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
