    He was doing some impressive things. Teaching a skill that can be utilized anywhere and requires mobility of the children are favorable aspects of this too.

    yes and some of the terrains in Kigali can be really rough but...um can this guy wear a helmet please? he done lost most of his front teeth lol

    also i like how some people think he is a witch LOL
    As Africans, i think the first step would be to stop explaining everything we don't understand away as witchcraft.

    like that would really help a lot. :franko1:

    Well, I thank you for sharing. I’ve admired Rwandans for years on how they bounced back from the world’s shameful behavior in turning our backs and resources to the genocide, during and after. Their emphasis on tech and Internet entrepreneurship, despite being a landlocked nation, is admirable. It’s the African nation I most want to visit.

    And people over here, including black folk, need to see the world isn’t TV tropes and stereotypes. Kigali looks beautiful (from the clip). At first, I thought I was looking at Southern Cali or some of Texas/New Mexico border towns. Abdul reminds me of some the young men I saw in Kuwait performing “Mission: Impossible” type acrobatics with motorcycles on the highways in traffic. Young men who aren’t forced into militaries will find ways to be athletic no matter local circumstances or resources.

    I definitely would support his youth training activities if he has a charity or GoFundMe page.

    Yes Kigali is gorgeous(and more expensive now lol) and you should definitely visit ;) let me know if I can help with answering questions or what have you - I am the Acting African-in-Residence until @African King finishes his studies.

    A word! The genocide was able to get to that scale of mass killings because the government tapped into the energy of a frustrated, unemployed, and impressionable male youth. It's amazing what happens when you channel that energy in a different direction. Into sports, into arts, into education, into building the economy. I mean for ffs, the median age in Rwanda has always hovered around 19-20 years(!?)
