Meet Kebba-Omar Jagne the founder of Movaar, a social enterprise in The Gambia that runs and builds programs and platforms for skills formation and specialisation for those that want to hone in on particular skills. And they also have an incubator program for businesses and income generating activities.
In the interview that we did with Omar back in 2019, Omar shares:
- How he was able to bring the movers and shakers of The Gambia together to support his programs
- Why the education systems built around “cram and exam” style learning are failing young people to stand on their own and discover what they are capable of
- How his idea for Movaar went through several iterations until it became what it is today
- And how we can overcome the challenges of today and tomorrow
He also shares what to do when the power goes off in the middle of a critical presentation and how a team of young people put The Gambia on the map in a robotics competition.
There is a lot of good stuff in this interview and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did. And now, without further ado, enter Omar.
