- young africa invites netgen: co-create 3 billion jobs entrepreneurial revolution's

Washington United States

i would strongly recommend african and youth pioneers of job creating economics consider joining forces with summit announced as wise@accra may 2018 - as you may know, wise is the summit network that has awarded the education laureates since 2011; its original laureate whom many of us are alumni of : sir fazle abed of - as far as i can see brac is the only bangladesh based microecredit network which has sustained partnership impacts in african countries; sir fazle was also celebrated by george soros as his overall open society laureate during the first 20 years of that network- i believe ysi and new economics networking is largely funded by george soros'

the wise suumit in accra will be hosted by the 2017 wise laureate patrick founder of ashesi university - a model being benchmarked by at least 10 african countries designed round universityes for disadvantaged students

also at wise was the president of ghana; wise's other big summit of 2018 has been announced to be at UN general assemby sept 2018; ghanas president is one of 15 eminent people including jack ma ( whose good news we study at ) advising un leader guterres- a special focus of the wiase@Un summit will be education for refugees 

there were only a few young africans among the 2000 delegates to wise in qatar earlier this month but these included the liberian who convened the youth summit last year - write me if you would like me to put you tooch with him or have questions you prefer to detail on what the world would miss without wise's belief that education for jobs is the core all people growing economies the 21st c needs to sustain; there is a very close framework of economic valuation between wise and the win-win partnerships that china seeks ; this is actually the number 1 curriculum that interests me education belt road so to speak

dear raphael at Kenya Youth Congress can I suggest that you ring up jamii bora head office ask for ingrid's personal assistant and ask her to give message " chris macrae thinks it would be good idea if ingrid or someone from her office meets you so that you can 1) tell her about your mission, 2) tell her about youth summit at world bank and all the other events you were kenya's youth entrepreneur/governance ambassador to last week":
the point is that ingrid knows me well  but I dont have easy ways of communicating with her from usa

chris ps  Raphael if any on your network can connect with julian kyula's nanocredit network that would be a giant leap forward in my opinion

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.  
.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...

Ethiopia is DC's and MD's  most vibrant millennial african diaspora. invites all diaspora to share end to end value chain models pioneering Benefit Corp partnerships in this regard; blessed coffee and rose value chain models out of Ethiopia are already world changers for huge cooperatives of small farmholders. Noah Samara, an Ethiopian MD-American launched Africa's first satellite and owns the continent-wide frequency for elearning see yazmi and millennial groups linked in eg AFRICATIP during DC's August 2014 celebrations of African millennials' goals.

South Africa (land of Mandela and inspiration of Gandhi's Satyagraha) leads world in redesigning job creating schooling for 14 million children. Started 1999 , Taddy Blecher partners include Branson Mandela elders, Google Africa,  Maharishi Institutes.summary of maharishi uni.doc, 556 KB  

South Africans are now the first to enjoy such previously missing curricula from 3rd grade as: empowerment, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, coding. Missing processes include teen apprenticeship, P2P learning, lifelong learning for small business academies. Links with lead Gandhi educators in India offer breakthroughs in adult reading literacy

George Soros began his journey as probably world's first open billanthropist in South Africa 1978. Note his invitations to millennial professionals: open society, ineteconomics networks. Keynsians at The Economist coined demand for Entrepreneurial Revolution of pro-youth economics in 1968 survey of South Africa's future.

Youth African Society at World Bank has resources and rational optimism to linkin all young professional networks concerned with job creation Africa. These resources include:

Kenyans have led world in open tech youth wizardry Ushahidi, IHUB, Mpesa, Nanocredit, Jamii Bora banking for orphans and ending slums. Through first ladies of women4empowerment and MIT media labs they have connected partnerships with the world's most resourced technologists and open tech wizards. Additionally Ibrahim foundation prizes public leaders young african nations can trust most; Crowdfunding (eg Kiva) and Patient capital networks (eg Acumen) strong links with Kenya


Missing IN DC 2? - Movement to Free Nursing Colleges and telemedicine- However personal conversation with Paul Farmer suggests Haiti's training hospital will be his test lab for this; PIH connections with Africa are renowned in redesigning helatcare for Rwanda and for the original value chain intervention with Big Pharma regarding HIV drug innovation. IN USA, Arkansas was main state investment in community broadband testing of telemedicine - see FCC

African Partnerships with Bangladeshi's original microcredit-microeducation networks have many of the most scaled projects in africa regarding 1 girl apprenticeship networks, 2 ultra poor movements, 3 transferring crop science knowhow to include small producers. See eg BRAC and mastercardfoundation - Uganda; BRAC and Gates Foundation Tanzania. BRAC is world's largest and most collaborative ngo because Sir Fazle Abed regards its core as open job creating education- first WISE education laureate, 20th George Soros Open Society Laureate. Sir Fazle is committed to helping MOOC and Khan Academy type platforms

Women4Empowerment and Fashion4Development partnerships are inspired by African innovation networks:

*Kenya's Nanocredit

*ITU Geneva currently run by Mali technolgist

Various other UN networks particularly those impacted by billion dollar change catalyst of Ted Turner family

Many first ladies across Africa & mobile telecom owners

Furthermore there are lead examples of BlackAmerican superstars leading change in cost of media in freeing life-saving grassroots solutions networks. And Sino-African basketball al stars for education link through Brookings and the HBUC funding agency Thurgood Marshall

Youth Creative Lab is an idea inspired by Dr Yunus and 10000 Youth Ambassadors starting from his 69th birthday party in Dhaka in June 2009. Opposite to the trillion dollars a year spent by ad agencies to hollow out local jobs replication, it provides space for youth to celebrate 1000 most exciting jobs concepts- many of which need to customse multi-win Private Public Mobile partnership models to scale. NB identifying journalists and media experts passionate about jobs responsibility is opposite process to most PR lobbies and much NGO fund-raising. Also SWOT the difference if the net generation succeeds in designing internet as smartest open education media for sustaining millions of global villages and not an adjunct to the ways that tv advertising dumbed down and added to poverty by exponentially increasing costs to middle men. While Dr Yunus has been trying to embed YCL in the last 3 Nobel peace laureate summits (Warsaw 2013, Cape Town 2014, Atlanta 2015, a problem is that many of the regional elders no longer have health to ensure knowhow survives them - note Mandela's passing, Gorbachev has was not well enough to lead his east Europe conference. Nonetheless time has come for youth to map how peaceful societies through time exponentially generate strong economies not ice versa. Yunus also invites youth to viralise impossible become possible postcards to the future- see typical design case: free nursing college.

welcome to informal attempts to map youthworldbanking the millennials goals and investments way ahead -provided economist see their number 1 role the way keynes did - ie creating future of nextgen jobs while ending poverty’s broken historical and geopolitical systems wherever community is unsustainable

AFAM1 on june 21 ethiopians (largest african diaspora around dc) are hosting a value chain development summit aimed at benchmarking how little even obama usaid has moved towards designing value chains to sustain poorest african agriculture producers -please say if you can come or would like to know the organiser


AFAM2 these women4empowerment videos 1 2 3  linked by Naila the first lady to direct grameen phone and now living in our region show why its now time to unite all superstars to change fashion industries and promote youth voices. Understanding whoch telcoms billionnaires really want to give back by promoting new levels of leadership transparency can be critica- follow eg ibrahim foundation in valuing national leaders and how friends of ibrahim have extended this to africa24tv's search for diferent sectir eladers africans can trust most


AFAM3 Re Brookings Yao Ming Chinese-African American exchanges: I would love to know eg what past commissioner of nba thinks of them - and whether hbu youth see this as a defining opportunity to join in. Also on the theme of uniting millennial movements world bank Jim Kim and UN ban ki-moon ended the spring series of millennials meetings with the invitation to any millennial to pitch before next springs world bank summits- how are we going to converge hbu students participation in this once in a lifetime DC offer


AFAM4 what these videos dont yet show  (but naila can b. rief you on) is how extreme mobile innovations originated in kenya  (such as nanocredit recipient of the IBM award of year) now offer best in world opportunities to use mobile to end digital divides- already there is an issue in usa of who would do most good with a million phone give away - I wonder whether your hbu student competition pitches would be different if that freedom was known as a currently open- there's also a very exciting opportunity for anyone to start up savings and loans circles that anna can tell you about -perhaps that would change the feasibility of that marvelous student pitch at atlanta last year of how rural colleges could start up credit unions. Kenya remains the greatest youth women world trade innovation epicentre ; Jamii Bora, ILAB, Crowdmap, Mpesa, Nanocredit to name but 5


AFAM5 more generally the calendar up to end 2015 seems to me to be the last deadline for all the potential possibilities for black youth top lead community generation that 8 years of obama could have built on; vivienne's film of obama's mama as a world leading networker of  women end poverty premieres end may in seattle


AFAM6 The 16 year open education partnership out of south africa to find and free missing job creating curriculum of entrepreneurship and empowerment led by Taddy Blecher and linking in such as Branson, Mandela Elders and Google starts a 6 weeks usa tour in late May


AFAM7 I trust that atlanta november 2015 will serve to have a full and open inquest or celebration of this issue-ultimately its over to you to tell me if there is any way I can mediate between your ways of networking through atlanta for the benefit of hbus as the others connected around yunus, ted turner, luther kings, jimmy carter, the mayor etc

Best News of 2013 from our diaries of June 2013: African Development Bank and Yunus :  the AfDB along with Prof Yunus's organisation, Yunus Social Business, have launched the Holistic Social Business Movement in Africa (HSBM) programme which includes pilot projects in Tunisia and Uganda. This programme will be implemented in two phases that include awareness raising and capacity building programmes for the stakeholders in Social Business, and with the implementation of social business incubation funds. In both these countries an incubation company named as Yunus Social Business Tunisia (and Uganda) will be set up, and simultaneously a "Social Business Fund" will be established in each country. The HSBM is funded by the Japan government and co-financed by the AfDB. In the second round, social business initiatives will also be extended in Egypt, Tanzania, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Togo and Morocco.

.The Economist Debate March 2013 The moderator's opening remarks Mar 12th 2013 | Oliver August 

Sub-Saharan Africa has made huge leaps in the last decade. Malaria deaths in some of the worst-affected countries have declined by 30% and HIV infections by up to 74%. Life expectancy across Africa has increased by about 10% and child mortality rates in most countries have been falling steeply. A booming economy has made a big difference. Real income per person has increased by more than 30%, whereas in the previous 20 years it shrank by nearly 10%. Africa is the world's fastest-growing continent just now. Over the next decade its GDP is expected to rise by an average of 6% a year, not least thanks to foreign direct investment, which has risen from $15 billion in 2002 to $37 billion in 2006 and $46 billion in 2012.

But Africa has seen booms before, only to crash-land. Violence is still common in some parts of the continent. Corruption has not gone away and in some cases has actually increased thanks to growing commodities revenues. Proper governance could take care of this but all too often it is missing. Too much hype surrounds the rise of Africa. Boosters proclaim an "African century" and talk of "the China of tomorrow" or "a new India". Sceptics retort that Africa has seen false dawns before. They fear that foreign investors will exploit locals and that the continent will be "not lifted but looted".

Over the next two weeks we'll be debating the question: "How real is the rise of Africa?" Proposing is Wolfgang Fengler, the lead economist in the Nairobi office of the World Bank, its largest on the continent. Opposing is Rick Rowden, a development consultant who has worked as an adviser for the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva and as a senior policy analyst for ActionAid, an NGO.

During their debate they are likely to touch on the role that industry will play in Africa over the coming years, how population growth is going to affect development and what part new international partners like China, India and Brazil may be expected to take. The debate will focus on the future as much as on the present. That Africa has changed in the last decade is hard to dispute, but how durable is this change?

Employment and equality are likely to be the indicators that count most. For change in Africa to become permanent, many more residents would have to earn a decent income and wealth could no longer creamed off by elites to the extent that it is now. To find out how likely that is, let's turn to our experts....

Anne Kamau talks to experts from five leading think tanks in Kenya, Senegal, South Africa, Nigeria and Uganda, asking them what they see as the major challenges facing their respective countries in the year ahead and how those issues will likely affect relations with the United States and the welfare of their citizens.

jamii bora google zeitgist

• Z2010
 From Philipinnes journalists
 In an internet report dated July 16, 2009 submitted by Danielle Dumm, he said: “Armed with hand-held POS (Point of Service) devices, Jamii Bora’s staff can connect clients to services at branch locations and in the field. Each member of Jamii Bora is issued an identity card embedded with a biometric reading of their fingerprint. To deposit or withdraw funds, Jamii Bora staff simply swipe the biometric card on the POS, open the member’s account and record the transaction. To confirm and authorize the transaction, the Jamii Bora member must press their thumb to the POS machine and a receipt is printed for the member’s records. All POS transactions are logged by a central server and reconciliation takes place at the close of each and every business day.

This system is more high-tech than that of many commercial banks around the world, and yet, it is brilliantly simple and perfectly suited to the needs of Jamii Bora and its members. There is no need to remember pin numbers or be fully literate. The POS model also allows for real-time transaction processing and overall cost-savings, both of which are pivotal to the organization achieving financial sustainability and growth.

Hi Nii -if only we could linkin mutual friends  AN EK GA HG JR JT KJ LHT LW MG NM PP SV TR




How about starting series of in DC ..   to energise optimistic connecting people as knowledge-action  workers who want to be collaboration entrepreneurs (a species my dad  diarised over 40 years at The Economist.   Back in 1984 as first journalists of the internet, dad and I mapped how exciting 2010s can be as worldentrepreneur networks double focused knowledge-sharing annually around life-shaping goals


I am a system researcher and designer which means I am not a practice expert in any of the most vital human goals (whose determination by 2020 can make 2010s netgens "most exciting decade"  Yunus 2050 person bookclub ) Here are a few ideas (and people) in case some of these are a best first focus for a coffee debate (love to start with what you want to do, but these are new year action contexts my mind is mapping and which $300000 of social business loans from my father's  estate has started to structure with some advice fro muhammad yunus and microcreditsummit and social business summit leaders and


0 Leadership Quests : eg by writing cheeky letters round DC to whomever I hear to have new funds (eg shareout of G20's half billion fund) to social (busieness ) entrpreneurs :  ask to partner in sharing open knowledge with deep practice networks my friends or I have inspected on the ground 


1 Are you an Editorial Guides to African Century

I would like to see a sub-editorial board  "African Century" of the new journal of social business (more in footnote) my dad's estate has started with a social busiess loan under the expert stewardship of muhammad yunus 3 partners in scotland - 2 univesrities and the centre for development scotland a charity that a 30 year long frind and compatriot of dr yunus started about 15 years ago. My last full year in Lodon was 2005 where I was delegated to atend the main make poverty history meetings and the African commission report was one of the main suposed contexts. I discovered to my chagrin that this was a movement dominated by top-down NGOs and that they were part of the problem. Ever since I have been trying to invest in bottom-up connections and open spaces. For example I made loans to 24 weeks of open space in london summer 2007 where I thought africa networks would linkin. Instead I learnt from Lesley Williams that grassroots African networks wanted to make a fresh start and would not trust people like me directly. Net-Net:  the 2 people who are already invited to form the African Century sub-board are Lesley Williams and Ingrid Munro. I suggest they might also choose someone from

  •  - mainly a malawi-leading microcredit funded as a SB out of london but with links into MIT, and which has sent delegates both to my dad's life remebrance partsy at The Economist and yunus 69th borthdyday wishes dialogue.
  • The montfort plan - a trilogy of books of a Georgetown-Spaniard whose serach began with 100 interview of microfinance economists on ideas to move part of the world bank's headquarters to sub-saharan africa.

If 1 interests you its mainly a case of checking that what you want to connect with african century has enough win-wins with Lesley and more widely her connections with other hub leaders of which the two I know are: wordlwide founder Jonathan and DC mobiliser Alex



A pattern i want to explore is what the net generation can learn from the first 40 years of the grassroots economics nation of Bangladesh - see consider bangladesh attached; and what African world in particular can learn from Kenya. To advance this pattern I wish to invest in publication of a Consider Kenya leaflet similar to the consider Bangaldesh one ; and then twin leaflets between any other african country and kenya. Ultimately I will try to get out of teh way of such a publication series (so that it is led out of africa with eg Leseyian values) but I do want to hit certain magic moments when these consider african century elaflets can be viralised


2A when yunus testifies to us congress as genius economist - something (as announced in consider bangladesh) that will happen in 2011 peobaly late spring ; 2b microcreditsummmit nov 2011 with queen sofia continuing her africa and s.hemisphere focus on knowledge-doubling annually (dare britain join in summer 2012 as swansong to our dear queen of commonwealth.. )


2B its my belief that the best thing out of usa for the world : when post-presidency obama turns worldwide presidential summit of entrepreneurship to something much more grassrooted than the clinton global initiative; demonstrate kenya as a grassroots partners laboratory to everything hi-tech partners can mobilise the same way yunus is forming sustainability world trades with bangladesh-  I am interested in connecting below the radar any networks that might empower obama towards such a future; and see the publishing genre of Consider African nations racing to join in African Century as a catalytic mecahnism integrated by the-hub and sub-networks and emerging partners in peoples tv  

 Nearly Done : I am old enough to remember the marketing profession when the prime duty of te marketer was to throw up several concepts that entrepreneurs could test small and see which one many different constituencies grabbed at the same time as a multi-win way of progressing the biggest goals we could dream of realising with all tye urgency that individual lifetime missions can focus




PS two spaces where I multiply more collaboration entrepreneur projects  are :   (eg how can we start connecting what monica yunus artist peace corps  with partnerships out of africa)
