I trained my mind to think critically

The education models adopted across Africa today have been built on top of an old process that was designed to produce workers. However, in the world that we live in today, we are expected to synthesize new tasks. We are expected to create, not just produce. This is only possible when we have trained ourselves to think.

Learn to think

There is a huge opportunity to improve the educational systems in Africa to refocus young adults to thinking and learning skills instead of just the learning of skills. The ability to just learn new tasks isn’t enough. This is why the Lapid Leaders Experience is tailored to grow the thinking capabilities of the youth we work with. Check out this video by one of the Lapid Leaders who talks about how she learned to thinking and how this has benefited her.
