IBBAMO STORY In 1963 a preacher from Atlanta Georgia stood amidst a gathering crowd to proclaim out aloud his dream for the children of America. Forty-six years later, Dr Martin Luther King Junior’s dream turned into reality when Barack Obama became the 1st African American president of the United States of America. Both Dr Martin and Barack Obama were led by inspiration and so is the Ibbamo story. “Inspired by Barack and Michelle Obama�, Ibbamo Trust is a non-profit making company limited by guarantee which has applied to be a registered charity in the United Kingdom. The Trust is made up of professionals and students working together to find a way to inspire young people across the world to reach for their dreams, not just to inspire the dream but to make it a reality. The Trust will scout gifted young people with bright ideas to help and serve those around them and turn their dreams and passion into a reality. The Trust is dedicated to providing the relevant skills and support, financing gifted young people through the use of a plethora of innovative and yet tried and tested methods including scholarships, mentoring, resource and material, human assistance or capital and investment

Ibbamo Trust Vision And in that place I think about our nation and those who build it. The founders, who somehow rise above petty ambitions and narrow calculations to imagine nations unfurling across our continent. And those like Lincoln and King, who ultimately laid down their lives in the service of perfecting an imperfect union. And all the faceless, nameless men and women, slaves and soldiers and tailors and butchers, constructing lives for themselves and their children and grandchildren, brick by brick, rail by rail, calloused hand by calloused hand to fill in the landscape of our collective dreams. In that process we wish to be part of it, our hearts filled with the love for our continent. Adapted words from Barack Obama in his book The Audacity of Hope

Ibbamo Trust mission

Ibbamo Trust Goals

• To bridge the gap between students with a vision and the governmental and professional sector. • To create a platform of opportunity. • To agree and implement real change.

Ibbamo Trust aims to harness the power of young people and their ideas; we believe it is important to not only entertain young people in our societies but to begin the work of engaging them and their ideas. When 17-year-old Robert Heft proposed his American flag class project, it was graded as a B-. After discussing the grade with his high school teacher, Stanley Pratt, it was agreed that if the flag was accepted by Congress, the grade would be reconsidered. Heft’s flag design was chosen and adopted by presidential proclamation after Alaska and before Hawaii was admitted into the union in 1959. According to Heft, his teacher did keep to their agreement and changed his grade to an A for the project. At Ibbamo Trust, our goal is to assist young people to channel their raw talent into ideas that will benefit tomorrow’s communities.

IBBAMO AFRICAN SCHOOLS TOUR

What is it? African schools tour is a project being run by six students from the United Kingdom and South Africa; they have volunteered their services and expertise in the area they are studying to give their skills to students in various schools. The tour is visiting six countries; Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Ghana and South Africa over a seven month period. The project was launched in Zimbabwe on March 16th 2009.

The tour will visit 30 schools in each country, bridging the gap between top students and top professionals, ultimately creating opportunities for students to get their foot in the door and professional to recruit the best innovative thinkers in their countries. Through a debating process students will address issues concerning their well being in each community, country and continent and come up with solutions to their problems.

Our Mandate To improve community engagement and cohesion through voluntary service by participating students

To find innovative solutions to social problems by creating a forum for participating schools to share best practice and debate the issues

To create annual cultural exchange opportunities with students in other countries around the world

To involve each participating country in a debating tournament leading to the opportunity to debate with a high-profile politician on national television alongside top debaters from around the world

What is the message? The school’s program rests upon the belief that there is much unearthed potential throughout the African Subcontinent, both in terms of resources and human talent. Each individual has the capacity to make a considerable impact upon the unfolding African landscape, especially within one’s own country. The program aims to establish a platform for productive discourses which will help facilitate the spread of ideas amongst Africa’s most promising talent. 8

The program will highlight the capability of the young generation to impact the future of their respective nations and establish a debating network and circuit which will support them and help them harness their skills for the development of their country.


What benefit is this to the students?

A common Endeavour

Finding innovative solutions through debate

Uniting like-minded people across Africa

Bringing the country’s intellectual and political communities together

Students in the same school get to work together weekly to serve their local community, building a strong union and a solid support network.

Model based on the successful ‘Debating Matters’ tournament designed by the Institute of Ideas in the UK where a series of debates culminating in the best African students debating in front of their Presidents followed by debates at ivy league universities.

Academically gifted students in each school work with counterparts from other schools in Africa to better their communities, country and to exchange best practice.

Students and professionals in the country are given a platform to work together to progress the work of the country. The event at the end of the month brings together all top students and top professional to not only meet each other but be in the presence of the leaders of the country putting their points across.

(For example, a group of students from the same school will join each other every Sunday to go to the local hospital and help feed the patients)

FORMAT OF THE TOUR

10

Week 1

Week 2 & Week 3

Week 4

“Securing the support of inspirational leaders”

“Debate Matters”

“Inter-schools Service Conference (ISC)”

Using the Minister of Education as our main point of contact we will visit 30 schools chosen by the minister informing them of the programme and building networks with headmasters, students and their teachers. We plan to establish relationships with prominent figures throughout society, including those in politics, medicine, NGO’s, business and entertainment. These high-profile and influential individuals will be invited to visit participating schools and attend an “Inter-schools Service Conference (see page below)” at the end of the month, to be hosted by the state at a top school or similar venue. We also hope to get the support of the leaders in being patrons to the schools.

Visiting 3 schools a day, for 5 days a week. Each visit will be accompanied by one of the role models we would have identified in week 1 so the students get to hear the message from inspirational role models. Students will receive training to help them systemize and co-ordinate debate in their schools and channel debate matters to coming up with solutions for problems concerning their schools, communities, country and the continent as a whole. To ensure the long-term sustainability of the program, all participating student captains and lead teachers will be trained on how to continue the program after week 4.

Hosted by the Minister of Education, with President/VicePresident as guests of honour. The conference will consist of a dinner and presentations by students on problems they are facing today and their ideas on addressing their concerns. Students will also raise ideas on the way forward in making their communities better for young people of tomorrow.

After we leave the country, the schools will follow the program template and once every 3 months we will visit to check on the progress - but the emphasis is putting the power in the student’s hands. The pilot is taking place in Zimbabwe with the hope that if we can prove the program to work in Zimbabwe where schools have been hugely disturbed by political and economic issues we can make it work in countries more stable.


How do we pick the schools?

What good is a “Service Certificate”?

What is the purpose of the Inter-schools Service Conference (ISC)?

For the purpose of the 6month pilot the schools will be picked with the counsel of the Minister of Education.

Accreditation- A service certificate endorsed by ministers of education from respective countries as well as official partners and sponsors. The certificate is given to those who complete 159 hours of voluntary community service in a year (3hours a week). To the students who are outstanding in service a “Gold Award Certificate” will be presented to them at the Presidents schools dinner at the end of the year for outstanding students in the respective country.

To bring together the students we have worked with during the school visits and get them to meet and also get the role models to meet each other, then both groups to meet and discuss practice that can help move the country forward, we also launch the Service Certificate that the students will be aiming to achieve as they do their service. The students will get to show what they have learnt since we met with them and be inspired to keep going forward.

The certificate is a way for the government to acknowledge the service the students have provided. It will supplement the students’ CV demonstrating their contribution to their community and country, with the endorsement of the top businesses and organizations in the country that the students are likely to want to apply for a job with. The Service Certificate will also serve as a point gainer in chances for the students to take part in the 2012 London Olympics Cultural Activities, 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2010 Commonwealth games in Delhi India.

The Power of Ideas Ibbamo Trust does its work because we believe in the power of ideas. We believe it is the ideas of yesterday that created how we live today and it will be the ideas of today that create how we live tomorrow. Ibbamo Trust also believes in the power of young people and their ideas, we believe it is important to not only entertain young people in our societies but to begin the work of engaging them and their ideas.

Meet Acie Marshal whose dream has birthed Ibbamo African Schools Tour

My name is Acie Marshal, I believe many are called but only a few are chosen. In 1989 I was born to a mother and father who would both never get to know me. Growing up in Epworth, Harare (Zimbabwe) there was no telling what line of trouble I would end up in when I grow up, but you could be almost guaranteed you would fall into a line of trouble. I was raised being taught that everything around me existed because someone else had an idea, so ideas I always had plenty of; most of them where about how I can make life easier for those around me. At the age of 7 I got involved in gang troubles and found myself serving 7 years imprisonment for a crime I was never tried for. At 14, I came out of prison and was committed to making enough money to feed those around me at the cost of those who had plenty. I lead a gang of street kids who like me had no parents or where leaving under vulnerable conditions. We stole, we ran, we won and lost, we did whatever we had to do, so that we lived as close to normal to the rest of the country. Trouble only breeds more trouble. At the age of 14, I was shot and left for dead by a rival gang member. It took Gods grace for my mother to relocate me and find a way to fly me out of the country to Helsinki, Finland then Birmingham, England for treatment and rehabilitation.

Five years since then my life has made a complete turnaround. I am the House of Lords leader for the UK Youth Parliament, representing the views of all young people across the regions of Britain. I have 5 A grades at A-Level and l am a Harvard student, but most important to me I am in Africa as I write this. I am back in Zimbabwe, the same country that almost denied me and I am now working on a dream I have; to see more opportunities created for young gifted Africans. My dream for Africa is coming to life because I came across Ibbamo Trust who chose to believe in my idea, in my ability and in my talent through Ibbamo African Schools Tour. Many shall be blessed.

In the next 5 years I see myself completing my degree at Harvard University and coming back to Africa to help rebuild and repair the continent. I believe many are called and a few are chosen. Which one I am does not really matter, what I do with either will define me best. I look at where I am to today and where I am going. The only way I can believe it, is because it is my life. I do not know how else I would be able to comprehend it.
