twin youth in cultural and co-0creativity celebrations to replace previous conflict zones

if you look at a map of the wprld bangaldesh was a double loser of colonisation - when britain left iundia its parting lblow to bangaldesh was to make it a colony of (west) pakistan- what the world needs know is one latitude 20 road - connecting bangladesh-myanmar-chin eastwards and bamgladesh india pakistan -gulf, suez, mena med sea westwards; do that and invets in cox's bazaar as a shared natioin megaport and border crisses would disappear as would the one regime (myanmar) that truly is living the asean way 

its interesting to note that one of the sustainabiliut chalenges of designing a new win-win world trade routre is integrating a currency that apprecaies as the route's trades win-win; the biggest oberlooked lesson from the old silk road is spices and silks acted as such currencies; probaly the 2 sadeest things ever done in the name of te english langiage were decimating india's economy 1600-1946 - the great aha lesson gandhi from 1906 - and ordering china to make opium uk's patyment currency

the sad thing is that the first nation to grow largest USA by not needing to colonise anyone didnt undersatnd the tragedies of how mainlky the UK had decimnated so many eaetrn economies and friendly border relationshipsd; its not understasnd the cultural mediuatioins the region needs , and worse it own  excesses in cnsuming carbon and spending fifty of its taxpayers money on arms are not fit for being the 21st c most trueted youth-ssutaining economy

 download 2025 report - our 1984 book on why changing education would invole the most excitong times to be alive



Our 2024 (english), 2025 (american!) report written 1983 on whether millennials would be sustainable foresaw only way of making human sense out of spending 1000 times more on communictions tech 2016 vs 1946 was if place eladers valued job creating education more than economists

chnging education would mean everyone could be a tecaher or a stcnet individualy r communally from age 10 up

classrooms and standrd examinations would become dinosaurs

heres how; these are the most exciting times to be alive shares extract from macrae's 100 uera diary: 1/3 great 20th c revolutions -

40 years before end of world war 2 and the greatest rising expoential change humanity has ever raced around: what over 70 years has spun round 1000 times more commns tech, our diary of stories of education revolution begin

in 1906, when gandhi was thorwn out of a first class train in s africa due to wrong skin color

his aha moment - his profesison, barrister trained at bar of london, was the trap preventing his colonised compatriots from growing their lives; in gandhis mind before challenging rulers of the british empire directly he needed to demo a whole new education system:

'with montesorri he innovated village montessori

with friends he invented whole rural action learning communities called ashrams where at least for a few hours kids and parents worked alongside each other in the filds or the kitchens ..

as ahmedabad he started a new university

by 1925 onward (give or take a yera)he believed his education system was as good as he could do for livelihood creation- so with salt marches etc he started challenging the chief justice in mumbai who happened to be my grandad (diaspora scot kenneth kemp whose family included mumbai's first pharmacists - see kemps corner) ; grandads mediation over 20 years had its low spots including asking gandhi in a court as felow barristers is there anything i can do other than sentence you to prison- but anyhow grandad's last job was to write up the legalese of india's indpependence

what happened next was strange- the original concept free one india was chnged on demand by eg the aga khan to parttioning india; for reasons i dont fully understand gandhi's village schooling system did not improve much in most of india but for reasons i have spent 10 years studying with thousands of students: became the pride and joy of bangladesh when it finally won independence - see the 2nd great 20th c schooling system - brac 

 brac was developed by a former shell ceo who went to live in an area that had seen a million people killed by  cyclone and hd all infrastructure destroyed; what could he help survivors train each other to develop- this is how brac evolved bottoim up from disater relief to livelihood education , community run lheath services, community designed loans, redeigning whole market sectirs so that they were owned in trust for the pooerst

bracs forst schools were like gandhi's vilage schools but started with illiterate adults and added in ideas from paulo freire an other action learning connectirs; gradually the school age went down and some of the first vilage educated audlts becone teacers; over time brac built the kargest private education system , the world; nuber 1 cashelss banking sts=ystem but it was always about lievlihod training wherever ppossiblenin addition to passing relevant exams teh state set; brac was a 10 times less costly primary schooling system achieving first class examination results and with a ration of about 2 girls to 1 boy; brac invented secondar sholarships (probaly the earleist example of conditional cash transfer) and for those it couldnt get school funding for it trained to operate microfranchises- with secure markets for their produce


brac had started at about the same time that chna started opeing up- originally both rural natriosn needed the same innovations- huge increases in rural small farms of rice were needed to end deaths of millions by famine in both countries; bith countreius needed to develop last mile helath services; but china had an advantage; its diapiora were already the 3rd ridchest in the world - and prepared to invest in any amount of infrstructire as well as training public servants

so bangladesh continued to helpo girls lift up half the sky of a very densely poulated nation of just over 150 million today) starting from next to zero inward investment ; while china showed what a nation that invested in youth futures with almost unlimted funds could do with a nation of one fifth of the world people ise about 1.5 billion people tiday including quarter a billion girls under 30)

both countrues need each other knowhow if they are to help youth everywhere be the ssuatinability generation but move over to tsinghua the greatest public servnt university ever to understand how china leapfrogged several times

or check out exactly who brac started to parter as the digital age beckoned 



until 1976 or so china did not own one non-state busienss; the first wave of licenesed business neeeded to bring huge inward investments from chinese diapora; by the mid 1980s it was clear something needed to be done to modernise the state owned busienss; what hapened was tsinghu was turned into the greatest public servant university ; early alumni include xi jinping himself ; jinping left formal city schooling about age 15 to go and apprentice in poor rural vilages for fine yeras before coming up to tsinghua- in otherv words tysingua early students brought real world problems with them and helped build te curricual; so while we are alwys looking for other models we would say that in the pre-digtal age brac and tsinghua were the 2 heroic livelihood education systems especially for nations who belived girsl could grwo as much as boys



what happens -over to you-- how edutech and fintech come together

- when you look at our 2024vreport the west seems ever further away from breaking through the government monopolies of education; there is zero chance that such systems can help youth lead the livelihoods the sustainability generation most needs;

so we would strongly recomend all families to make sure their children friend chiense and bangaldeshi youth-
that way everyone can thrive by changing education - see summits on this at or help us blog at or or help us fnd partners in staging what needed to start uo in 1997 microeducationsummit not microcreditsummit

 Who are Millennials Goals for? #2030now
Since launch August 2014-  open learning campus being pioneered by world bank redoubles #2030now dream of friends of Jim Kim and Public Health heroes. Every millennial can question if job creating education is to be freed - and to include peer to peer sustainability mentors sans frontieres- then cases of innovation that millennials develop with such emerging tools as mpesa, nanocredit, kiva, puddle, crowdfunding, cashless banking, student competitions need to lead content development with open learning campuses like the world bank and khan academy - they do not need to feature the cases of the kind of educator who has caused the jobs crisis by being divorced from the new skills net generation youth need to collaborate around. Whose life experiences as maximum 9 minute action learning cases would you like to see youth viralising? Over 50 years as friends of Asian End Poverty Youth, our family's vote would be to start with sir fazle abed or if I could reach him jack ma. You vote to MOOCwho?   Link in to both open education cases and grassroots practice examples back from your future NOW. Additionally one would hope that if a family had a 100 dollar tablet directly beaming in job-developing ideas then such cases that the above could converge round might come near the top of the homepage of what elearning's age and job creating economic development humanly concerns most

anna I dont have an immediate answer to your question of how to design puddles so that hispanic girls can complete their nurse training courses (potentially a very interesting topic of central american development assistance too)

it would be interesting to understand if there are examples of growing the size and application area of puddles (eg the clean energy puddle) and how this meshes with the strategy of puddle or related crowdfunding/crowdlending epicentred around kiva in san francisco but potentially overlapping with nanocredit ways of starting up income generation given that better world wireless is also leading that out of san francisco with naila's expert advisory and relationships out of dc

some discussion piece that represents puddle (and perhaps kiva zip) direction is needed so that it can be shown around to millennial networks and their investors- otherwise all we can do is go at the pace at which job creating businesses develop - eg one the us end of sales networks of tebabu's ethiopiian produce is further developed , a puddle could be designed around getting sales force started with area franchises

various meetings in june suggested san francisco meetings to link in naila's connections with ideas like the above and more; hope this conversation could be part of that

....Replay launch of Young Africa Society: ... conference reports

                                                   DEAR FRIENDS,                            

The World Bank Group (WBG)-International Monteray Fund (IMF) Young African Society (YAS) is excited to invite you to the 1st African Youth Forum 2014 on July 31st, 2014. This year's theme, "Equipping and Inspiring the Next Generation for Productive Jobs" . Inspired by a report published by the World Bank Group in January 2014, on Youth employment in Sub-Saharan Africa, the WBG-IMF YAS has decided to organize its first African Youth Forum, to establish a platform where youth can actively participate in discussing, implementing and evaluating the development agenda in Africa. 

Please feel free to contact us to discuss issues pertinent to Africa’s development, at:

We look forward to welcoming you to the World Bank Group!


Yvonne Catherine Kirabo and Elikia Kamga Nenkam

The continent must move beyond commodities led growth to focus on human capital development internally. We believe that inclusive growth will only be achieved by equipping young people with the skills needed for a vibrant economy.

To empower Africa's young population to move forward, topics such as education, entrepreneurship and employment, health and good governance  must be addressed and knowledge must be shared.  

 Fall2014 dialogues on smallest banks people have ever communally designed to replicate as fast as the internet can connect -can you host a CC dialogue rsvp

how would you write  note inviting people to join in the world's first solar puddle?

here is my first draft- of course I would be delighted to see this invitation improved out of sight!

You're someone I trust.please consider  Joining world's first solar  puddle so we can start saving and borrowing together! Tech wizards from the kiva family have coded puddle so that any community where regulators permit (or practice network) can run their own small jobs investing bank. That makes the first solar puddle one of the most urgent trust searches I can imagine in 2014!

chris macrae

ps jean cluade is inventor of puddle - if banking for your community matters to you, best to find out more from him

ps2 what would be your one most valuable bank app- eg funding nurses loans? 


.The African Youth Forum 2014 will feature external and internal participants discussing Youth as an critical component of the Africa development agenda and specifically addressing the thematic areas as identified by the United Nations.
Our goal is to equip every attendee with new tools to achieve a positive vision for Africa. We invite you to start the process now by registering today and interacting with our online community...

have failed -in fact you have proven that how they justified their action namely development is not working -
 this is important not only for phd students who are working on these issues but for the agencies themselves
to have a mirror- you do it gently and radically at the same time - usually when become radical they lose gentleness
-  we need the mix the radical factor allows us to see the truth of the matter, the gentleness prevents us from

Pas Deja Vu - How can global edu summits change youth's world

Pas Deja Vu - How can global edu summits change youth's world???  Pas Deja Vu is motivated by upcoming edu summits in second half of 2013 - full networking-action details of these summits as they emerge will be noted at the above link of Norman Macrae Youth Foundation. Over the 41 years that my father first started debating the net generation impacts of Entrepreneurial Revolution in The Economist, two of education's most promising possibilities have been experienced by our circles in the last year:


the possibility that khan-academy type labs could beam out 9 minute training modules to millions of youth from wherever bottom up ngos have the most urgent job crating solutions for youth to replicate

How open education , open society and open economics all came together in a recent party hosted By George Soros at his central european university in Budapest and guested by such bottom up worldwide practice leaders as Sir Fazle Abed of BRAC and Paul Farmer of partners in Health

These are 2 of the Pas Deja Vus that Norman Macrae Foundation friends will love to discuss at every global education summit - what pas deja vu's are  you most excited to discuss on empowering youth through open worldwide education?

Discussion of Winter 012/013 - could some nations economies would grow faster if MBAs (and rating agencies) were banned from ruling over anything that matered to youth's futures? The Economist




 If schooling systems were designed to serve children then any 11 year old graduating with the primary skills of reading, writing, arithmetic and cross-cultural self-confidence would be invited to go online to join in a worldwide debate. The common text of the debate would be the last 3 pages of Keynes Genaral Theory - how is the world ruled by and for whom? Keynes clarified ecoeomics principle 101 - a place can only grow if its capital, politiciams and media are designed round investing in next generation's productivity. Put very simply economists design or destroy the futures youth (and the communities that can nurture them) need most around every market's purpose. A  tipping point is reached where destruction becomes irreversible without starting all over again. History can be interpreted in this way. Whole civilisations lost IT for many generationsPro-Youth Economics 2.1. Keynes core text was written in the 1930s. Pretty soon a second debate started to be futurised by the smartest mathematicians such as Einstein and Von Neumann inspired by that era's most moral mediators such as Gandhi. What happens when man's technology make peoples borderless - ie more connected than geographically separated in how productively and sustainably our lifetimes are spent. Would it be the case that the way the world was ruled would explain the sustainability exponentials not only of separate nations but of the whole human race? The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant started engaging leaders in this WholePlanet debate in the early 1970s with the tag name entrepreneurial revolution. By 1984 his future history mapped what changes would need to be mediated in ruling the 21st century in opposite ways round from decisions that had spiralled with the advent of tv mass media- the dominating  change in the way that peoples and their rulers communicated in the second half of the 20th century. His book raised such debates as how the coming net generation would need to co-create 3 billion new jobs and co-produce the most excitingly human goals our race had ever explored. 2010s would be the most exciting decade - by this time we would need to have removed all compound risks of being ruled in ways that destroyed worldwide youth's futures. Welcome to the reason why microeducationsummit is now integral to connecting the future of everyone ...

 Why Education matters most of  all to The Economist's fans of Entrepreneurial Revolution

2012: 40 years ago, dad (Norman Macrae) and I saw 500 youth sharing knowledge round a digital network. Dad changed all his journalism around the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution - key questions how do we invest in net generation as worldwide youth's most productuve time and what next 3 billion jobs will we need to co-create with the new collaboration technology. In media terms, the most valuable question becomes can we make the internet smart in every way mass media dumbed down?

When it comes to education our lens is of parents, family explorers not professionals. We are sad that the most passionate educators we have found in 40 years of interviewing entrepreneurs in job creating education often fall through the top down frameworks that governments produce and over-professionanlism stanadardises beyond practice grounded in community's real needs.

 In calling for an urgent microeducation summit- issue 1 is please do lifetime action debriefs with passionate educators who are in their last 3 years of active contribution - such as sir fazle abed BRAC, Jagdish Gandhi CMS Lucknow, Gordon Dryden thelearningweb of  New Zealand and China. Such debriefs would ask : what are knowns/unknowns in your experience across whole chian of education leading to job-ready lifetimes and youth as collaboration entrepreneurs. Who are the people relationsips that you spend most time on connecting? How can we ensure open education resources exist round everything you uniquely know

we also call for a bottom up blueprint for the future education youth needs to joyfully elad productuve lifetimes - on which everything else done in education can be superimposed (zoom in and out of). While far from perfect - the frame that our journalists currently share to ensure we are cataloguing job-creating education is on right

..USA the most scary edu system of all

i got a first with distinction in maths back in 1972- when i look through 8th to 12th grader maths book- I see a syllabus structured to destroy the mathematical ability that humans have that computers never will - recursiveness as valued by turing depends on learning through every error before being examined- something that continuous testing on lazy government-run multi-choice questions cannot empower youth to do.It takes some kind of command-and-control evil worse than anything that james bond confonted to be in charge of designing us maths schools tests- if you know who i should write to about this extreme folly - please tell me -ted videos that more politely make this point include 1 2.

comments - why educators need to read ONLY YOUTH CAN SAVE WORLDWIDE ECONOMY  writes: Dad was menoired by Keynes that economists design or destroy the futures that peoples need most. Progess of out human lot need the purpose of education maximising worldwide youth's working lifetimes- something that 2010s million times more collaboration technolgy than 1960s race to moon seemingly supports. So why are so many youth out of work?- because macroeconomists have messed up how places invest in youth's futures productivities. Its absolutely vital that educators don't mess up too- how can we help youth and you microeducationsummit?
Friends of The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant Norman Macrae have been accelerating our searching for pro-youth education systems since his 1984 book -the first to map how to value the net generation's unprecedented opportunities to collaborate around knowlhow that multiplies value in use involving opposite economic system designs than scarcity embedded in consuming up things. This also mapped how and why the first net generation needed to co-create 3 billion new jobs- a billion green, a billion tech, and a billion by selecting education systems designed to maximse youth's entrepreneurial talents
rsvp if you would like to help link together the world's first microeducationsummit- we feel that johannesburg could be the best place for the first summit as nowhere has tried harder to be a world trade leader in knowledge of education designed to develp youth entrepreneurs - the free university model also makes sure this is the most economic university system. Adam Smith would doubly applaud- he warned that governments allowing only one type of institution to design examines and issue degrees was an idea full of risk, especially in fast changing times.

dream list of first 20 lead practitioners of microeducation summit


example nomination craig barrett on list



huff post article on craig's retirement job is to reform arizona schools system  (not quoted is his work on ethical leadership curriculum at thunderbird let alone his infleunce in shaping the purpose of silicon chips at intel)


Craig Barrett has expressed strong opinions on Arizona's education system.

In 2011, Barrett, former chief executive of Intel, told lawmakers and business leaders that Arizona would not be on Intel's list of top 10 choices if his former company was looking to build a new operation.

Later in the year, Barrett said during an interview he would change the process of educating and evaluating teachers, paying teachers according to their performance and area of expertise.

Barrett was appointed last year by Gov. Jan Brewer as chairman of the Arizona Ready Education Council, a group created by Brewer to advise her on education issues.

The former businessman and current charter-school executive hosted a forum Tuesday with a group of teachers, principals and other administrators from the Vail School District.

The forum was held at Andrada Polytechnic High School in the Vail district.

Barrett came to Tucson to discuss the newly implemented Common Core Standards, which are new standards for English and math achievement, and to receive feedback from teachers and administrators regarding other issues such as teacher evaluations and education funding.

He said the standards were perhaps "the biggest transformation of K-12 education" in Arizona history.

After the forum, Barrett discussed the new standards, his ideas for teacher evaluations and other topics during with the Star.

Question: You mentioned this is the biggest transformation in history. Can you go into more detail about why that is?

Answer: "If you just step back a bit and you compare kids in Arizona, or kids in the United States in general, to their international peers, you find that the United States kids do not do particularly well.

We're kind of mediocre in reading, we're below average in mathematics and science.

So the Common Core is taking an international benchmark of where U.S. kids need to be in order to be competitive in the world and then adjusting our curriculum to that level.

The implementation of that internationally benchmarked curriculum is a big change because you have to upgrade the curriculum and you have to do professional training of the teachers to be able to handle that curriculum. So it's a pretty massive change."

Q: How do you plan on achieving the goals of the Arizona Ready Council to improve student achievement.

A: Barrett said the council expects the implementation of the Common Core Standards, as well as an increased emphasis on career and technical Education, to help the agency reach its goals.

"If you talk to most kids and why they drop out of school, what you hear is 'I got behind' or 'I wasn't interested' or 'My friends didn't go to school so I didn't see the relevance.'

But there are some great programs. (Andrada) is a high school that worries about continuing technical education.

The relevancy of what goes in this school is perhaps a lot higher than just a classroom environment.

A lot of career and technical education emphasis makes school more relevant to kids. If a kid says, "I want to be an auto mechanic, so what do I need school for?" Then you can tell them, "If you want to be an auto mechanic, you have to know computers and you have to know math and science because you can't repair an engine in a BMW unless you know all that stuff."

So if you make the school more relevant to the child then there's a higher probability that the child will stay in school.

Q. Can you discuss performance-based teacher evaluations and why you support it?

A: The state has already said that a certain fraction of a teacher's salary increase should be based on performance and performance should be "how do the kids do under that teacher?"

It's very easy to say you should have a merit-based or performance-based model. It's a little bit tougher to do it because you have to have the information technology infrastructure to actually measure how much the kid knows when they come in the classroom and how much they know when they leave the classroom, which is the teacher's contribution.

One of our roles is to work with the Arizona Department of Education to make sure you have a 21st century IT model, which allows you to track kids and how much kids are learning, and relate that back to teacher performance.

The biggest objection you hear to putting a performance-based model in place from a teacher perspective is a teacher can say "Hey, when I got these kids, they were not at grade level. So how do you expect me to make up for their prior deficiencies and get them up to grade-level in my grade if I can't control when they're coming into my classroom?"

So if you can monitor how much they know when they're coming into the classroom and how much they know when they go out, the teacher can get them, at least, one year advanced. Then the teacher's doing their job.

leslie to try and answer your question on why i commend that any favorite yunus student state needs to include making open tech links wherever life-shaping knowledge networks can in the global market of student competitions - and the future of job creating educational systems - Yunus student competition network has deepest permissions into society but to fulfil his dreams needs all the help in youth's world to partner open tech  -

also, i find it off-brand that yunus after 16 years of experimenting with mobiles in village has discovered nurses networks are the breakthrough to opentech around but that idea isnt yet communicated front and centre of every yunus competition - now that yunus is glasgow chancellor of the first uni partner in nursing colleges stakes are doubled up unless we understand why zasheem and my father backed nursing college model 2008 -something us scottish eonomists hope zasheem and bhuiyan will straighten out in time to celebrate a wave of girl empowerment events in 2013, 2014 
Joi Ito who is japanese head of MIT media lab - therefore at MIT one of the 3 most connected people of open tech youth competitions is also on board of Knight who now seems to be sharing media youth entreprenurshipprogram  at chapel hill- if my father is correct about Asian Pacific www century studies in The Economist since 1975 , Japan can be  culturally most able to support yunus while bangladesh goes through its civil and village revolution which is extremely dangerous in 2013; JOi's main hobby is scuba diving as is bbc's nature broadcaster and friend of yunus green energy paul rose who celebrated yunus 69th birthday wishes with yunus - the forerunner to social business day; britains leaders of microenergy awards connect philanthropy, royals, bbc and shareholders of The Economist and will try to host a spring 2013 event with yunus in dhaka while safe to do so

a lot of things that have happened around me the last few months which converge on this question


the latest on friday i was at a usaid conference in dc celebrating literacy day- it turned out to reveal how they are reviewing the whole edu chain but in a very top down way- the very worst of obama-academic rather than what he promised to yes you can linkiin round youth


the first thing I almost wanted to cry out was go and interview 3 lifelong educators who are in their last years

1 sir fazle abed - i would be surprsied if there is any network that knows -and wants to share more practices - more about the grand challenge of literacy than brac and sir fazle- there was a time when microcreditsummit wanted to map all the knowledge of 3 orgs one of which was brac


jagdish gandhi at

gordon dryden at who isnt just transforming new zealand education but has 10 million chinese families following him too



at the other end from literacy there is jobs- we know that only about 1 % of future jobs are going to come from being examined and waiting for a big employer to offer you a job in spite of a monopply university system built around olnly certifying youth for being examined to death by such destructive system designers as mba professors- whose maths is literally the least sustainable in the world


free universitues are one breakthrough; job competitions universities are another; getting back to almost free apprenticeships for vital services like nursing is another


in the middle of all this is the web - which means as we clearly mapped in 1984 that students now need to practice convening debates and trying out team projects and celebrating peer to peer and open education resources


in the most non-economic way imaginable: the education bubble is bigger than the banking bubble -or indeed the same bubble of western tv-led government that has become 180 degrees the opposite of serving the public


moreover I do not know of one microcredit that interests me that wasnt about mother-members wanting to invest in their next generation's productivity- ie education was the purpose of sustainable microcredits as much as anything else - why didnt we embrace that as mobiles started connecting village hubs in 1996!


so in september I am spendinng a week at paris millennium goals summit and a week going round the states in the yunus and youth job competitions network


it would be a pity not to find who wants to co-develop microeducaion summit now

To start, select some text from the transcript

South Africa today is a sea of youth with no direction, no guidance. These kids roam about the townships. They grow up in shacks in squatter camps.

Those kids, they don't have educated parents, and they grow up and their mothers are not working. They don't have anybody to look up to.

In the township, in actual fact, being a failure is accepted. Nobody is going to punish you for that, nobody is going to tell you to dream big, nobody is going to tell you anything.

So it's actually a huge challenge that we're facing in this country, which is to try to pull the youth back.

Traditionally, people have always looked at Africa as a basket case and they have said, Africans are not able to do it for themselves. So when they are sick, we send medicines.
