posted in: Uncategorized 0

A few weeks ago I came across the World Bank Africa on Twitter and I followed them. they followed me back and promptly sent me a Direct Message

Submit your video today! What would you fund in Africa to fight poverty? http://bit.ly/aOIjWf

I followed the link and was interested to find that the World Bank is genuinely seeking our opinions

World leaders will be gathering next month to discuss the replenishment of the International Development Association (IDA) fund, the World Bank’s fund for the poorest countries that helps fight poverty in Africa. We want you to join this conversation by submitting your video today! In a 2-minute video, answer the following question: If you were asked to advise the Bank on what to fund in your village, your town, your province, your state or your country to reduce poverty, what would you recommend and why?

Videos must be submitted by Monday, November 22nd. (11:59pm GMT).

For all inquiries, email afrex@worldbank.org

I duly recorded my 2 minute video and emailed it

I must add that I was still skeptical at this stage as to whether this was a genuine request and that there is a real person at the end of the line(email) who is going through those videos and to my surprise someone called Nicole responded saying “Great Video”. Here is my 2 minute so go on and submit your own idea
