My dream for Africa in the context of a rapidly urbanizing world, is to see some young men and women decide to stay on farms because they 'want to' spend their lives producing quality food for the local, regional and global consumers. My hope is that the nightmare of African youths locked in farming not by choice but by a fate of an HCD gap will end. My dream is of young Africans who choose to take to the metropolis and build or help build technologies that solve human challenges such as poor access to health services. I dream of young men and women who will choose to code until until they make doing business easier for their fellow farmers through building systems that reduce supply chain inefficiencies in Africa and connect Africa to the rest of the world.
On the belief system as part of HCD, the African society has a huge role to play. Noone can do this for us, we have to do this for ourselves. I dream of the young African professional who chooses to say NO to corruption and prioritizes creating value in service. This is the basic ethic of business... we cannot thrive sustainably without it. Money will always follow value. I dream of the African youth who will choose hospitality before pride and make Africa the warmest and safest destination.
Though, all these be dreams for now, I know all this is possible. It is possible when I wake up to do it and inspire you to do it. And when you do it and inspire one more; everyday we will inspire more young men and women to build the 'Africa I dream of everyday.'
