Entrepreneurial Nation Building

If you read my previous post, Pray for Africa, you will get an idea of the passion that I have for that great continent. Of course while prayer is essential, it is just the first step to creating change. The Bible says that prayer not accompanied by action is worthless (James 2:17). Therefore, in addition to praying, there is something else that I’m committed to doing. I have a vision for helping people in Africa build an entrepreneurial network that will result in exponential increases in economic empowerment, employment and education.

Poverty is such an oppressive institution that it often drives people who feel powerless to do desperate things, and in African countries and elsewhere that often involves violence. One of the keys to reducing this violence is to reduce peoples’ feelings of powerlessness and purposelessness. That’s why I believe equipping people with entrepreneurial skills and resources, coupled with creating governmental policies and business environments that support and encourage entrepreneurship, will help to empower people personally, economically and socially.

With this being the case, I was incredibly excited to find some enlightening and inspiring videos on YouTube of Paul Kagame, the president of Rwanda. He is talking about his belief that entrepreneurship can be a key component of strategically building a nation economically and socially. I agree with him wholeheartedly. Enjoy!
