Mobile Games Inspiring The Next Generation Of African Leaders

On an otherwise reasonable evening, more than 1,000 people packed an auditorium in Boulder, Colorado, for the culmination of the 2011 Unreasonable Institute. They came to see 27 ventures  present their solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges.


Anne Githuku-Shongwe, Founder and CEO of Afroes Transformational Games, shares her vision of ending poverty in Africa in her lifetime and how her venture is set out to inspire the next generation of leaders in Africa to eradicate big problems like poverty.

Imagine if every young person decided to step up and end poverty in Africa. Tweet This Quote

    It is such a great idea to bring eduction to the kids of Africa through mobile game. We have many tv programs and mobile games that are meant to teach our kids here in the US. To know that these basic programs are now available to kids in Africa is amazing. I am excited to see how Anne’s idea pans out.

    I justwatched a film about female circumcised or female genital mutilation. The thing that I noticed is that all the females in the movie had cell phones which is crazy to think because we are connected to them. So this makes so much sense. Then you take it further and incorporate mobil gaming. GREAT IDEA
