The inherited colonialistic form of rote education that is based on obedience rather than creativity is one key element that must be repaired in Africa for the Motherland to rise in its effective ability to be the great oasis of the world.
There is a stigma around Agriculture in Africa by society as it represents the lowest form of work. This perception is counterintuitive and must be reversed but how? Youth are taught to become lawyers, bank managers and anything else that represent money and westerndumb.
A solution would be to bring forward the creation of living classrooms at each school. Lets say for instance here in Ghana a small demonstration type school garden could be created. A garden can integrate every aspect of learning and un-learning that is needed to repair the young generation who will be the future leaders. In our experiences we have found that adding Moringa to the organic school garden provides a means for youth to then be creative in product development ranging from cream, to soap, to powder to food sources made from the Moringa which fixates nitrogen into the earth, grows with very little water and is known as the miracle tree.
Returning to the land is a step towards reclaiming indigenous knowledge, creativity, and solution oriented actions which are all elements of Repairing the forced brain wash and resource depletion that has wreaked havoc on AFrica.
By no means is this living classroom/garden the only solution to recreating the positive curriculum adjustment away from white is right but it is a step and harvesting healthy food, medicine and experiential reaping is what can inspire youth to become workers of change rather than the same old obedience to the Willie Lynch plan that has gone global.
Please, what other solutions are there for reclaiming the spirit of creativity that has been deadened by 500 years of brain wash education and left the world on the brink of mental, spiritual and physical starvation of the true and living fountain of pure water, organic food and Yah/Jah mind.
