Smart Solutions-Lamba: Senegel
Over the past 6 weeks I have taken part in a Professional Development Program, Mandela Washington Fellowship by the United States Government @Notre Dame University, and I have gotten to meet 24 fabulous young people from 20 Countries in Africa whom I am proud to have meet, because they all are doing something for Africa and offering smart solutions to problems and opportunities in their countries, before I arrived for the program I got a chance to view their profiles and I was intimidated! These guys looked so brilliant I didn’t think I could share a room with them, until I met them, one by one…Gosh they were the funniest most amazing young Africans I have ever met.
I’d like to share My personal experience with each of them and of course their amazing Initiative in solutions for Africa; Smart Solutions for Africa!
Allow me to share a story for each of them along with their smart solution.

We went rafting with Lamba once at a river in town, Lamba got on the 4 seater boat and while the boat was going down the river, she got nervous and couldn't take it anymore, she jumped right off the boat and it capsized leaving the rest 3 people underwater....a surprise baptism inspired by Lamba, the river is now called River Lamba, John the baptist of our time.
