1:32 pm
a group called pulling charlo, i think it's because of their hydroxy puts towards getting 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 past that i am today. i tried to follow him by doing what she does concentrating way and being my mice cribs and also researching on my carter before a cause said or rather being evolving into my car a really i'm ready fenusse peripheral luther. yeah. dana, all crazy in you're just liggins, like i did before. the do an m m m, i do show i gear world. so i think my them to study beamed. c o e,
1:33 pm
they're not fully there. dial along with her is what the latest if you know you wholesale i am i do need he really the unique lassie small to do so at the moment i'll say a mouthful. this is an american skate border, 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 like a non just quit on karen trying. i want to get the checks or ever print will ever
1:34 pm
stop trying my trick. well, cross to you nelson. i can't begin to attempt any of those tricks, 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 our age in germany and china, but do you feel prepared to compete? that is what my colleague edward kamani asked young sewell unions in this week, st. pete? yes. what he say, ah, hello and welcome to the 77 percent were here at the prince of wales 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,
1:35 pm
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 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 the 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,
1:36 pm
because we're talking about some of the limits that come about, particularly after graduating, say university. and i know finances was one of the key ones for you. is it normal, or is it a normal occurrence for young people yet to stop there, tertiary education, because they simply no bus or is no school fees? i got malcolm in 2016 with no. there's no support finacialow for me to follow my the kitchen. so i decided to move, and senator rick vicious, 0, telecom nutrition as a search engine for me, just to support medication. and i was working, go for bus success. they also put a drag and go with. all right, so let me speak to doctor come here for a 2nd because she is the director of research if i'm not mistaken, of for delivery and delivery in 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,
1:37 pm
what next? the thing is. yes. for years we've been focused on traditional education. that's the reality. but now we transition in unseen the awareness and how people approach technical vocational training and the need for him to be know, sheep and how he doesn't need to be just one sec or you have in one calling to serve. you can serve in multiple ways. you can be a doctor and still be an entre printer. you can be an entropy nor an an advocate. so having that platform or creating those systems in which of them are these, they thought and ideas. know they log in create that is just that we need to scale up and find ways to accelerate the creation of those. the crazy. 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 you don't think education should be faithful . 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
1:38 pm
in sierra leone, where the 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 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 this 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 know, the growth has been in stop, stop, stop, install. what is the thing is when you implement new policies, impact fix a while to shoe. so that's why we look at intermediate outcomes for now. that
1:39 pm
number of farmers, bennett, since number of children in schools, we know that investments need to continue to need to be consistent. the need to be owned by everybody everybody. we are now looking towards how we can not be left behind in the $42.00 industrial revolution. because we'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 miss it. there are 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. it is true or is the doctor dreaming? as you said, a literally of just above 20 percent access to energy. we have wind mills that we locally fabricated. all we need is one so scalable solutions and replicate for more
1:40 pm
communities. we develop hydro generator just from scrubs. all the solutions can solve our energy crisis. for my own initiative, i've been able to empowered over through on the other young people in my defend initiative, wish to engage 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 even the community that we've started? it's but it's talk because there are no support. so really, um skill up to the next stage and he was secure funded. okay, 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, a 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 me,
1:41 pm
to be in space. this way i can drive was positive change. so in my role as director of research and delivery, that's what i do. i'm on the take research and advice, but what we need to do is we need to revisit the way we formed our development. because we're always talking about financial inclusion and getting entrepreneurship . now we of course be 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. how do we started with you? i'd like to conclude with you. what do you think lies ahead for the use of this country early i 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
1:42 pm
countries like 10. yeah. and gonna look at what ronda is doing, senegal in 2035, you're going to have so much energy from solar. and here we are 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 by the time what local solution 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 heard repeated over and over again is in good time. thank you for watching a thanks. it is for that debate now. hi john is are to barry's is a somewhat controversial point. should several unions focus 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
1:43 pm
you want to watch a longer version of this to be to go on to you to tunnel. and also on our facebook page, we asked many of you, 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 our paso to weld? 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 isolations 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 personnel responsibility and people taking charge. and one final one from james past caste who lives in long wim allow. he
1:44 pm
says, here i'm allowing a retirement age has been increased from 65 to 70. when do young people get employment? it's a big question. i feel what you're saying, and let us also know what you think about this particular topic. you can 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. ah, your leave, it was an opportunity ah young with
1:45 pm
you've got what it is telling the place a better place demanding for when the police have been sick, give us a chance to elevate, give us the space and they help in hand to live on employ without jobs or they called us lazy and when we posted and had dispute, they put us crazy promises me, but a big we spend more than we own. so we always and we worked hard to game. he had a pain in the spring and from hand to mouth goes every plane that weekend, they drive hot cause retake them, hot drops locally and hot jobs. life is hot. i live on the rise, a national crisis, and it makes me wonder why the system is like this. long wait, as well in climbing the prices keep hiking in the government, don't care. they live in just like came thinking to some employees, kato, now they wonder why the streets, hey, safely more customers more and more problems, and replaces the more they can take a walk. so be facing the so really just want to leave it in the, from the pool or we ever really needed was just basic support a you know,
1:46 pm
they don't know the feeling of seeing mama wake up at 4 o 2, italy, you're not able to eat it was an opportunity thanks killer is for dad banging song . sometimes it's not enough to wait for the opportunity. you have to shake some tables, shutter some glass ceilings and snatch it. that is what the women be about to meet, are doing. in gambia, many people still look a feeble mechanics with scorn, but i do not stop either and for to matter. they set up the, our own or to mechanics shop where the fixed cost, while tenant social norms on the head. 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 joint forces to defy stereotypes and gain a foothold in the auto industry. however, they 1st had to commit their loved ones about their passion on and my biggest
1:47 pm
challenge was the dylan my mom to convince my mom that hi, it's ok, this is my passion. these one i believe in this is what i why do you do so forget about the stereotypes. we'll get them out. i'm a woman. there's a car 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 really own property. but after studying mechanical engineering, tomato opened her own garage. he met automotive pool. that is all going to use on the set is set to organize all the females in automotive industry to the come together, refine it very difficult to be, accept in the industry. and as i said, the levels will have some sample that little as that is female. got it apart from repairing and maintaining several cars per day for too much on teach young girls
1:48 pm
the basics of mechanics. the training program is designed to empower goals and reduce the gender gap in vocational education sign up, who has joined them. i said that they feel like this because i love it. they see what, ma'am? new mexico lewis. and i said no, the best way to join the screening to show them that what men can do, women can do it even more despite the patriarchal mindset and can be in society. many people are starting to overcome prejudices and not hesitate to entrust their cause to the women. many of these kind of job would be assigned to man in sort of woman. so not does it does one of the reason not move me to come here because i was impressed. i was impressed when i hear that, you know, it was gone by ladies. notwithstanding the financial obstacles and gender discrimination for too much and have become an example of women's resilience by
1:49 pm
following their dreams and empowering their peers to fight for equal opportunities . that thing you should remember when you watch this story is that no job is tended . the only thing that he should consider is whether or not a person mom, a woman can get the job done. unless i agree 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 begun all grew together. for our next report we had to accra janice, capital lawrence, a j bill's 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 t b can be a nightmare. it's normally hot in distances are far. and if you do drive or take public transport, you're stuck in traffic. rush hour can triple travel times. so canadians are
