Ebenezer commented on Challenge Accepted!

My country has a challenging issue which has been there since time memorial, from the beginning of educational development.
Our colonial masters even though introduced education to our people they did so to their own interest. Talking about the trade they were engaged with our people. They therefore neglected technical education and concentrated only on the 3 rs. I mean reading writing and arithmetics. This has left our country technically bankrupt. The old now have no knowledge on the latest requirement for jobs. They are only into reading and writing in addition to arithmetic. The youth of today in my country has the biggest task to serve as mentors and introduce the old to the changing demands in our job markets.
Computing is one of the biggest challenges facing our old folks and much efforts is needed to correct this set back. As part of this challenge much attention will be directed there and my challenge will be concentrated there.
