Nice to hear from you Ken

Young africans tend to host many more meetings (action invitations) in dc than any other diaspora; can i inttroduce you  to frances- she's  the young connectior of african projects i rely on most - we meet in several overlapping networks and hub spaces -- while i loved the 3 day event at the wprld banmk i was quite surprised that it did not directly give voice to all of the world bank associayted youth networks - about a month ago i attened a 300 young african launch at the IFC of  Addis Ideas which was described as the overall collaboration portal- i think frances knows the founders - so if the portal looks good to you please see if she can help connect you nearer to its youth organsiers than ip can

one of these has its own version of a linkedin so we can remember who is who - if you have time please register at www.cbnexus.net that way i can remember to try and introduce you to others as well as king the designer of this tool linking in conscious youth; knowing king gives us a chnace to evolve the tags for searching the database - i will be checking with king what the main green tag is

amy was the one young person i meet regularly who attended the 3 days of the world bank summit and we quite regularly meet frances and king
also she has spent a lot of time contributingh to www.emerald-planet.tv  our regions green cable tv channel searching the world for most replicable solutions- i am not sure if they already have a subnetwork connecting around your main focus

Is one of your projects crowdfunded at stephanie'sd space; i have quite a lot of ctaching up to do in understanding her alumni and alumni of the various sponsors of the 3 day event- kkep at me if you think there is something friends otr i copuld be helping to action

Also do tell us if you are passing through DC so we can try and meet

frances, and friends of nigeria and globalyouth

 while personally i have a  communityyouth valuation bias towards bottom-up, girl empowerment system designs of sustainability economics, which can then be replicated worldwide through suitable mobile wizardry and community-trusted open spaces and hackathons --- and transform education systems to be youth-led  
 i do marvel at one fun dinner meeting convened around global Nigerians at MIT who mapped a wholly different plan

most of them have fallen out of touch but who knows maybe they would reconnect with a compatriot like you - or maybe together with naila and others they will share their latest progress  (the dinner party was hosted circa 2012 by naila's 1996 mit and dubai (legatum bank) technology founding partner in grameen phone the quadir family who these days linkin the mobile futures of brac as world's largest partner in girl empowerment whose founding family amy and mostofa revisit in a couple of weeks)

the nigerian idea - own a satellite tv company across the continent which searches for the continent industry leader sector by sector whose market purpose is sustainably best for all the peoples -africa's conscious capitalism if you will

idea creators africa24tv constant nemale and yacine barro (she previously worked with the cellnet billionniare mo ibrahim until he developed his prize for national african leaders that actually retire leaving their country in a better youth state than when they came to power) Africa24 | La première chaîne mondiale d'information pour l'Afrique -hq paris about 80 journalists on the case 24 hours a day

there is also an imposing security guy called steve hightower- somehow he made his fortune driving oil tankers all over the continent- he attended atlanta's last 4 years of trying to liberate all historically black students through annual entrepreneurship summits- he used to tell me over a beer, he didnt quite understand the format but one day would sponsor something 10 times more impactful - i dont know if he meant that - i have no knowledge of nigeria other than a great uncles unfinished mission - somehow he planted community goodwill in south korea before world war 2 and nigeria in the first 20 years after world war 2 -no wonder he called his last report mission unfinished
