- Dear Samwel, Pam, Janet and allI totaly agree on Samwel vision. Sam, you have a vision of a politician leader!I hope that African youth develop themself getting good education: from Philosophy, History, to learning and practical skills and abilities to run an independent and productive life and to be leaders in the big change we are facing. I wish that thay can bring a new vision to Europe too!All the best!Maria Agnese
