“It’s an opportunity to create the future he wants to live in,” said his sponsor, David Sengeh, PhD Student at the MIT Media Lab. “For quite many years Sierra Leone and many other African countries received aid, but it does not necessarily get us anywhere. We’re not looking into the future, we’re not designing our own future. Unless we have a host of young people who can think at any given point ‘Here is a challenge. Here is a problem, but it’s an opportunity to solve it’ there won’t be a state of growth in national development.”
Every once in a while, you come across something that just makes you stop and think… As I watched this video, I knew without a doubt that what we are doing here at Table Top Inventing is more than just selling a few 3D printers and some electronic parts. It’s more than just the cool factor or the thrill of presenting at conferences. It’s about inspiring a generation of kids to be like THIS kid – tinkerers, explorers, innovators, deep thinkers. It’s about giving them the tools they need to create and invent and become all that God designed them to be, and from there, to change their world… to change OUR world. At Table Top Inventing, we believe this is important, and we think you should too. Sierra Leone may be thousands of miles away, but we have kids right here in our own neighborhoods who, if given access to the right tools and mentoring by someone who cares, will change the world we all live in. Isn’t that worth investing in? Ask us how!
