The Promise of Education in Africa

I'm in the process of filling out an application to attend TED Global this June in Tanzania. For those of you who aren't familiar with TED it's an annual conference that brings together cutting-edge thinkers in the arts, business, science and social activism. I'd be thrilled and honored to be able to attend. Below is a list of some of the previous blog entries I've written about opportunities related to education in Africa. I'm looking forward to writing more soon as we prepare to launch Education Revolution later this year.

Within a generation we'll have an opportunity to bring a world-class education to Africa and other developing nations. That opportunity has never existed within the entirety of humanity until now. And I count my blessings every day that I live in age where we can help to make that happen.
