Greetings From Guy
Thomas J. Bata would have turned 100 last year. He was a visionary who improved the lives of hundreds of millions by putting functional affordable shoes on their feet, half a century before people started talking about “basic needs” or “social enterprise”. Our friendship was one of the best things in my life.
The Bata Legacy Award challenged entrepreneurs 35 and younger to identify a community need in East Africa and propose a creative, viable business solution that embraces the values that guided Bata throughout his career.

The Importance of eLearning in Higher Education
By: Guy Pfeffermann
Guy Pfeffermann recently returned from an eye-opening conference held in Addis Ababa about e-learning focused on the developing world. Rebecca Stromeyer, a member of GBSN’s Board of Directors, organized this event, which attracted some 1,200 participants. This was the 10th anniversary of e-Learning Africa. The conference strengthened GBSN's conviction that what is needed to effectively address the problem of youth unemployment is radical change in the way knowledge is imparted.
