Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Its been 10years since the first ever World Cup to be hosted in Africa, and more specifically in South Africa, 10years ago i couldn't imagine a future this vibrant and bright. My generation is the now movers and shakers. Through the past we have adopted the strategy of each one teaching one, we are owners of our own companies and employing scores and scores of the youth. This has obviously been possible also with the help of the government through youth and skills development agencies whereby corporate and private companies get incentives in employing the youth.

The world cup stimulated the economy and us as the young people continued the momentum and by learning to be entrepreneurial. The west has also addressed the injustice it has served Africa, and doing right by investing more in Africa more than ever, the days of Africans living way below the poverty line are becoming a thing of the past, people are less ignorant and can pick leaders that are not corrupt, thanks to educational initiatives, and also because its been 26 years since South Africa had introduced free education to government school pupils. AIDS is also an issue of the past in the country i live in, the South African population has started seeing a better future, therefore self preservation is the buzz attitude.

Its beautiful living in South Africa, the hills are still green, the rivers are still flowing endlessly, people are still smiling, Africa is once again alive with possibilities.....

Thabiso,

That is really a wonderful dream... I really feel that I've visited the future and seen whatever you have mentioned about. What do you mean by "strategy of each one teaching one, we are owners of our own companies and employing scores and scores of the youth."

I like the fact that you used the opportunity that your country got to host the 2010 world cup to your advantage... that you made a number of achievements out of it!

@Bongumusa, thanks for the heads up, i will most certainly have a look at your profile,

@Ronald, the "strategy of each one teaching one" refers to us as individuals, having significant unique and specials skills that no one else has being able to share those skills with our fellow peers and friends, that way we empowering each other in terms of skill development and all, its is almost similar to the saying "sharing is caring",

@Puleng, more or less yes! but we all know that there's no such thing as a free lunch nonetheless the help is much needed, perhaps i am being myopic in my thinking, but i do feel that the west will not help without expecting to get anything back, the World Bank has atleast contributed by coming up with initiatives like EVOKE - through such forums and discussions, someone, somewhere will say something that will ignite that social responsibility spark in someone...

I sincerely hope all this comes true. It's nice to think a wh*** continent could benefit so much from what used to be a pig's bladder being kicked around! I hope so.

Very much taken with the idea of "one teaching one"! Thanks for this vision and what you have shared.

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
