“Science education on the continent, unfortunately is lacking in many ways. I do not just want to use my research to find new drugs or find new therapies, I want to use it as a space to increase the interest in the sciences and to build capacity for scientific research on the African continent.”
Where expectations are low, mediocrity thrives. But we must not simply set higher expectations. We must redefine our expectations entirely, recognizing that the opportunities and possibilities in Africa are limited only by our own imagination and commitment.
At ALA, we believe that young people can dream big, take action and change the world. Our youth are not only our hope for the future. They are our leaders today. They will be Africa’s greatest generation.
Together, we will redefine expectations.
