A Somalian refugee challenged this year’s World Economic Forum goers
Africa needs NEW BREED Leaders in every sector representing the forgotten.
Mohammed Hassan Mohamud- a Somalian refugee who has spent the last 20 years, challenged this year’s World Economic Forum goers. In the section where he was invited to co-chair, while the majority of the speakers focused on Computers, AI, and Policies issues and their impacts in the 21st C, he was a voice to the voiceless who have been marginalized in some corners of the world away from the limelight and forums like this ones.
He helped those who were present to have touch with reality. He pointed out, “Look at me, I have no marketable skills,” he continued, “Food aid, or ‘beans for people’ perpetuated a mentality of dependency which undermined refugees’ ability to chase their dreams and aspirations.”
He is on the mark. The sustainable way to defeat poverty and for Africa to come out of her predicaments is to have people-centered solutions like empowering its youth!
