Dr.Rahel Kassahun Executive Director of Africa Unbound expounds on what is thought emancipation. This is the outro after her interview with the President of the African Development Bank Donald Kabaruka.
Rahel says : In this program Dr.Kabaruka talked about the need for emancipation of our thinking. You may ask what does that have to do with growth and development? I would say everything.
Free thinking people find solutions to problems,free thinking means questioning established beliefs and world views that don’t make sense to you. This develops your capacity,forming your own opinions and coming up with a new idea. If you do not have a new idea, then you cannot change your life or make a difference in your community,it’s as simple as that..
If something doesn’t make sense to you or you do not like what you see around you,start asking yourself some questions. And continue to think about the issue. The more you focus and put your attention on a particular problem, the more likely you are to come up with a new idea or a solution to the problem.
When more and more people think about specific issues and come up with new ideas and solutions, we’ll begin to effectively deal with all the challenges that come with under development. Your liberated mind is the key to freedom and prosperity, engage with it constructively by asking questions reading and talking with other like minded individuals.
At Africa unbound we are building communities of like minded individuals all over the continent.
