Rio+20: Harnessing the talent of children

Rio+20 (20/06/2012) – Dr Bawa Abdullahi Wase, African Children Talent Discovery Foundation explains the aims of the foundation in tapping into the talent of children in Africa.

Whatever the activity, from singing to agriculture, he says, as soon as they begin to show either an interest or a particular talent in any specific area – from the age of four to 16, the foundation makes sure that talent of interest is harnessed by providing relevant scholarships or work programmes which aid the children’s development.
