Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
A world that works for everyone is a world where the rights of people are respected and equal opportunities are created for everyone. A world where we live in peace and love, free from worries, wars, arm robbery and etc.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
There are a number of pressing problems facing our world today, but I will state three;
One of the most pressing problems in our world today is unemployment for young people, according to the Economist Magazine on 27th April 2013 page 9 writes that OECD figures suggest that 26million 15 to 24 year olds in developed countries are not in employment, education or training. World Bank Survey suggest that 262 million young people in emerging markets are economically inactive, almost the size of the United States.
Poverty has assumed an escalating rate even in developed countries. In Africa the situation is worse.
Many scholars have already agreed that climate change may be one of the greatest threats facing the planet. Recent years show increasing temperatures in various regions, and/or increasing extremities in weather patterns, such as Hurricane Katrina and the 2004 Tsunami and Earthquake in Asia.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
These problems could best be solved by our leaders designing relevant programs that would prepare young people for the Job market. In Africa the government alone cannot perform this task and there is a need to equip young people to be entrepreneurs instead joining the cue of those searching for jobs. One of the solutions to poverty is education. If various governments would invest more into providing education to its people and creating conditions that allows for productivity and growth, the level of poverty in our world would reduce. Recycling and the use of recycled products can save trees from been cut down which would help to reduce climate change.
My name is Moses Baffour Awuah , I am 24 years old from Ghana. I come from a middle class family. I am about to Graduate from Central University College with Bsc. Human Resource Management. I am interested in Human empowerment and young people been equipped to discover and live their purpose in life. I am passionate about leadership and I believe that in as much as people can be born with leadership traits in them everybody can be trained to be a leader. It’s my personal view that everything and I mean everything rises and fall on leadership and if young people are trained to be transformational leaders, there would be hope for our world. I spend considerable amount of time learning and mentoring people with the little I know. I believe that if young people would come to appreciate the fact that they were not born with knowledge in their minds and they would have to submit themselves to one that has gone ahead of them it would go a long way to help them avoid the mistakes of their fathers and to make a difference in this world..
This year I started an NGO called Youth Arise Organization which is committed to the principles and values of mentoring it education and policy oriented work. The organization aims at a specific type of development for people: the process by which the members of the society (especially young people) increase their personal capacities to mobilize and manage their existing resources, to produce sustainable (lasting) and justly distributed improvements in their quality of life, consistent with their own aspirations. Empowerment of people is the key word for Youth Arise. In June we organized a five weeks leadership program for twenty five high schools graduates and the impact was tremendous, the testimonies that came out of it was mind blowing. My personal Joy is tied up is seeing smiles upon the faces of young people and seeing them living a life of Choice instead of chance.
I am determined to contribute my quota to this world and live my thumbprints for generations yet unborn to leave read about. I personally believe that it is important to leave for a cause that is greater than oneself. I am not so much into movies but if I am caught watching a movie it probably would be an epic movie, Troy & Odysseus are my favorite so far but sometimes I watch Jet Li movies. I love books on leadership, Business & Finance and on politics but I believe that the best book to read is the Bible, it encapsulate everything we need to know about life, I believe it is the manual of life. I am not so much into sports but I hope to learn how to swim, play Golf and Long Tennis in future. When I have a spare moment I try not to miss Real Madrid’s matches, especially when they are playing in the Champions League. I love to pioneer a movement and it’s my earnest desire to make a difference in this world.
