Have any of you ever visited institutions like Berea College in Kentucky, College of the Ozarks in Missouri, Warren Wilson in North Carolina and a few more such institutions? If not, do it. What you will learn there will revolutionize the way you look at higher education in Africa. In addition to their academic pursuits, students at these institutions work 15-20 hours a week to offset tuition and; room and board costs. They are what are called Work Colleges. They used to be popular in the US several decades back but now there are only seven left. Visit the http://www.workcolleges.org/ and see for yourself. All the money that Development Partners spend on tertiary education could start these types of colleges that educate the "head, hands, and heart" through the integration of learning, work experience and service to others. Believe you me, a new cadre of African leaders would emerge and the continent would take off.
