Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.

This is a world where everyone is consulted in decision making, everyone’s ideas are considered and where no one makes decisions for all, but the the decisions made are the collective ideas for all.

What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?

The pressing problems are mostly to do with leadership problems.most leaders especially in africa think that they are the only capable people to LEAD and not SERVE the people hence cling to power and do not like being helped in decision making

How do you feel these problems could best be solved?

these could be solved if we can have leaders who are there to serve the people, who know the problems of the people, are willing to take constructive criticisms and who are aware on how systems work.
