Please tell us how leadership training would help you to make an even greater impact on the social innovation field.
This training will enrich my skills especially in communication so I can deal with different cases during the replication of this project. I will be able to convince people to get back to lands with my innovative ideas and have them involved in the development of agriculture and thus the development of our country.
Please enclose a short personal biography.
Every morning at around 5 am, while everyone is sleeping or get prepared for prayer, two women carrying three children and a baby walk toward the main street in order to ask for charity. The first time, I saw them through my windows, the baby's cries woke me up. It was 5h 10 am. And after on my way to schhol, I saw them again begging in the main street, I was surprised to see them here. I told it to a friend and she said that there are some women who leave their villages with their children to come to dakar, the capital. What are they doing here? Begging and prostitution! Rare are those who find a job in dakar. One day i talked to these women. One is a widow and and the other has been repudiated. Left with nothing, they were living in a decrepit building near to my district. My questions were: are these enough reasons to loose your dignity by begging in the street or prostitute yourself? Don't you want your children grow up in excellent conditions and be educated? Women are pillars of a community, they give birth, raise kids, unify the family etc. My name is Sira Camara, senegalese and student in master Finance. As a young and educated woman, I won't be a spectator and let these two women and all those who are in the same case helpless. I will use the little knowledge and experience i have acquired in school, little networks I have, to support them and give them hope.
