Hello Austin Moyo! Indeed a great design to improve the entrepreneurial skills of teeming youth and women in Malawi. Nonetheless, I suggest special provision for disabled youth and women. You may agree with me that disabled persons are the most vulnerable of all times and in all things. Therefore, require special attention in any design for economic emancipation.

Hi Movement on the Ground! It is great to innovate to develop refugees, instead of lament their inconveniences and liability. Yes, nice to fine-tune their skills for productivity in their new territory. Perhaps, they will make another industrial and technological revolution. If increasing number of immigrants is completely bad, why will U.S.A grant Visas through lottery to thousands of people for many years. For me, increasing population becomes bad where they do not correlate with economic growth due to lack of skilled manpower and productivity. Even China with a population of about 1.385Billion people is still flying very high among committee of countries with almost full employment of human and material resources. So, superlative congrats for thinking outside the box.

Hi Carolien cpronk@redcross.nl! Great and insightful design here. Yes; it pays little or nothing to concentrate immigrants in camps with brand as refugees and displaced persons at the expense and liability of the entire society. It is better to integrate and utilize their skills and resourcefulness for economic development of their territory of residence. But very importantly, endeavor to adequately accommodate disabled persons among them. Once again, super applauds to this design.
