I need you email to send you an attachment of the youth program.
Here are a series of links that explain the program. The thing to keep in mind is to keep it simple. In the case of Lusaka High School I walked un annouced into the head techers office, was in vited back the next day. We did 30 minute talk with the kids and with only teacher they grabbed out cells and cameras to do 17 stories in 90 minutes. In the case National University of Lesotho they had me 5 workshops. You can do this many ways. just keep it simple.
There have been a number of requests to do a more aggressive recruitment of African youth into social networking. For this are putting together a town wide program called CyberYouth Day that would involve Telco sponsors and all of the towns Cyber Café launch a massive sign of youth on email, training and community leadership training on how the Internet can help with development. On the sponsorship page there more information on this. This is also a way for use to generate sponsorship funds, which we greatly needed by all of us.

I totally agree with you.Getting African women out of poverty has proven not to be only beneficial for her but to her whole family and society.As educated African women we should provide a role model to show them that they can do it.
Do you think that micro finance is a sustainable solution to poverty in Africa?
