Educational tourism in Africa: Be part of the video/essay competition

 

I just had a camera in my hand one afternoon and the first thing I started talking about was how to make things straight back home in the educational system, just one of the many sectors  that come to mind everyday. The thing is, the narrative always boils down to corruption. Everything is stained, affected, the future may have to suffer for it, and the hopeless chant is that it may get worse, but is this really the end?

I feel that until shameless corruption dies, and people start thinking of the future of Africa, or maybe just Nigeria for example, then we can’t have an educational system that attracts knowledge-thirsty students and researchers from all over the world, or that is even accessible to everyone in Africa who is interested in quality learning.
