“I am very much humbled and excited at the same time with mixed emotions because of the magnitude of the event and its potential to elevate my sphere of influence and network.
Education is a big issue is Africa with a huge percentage of children especially girls not accessing basic education. The few that have the opportunity are found learning under a tree, a semi completed classroom with limited resources such as text books and teaching staff.
This has increased vulnerability of the African child. I hope that through this engagement with the World Bank us as young people can submit meaningful recommendations that can result in the unlocking of financial resources and supportive projects especially for those at tertiary level. The subject of education is so dear to my heart especially because I personally had to struggle to get educated.Says Njabulo Moyo

Life in the ghetto is never an easy road and many times even if one has the opportunity to access education the environment is never conducive for academic learning, there is so much pressure for one to follow the trends such as prostitution, economic migration and crime. I personally dedicate the remaining part of my life to advance access to education both in terms of theory and practical learning.
To date I have written five books, conduct motivational leadership seminars, social entrepreneurship and life skills coaching as a way of contributing to the emotional intelligence and soft skills of young people globally.
The Bulawayo born creative expect’s the summit to yield practical solutions with actionable points and not another talk show as he has seen with many high-level meetings. It is one thing to gather people and discuss ideas and another to implement.”
Moyo is grateful for the support he is getting in the USA from various stakeholders especially those hosting him the organisation Chicago Votes and the fellowship organiser International Research and Exchange Board, I would not be at this level without them.Says Moyo
