7:30 am
captain and setting sail to discover route. the world famous c. voyager of ferdinand of magellan. i'd rather erase linked to military interests, erase links to political and military. christie literacy linked to men, financial interests, and adventure full of hardships, dangers and death. 3 years and that will change the world forever. my jillions journey around the world starts september 7th on d. w. ah. hi there. welcome to the 7 to 7 percent assured are let's africa. majority the youth. talk about things that are important to us. i am michael o t your host for today. so yes was coming up. do you have the right opportunities to compete for the rest of
7:31 am
the world? that's what we asked young people in several young. in gunners, capital, our crime. we meet a young innovator champion in an e bible revolution. and in my city, we explore burn these economic capital. would you bureau with let's start off today's sure with a talk around the continent to be successful at anything. you need mentors. some one who has done it before and continue the rooks in the next story, i bring you a skitta magician and a tick tock when they tell us who is passed them. i mean, i really look up to a go, you know, if you had a group called pulling cello, i think it's because of their hydroxy puts towards getting
7:32 am
a lions and how she asked and how she is able to evolve into different characters. that is amazing. and she has contributed into the puzzle that i am today. i try to follow him by doing what she does concentrating way and being my mice cubes and also researching on my carter before i cause sad or rather being evolving into my car in a nuclear. busy really i'm ready for 342 quarter yang, all creaking yo just liggins, like i did before. they do an m m m. i do show an ideal world. so i think my them to study being c o e, they're not fully. they're dial along with what the latest, if you know, you wholesale i am,
7:33 am
i do need usually the unique lassi small to do so at the moment i'll say a mouth still is an american skateboarder, and i think o, i inspires me is because he's regular skateboarding an array like his dowdy skates . i he normally doing skates, he normally gets all the checks and i like put that in to ask a body where like murder and get a check. i like a non just quit on karen trying. i want to get the checks or ever credit will ever stop. try my trick. well, crossed to you nelson. i can't begin to attempt any of those tricks,
7:34 am
but it's great to see all of you guys do what you love. and hopefully more people get to live your best lives. because we are in a global world where you and i have to compete with young people are age in germany and china. but do you feel prepared to compete? that is what my colleague david kamani asked young sewell unions in this we st. pete. yes, we're the see. ah, hello and welcome to the 77 percent. were here at the prince of will school in free town, the capital of cyril yawn. and in this country, 8 out of every 10 people is under the age of 35. i had to look that number up again because it's unbelievable. 80 percent of the population are within the 77 percent. but the question we want to ask today is, is the government doing enough to not just empower this youth, but also make them competitive globally? and i want to begin with harder because you've had the opportunity to not to study
7:35 am
abroad, but also have an enterprise here. so perhaps you can give me based on your experience . do you think that the youth in this country have been enabled or empowered enough to basically be part of the global community? well, as of a few months ago, there were only 3 disciplines in sierra leone when you go to high school. so there's the arts, the commercial and science. so i ended up in a science because every smart person is supposed to be a doctor. and most of the things were, were taught in school. we're not really practical, it was all theory. and i really struggle with this when i got a scholarship to study in norway in 2015 i to classes like chemistry and biology. and in all the experiments which were very practical, i was really struggling and my grades were not reflecting on the education system that i received in sierra leone. let me go to k is daniel, because we're talking about some of the emits that come about, particularly after graduating, say university. and i know finances was one of the key ones for you. is it normal,
7:36 am
or is it a normal occurrence for young people yet to stop their tertiary education because they simply no bus or is no school fees? i got my gum in 2016. what the days? russell bowed. finacialow for me to follow my the kitchen. so i decided to move and sen wishes to your new telecom nutrition as a suit agent for me, just to support medication. and i was walking, go 4 by 6 is that it was so put a drag go with. all right, so let me speak to dr. comma here for a 2nd because she is the director of research if i'm not mistaken, of for delivery and delivery and the ministry of finance. so it sounds to me like, you know, the government has a great initiative in place, which is free primary education rather free education for all. but then after that, what next? the thing is. yes. 4 years we've been focused on traditional education. that's the
7:37 am
reality. but now we're transitioning unseen the awareness and how people approach technical vocational training and the need for end up, you know, sheep and how he doesn't need to be just one second or you half in one calling to serve. you can serve in multiple ways. you can be a doctor and still be an entrepreneur, you can pick it up, you know, and an advocate. so having that platform or crating, those systems in which of them are these, they thought and ideas, know they lobby and create. that is just that we need to scale up and find ways to accelerate the creation of those to paste. all right, do you think that the quality of education, what is being taught the back here is enough? i always say one thing. i am personally not the free kind of person, and that's my personal opinion because i, you don't think education should be 5 felt she'll be accessible and affordable for everyone. because when it's free right now, only to poor people can send your kids to like goldman school. i want to be involved in sierra leone, where local trader and the minister can send your kids to the same school because they can afford it. i was part of the for education system. when i was in secondary
7:38 am
school, my school fees was 60000 leon's, i got it every, i was reimbursed me for 45000 loans. but my textbooks were up to a 1000000 and that my parents found had to, you know, afoot, like daniel said he, he couldn't get to college. and honestly it, it's sad because he was smart and he is still smart. but how many of daniels are out there? how many of daniels don't have the privilege to be on tv? let me come back to your doctor because we are hearing that there is a disconnect. i mean, surely the policy that you're creating behind closed doors sound wonderful, but the implementation 0. so if you look back at how soon as developed over the years, you knew the growth has been in stop, stop, stop, stop. what is the thing is when you implement new policies, impact fix a while to shoot. so that's why we look at intermediate outcomes for now. that number of farmers benefits a number of children in school. we know that investments need to continue to need to be consistent. the need to be owned by every put everybody. we are now looking
7:39 am
towards how we can not be left behind in the for to drug industrial revolution. because you've talked about the 4th industrial revolution. i must come to this because it surprised me dramatically that electricity penetration in this country is just above 20 percent. how can we be talking about robotics and big data when people don't even have access to power? so that's the thing. and when we, if we try to perceive it in the lines of this comes before the other, that's where we missing the things that we can do together. and we can do that in more efficient ways. let's ask the person who's already doing it. mohammad, we're hearing here that it's possible to both be waiting for power supply and still innovate is as true or is the dr dreaming? as you said, i literally just above 20 percent access to an edgy. we have wind mills that we locally fabricated. all we need is one to scalable solutions and a replicate for more communities. we develop hydrogenated, so just from scrubs all the solutions can solve our energy crisis. for my own
7:40 am
initiative, i've been able to empowered over through, on the other young people in my defend initiative, wished to enlarge initiatives on power over 20 communities using wished to energy. sometimes we wished we are stuck in areas we are, we have our ideas. and then we see does this ideas of potential to really grew? are we from a wound, the community that we've started? it's but it's talk because there are no support. so really ah skill up to the next stage and he was secure funded. ok. so dot com. i want to come back to you because we've had a lot of things that might make one to press, you know, i, electricity not available. internet penetration, very low education, quality, questionable. but it's not all gloom and doom. is it? no slower? yeah. so 1st of all, our, to the, asked the young person in government, i wear that hat because i think it's my responsibility as a citizen to make, to be in space. this way i can drive positive positive thing. so in my role as director of research and delivery, that's what i do. i'm on the take research and advice,
7:41 am
but what we need to do is we need to revisit the way we formed our development. cuz we're always talking about m financial inclusion and getting entrepreneurship. now we of course we in and putting money into incubators and accelerators, but then we work with development partners also. and it always seems to be, it's more about a numbers game around number of beneficiaries than impacts hydro. we started with you, i'd like to conclude with you. what do you think lies ahead for the use of this country earlier asked if they're able to compete globally? i wonder if your answer has changed. i think after hearing all this, i strongly stand on my answer. we still have a huge percentage of the, of the population live in, you know, below the poverty line. don't, don't tell me i need to compete in the global market when i can't even compete with countries like kenya and gonna look at what ronda still in senegal, in 2035, you're going to have so much energy from sola. and here we are,
7:42 am
like looking at countries like the u. s. in england. we have to stop that. let's compete locally, instead of like globally. and i think one step at a time with local solution. yeah, we can get there, wants to put a time. i like that and i think that's also a great place for us to end. at the beginning of this debate, i asked if the serial union use a set up to compete globally. and i think the answer we've had repeated over and over again is in good time. thank you for watching. thanks it, it for that debate now ha, is are to barry's, is a somewhat controversial point. should cyril unions focused on competing locally or us? some of you would say we live in a global world, and so we should compare ourselves to the rest of the world. and if you want to watch a longer version of this debate, go on to our youtube channel. and also on our facebook page, we asked many of you,
7:43 am
if you feel you are ready to compete with the rest of the world. and yes, what solomon younger who lives here in berlin says, are we absolutely not prepared in other parts of the world? they are devastated because they have no young population to keep their social systems running. but in africa, our leaders can't make use of their youth. that's food for thought. and paul, no one from our novia. liberia says west africa is still developing infrastructure solutions and development will need every was full participation to achieve the result set. living at all in the hands of the government will take another century to work. there should be no more excuses. human beings should start fixed india every day, but decisions. so you are talking about personal responsibility and people taking charge. and one final one from james past cast, who lives in long wim allow is miss jen allowing a retirement age has been increased from 65 to 70. when do young people get
7:44 am
employment? it's a big question. i feel what you're saying, and let us also know what you think about this particular topic, because shed was dos with us on our facebook page, d, w, africa. now across the continent, young people are ready to contribute, but often there isn't any opportunity for them. in this song, arrested, interrupt macula east talked about the lack of chances for many african youth. oh, your never needed was an opportunity. ah. yeah. i think you've got what it takes to make the place a better place. we think good comes demanding for a better place. for heaven's sake, give us a chance to elevate,
7:45 am
give us the space and they help in hand to live unemployed without jobs they called us lazy will be posted and industries they bought us crazy promised me. but a big re spend more than we own. so we always in depth. we worked hard to game. he had a pain in the spring and from hand to mouth goes every grade that we get, these rob hot boss, retake them or drops locally and hot jobs. life is hard on improvement on the rise, a national crisis, and it makes me wonder why the system was late this long way. just moving, climbing the prices keep hiking in the government. don't care. they live in just slight case. think i just saw him please. kate of oh, now they wonder why the streets, hey, safety will cause this boy more problems and replaces the more they can take it. no more. so replacing the so really leave is going to leave it in the, from the pool or we ever really needed was just basic support. they received reagan a, you know, they don't know the feeling of seeing mama wake up at 4. i need it wasn't
7:46 am
thanks, killer is for dad banging song. sometimes it's not enough to wait for the opportunity . you have to shake some tables, shut some glass ceilings and snatch it. that is what the women be about to meet are doing. in gambia, many people still look at phoebe mechanics with scorn. but that lost off eda and for to matter the set up the our own auto mechanics shop where the fixed cost, while $10.00 in social norms on the hit. the center of sarah condo hosts a very unique place. the only garage owned and run by women in the gambia photo, marta, jamie and eda fall have joined forces to defy stereotypes and gain a foothold in the auto industry. however, they 1st had to commit their loved ones about their passion. my biggest challenge was dealing with my mom to convince my mom that hi, it's ok. this is my passion. these one i believe in this is what i want to do. so
7:47 am
forget about the serial time. so guess about mo, i'm a woman, is a car, a choice that i have to make as in many other countries, men dominate the car industry. women are supposed to stick to traditional duties. for most, this includes unpaid work and agriculture sector and they rarely own property. but after studying mechanical engineering of what to matter, opened her own garage. you may order more than 5 provider is the organ is use under set is set to organize all the female that i in automotive industry to the come together. we find it very difficult to be accept in the industry. and in i said, let us also have his son sample that nettles establish. oh female. got it apart from repairing and maintaining several cars per day for too much, anita, teach young girls the basics of mechanics. the training program is designed to empower girls and reduce the gender gap in vocational education sign up,
7:48 am
who has joined them. i said again, they feel it over it is because i love it. they said what mankind? no man lewis. and i said no that that's why i had to join the sweeney to show them that what man can do a man can do it even more. despite the patriarchal mindset in gambling society, many people are starting to overcome prejudices and not hesitate to entrust their cause to the women. many of these are kind of job will be assigned to man in sort of woman. so not does that does one of the reason not moves me to come here because i was impressed. i was impressed when i hear that you know, it was in all gone by ladies. notwithstanding the financial obstacles and gender discrimination for to marta and either have become an example of women's resilience by following their dreams and empowering the appears to fight for equal opportunities. there thing you should remember when you watch this story is that no
7:49 am
job is tended. the only thing that he should consider is whether or not a person mama, woman, can get the job done unless agreed to do this, you know, a young person who is running a business. so let's make it a point to patronize them. said i'd become all grew together. for our next report, we had to a crock honest capital lorris, a j bills, electric by extra east transportation. and at the time when full price is shooting through the roof, is innovation is 7 pockets and the environment in gunners capital occur getting from a to b can be a night me. it's normally hot in distances afar. and if you do drive or take public transport, you stuck in traffic rush hour can triple travel times. so canadians are increasingly switching to to real lawrence a. j is a pro cyclists and has been building his own
7:50 am
e bikes for years, with a twist. ah, what is pushing on by case i use is accurate. lot of budgets. secondly, i by putting to possible is then you have a stronger and is very strong like on that is times why. so i thought that was going on is i want to know young. i think it was like living right in this in if you do it. so want to create myself stand from then progress central meters are by the 26 year old is self taught. he watches read before we are almost every day and tinkers with his iep, like lauren's orders, the remaining part through the internet. meanwhile de la russell men, so self e bikes from china. but those suffer performance issues. the buttery, documented,
7:51 am
and shelly. wearing stud robin. yes. so when it came reading the should, this was we were of pain yellow or lot of complaints from customers for lawrence to it's not just about the joy of writing, but also traveling cheaply and quickly, especially as fuel prices rise. his e bikes can cover up to 130 kilometers per charge. i wasn't because the designs are designed to work. right? well, i thought i needed a mortal my then as i went on i told him all my solution and he said well, you can do something else. so far, lawrence has sold 7 of his e bikes, but he's looking to supercharged his iep, my dream with
7:52 am
as someone who grew up in that cra, i know how much seals people have to endure on their way to the office. and that's why i think that this innovation is going to make a big difference. and so i'll be keeping an eye on lawrence. and after whizzing around on the bike, it's time to cool down. and what better place to do that than in east africa? whether it's rolling hills and beautiful sunsets, specifically less quote, you put you in poorer. the former capital city of bronte has habits fair share of political upheaval. but peace asked finally returned. i am a local connect who's going to show us around what's up mackenzie. 2 2 with what's up with the guy? my name is mona was that kelly is that also known as mo kingsley amberin. jan. i'm a senior and i live in region who rides that economy. capital city of randi,
