[Stoves] Fwd: Why I'm introducing the President today:

Lists (especially members in developing countries)

	I listened for about 1.5 hours this AM to the live broadcast below - which was still available a few minutes ago (skip 35 minutes ahead).   I was impressed by both the program described and the roughly half dozen young Africans who were able to ask questions.  We on these lists don’t usually have a way of describing ways that the US can help support young stove and biochar enthusiasts.   This below might be a way.  Today was only about attendees from Africa, but there are other regions (some below) being run through our State Department.   I heard that YALI has 250,000 members.  The Americas and Southeast Asia (and maybe there are others) seem much smaller.  The video below is only for Africa (I think only 2 countries excluded).

	My hope is that those reading this will try to make this program known to eligibles (Age 25-35) - hopefully themselves.  Then maybe we can meet when they are accepted  (as I think their interests will fit in well).

> I come from Uganda -- from a farming community in the countryside where I learned what I know from the farmers I grew up with.
> 
> When I had the chance to complete my education in agricultural science, the hardest decision I had to make was whether to find a new job or return to my local community and teach them a little bit of what I had learned.
> 
> More than anything else, I wanted to see improvement in the livelihoods of the farmers that helped me become the agricultural scientist, pastor, and mentor that I am today. So I returned home to the Arua district in Uganda, and spent years working to pass on the knowledge and skills I had gained.
> 
> My passion is to help bring solutions to the country, and continent, where I grew up. That's how so many of my fellow Africans who are part of the President's Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) feel too.
> 
> And that's why I'm so excited to introduce President Obama to my YALI fellows, and to you, at a town hall today.

> As President Obama knows, the African continent is not only in need of transformational leaders, but leaders who will make the deliberate effort to inspire those they lead to take up the mantle -- particularly young leaders, who are looking for seasoned role models to emulate.
> 
> Thanks to President Obama and the legacy he leaves with YALI, so many of us our are well-poised to do just that.
> 
> So please join us at the town hall today at 3:20 pm ET to hear President Obama's answers to our questions about the future of young leaders in Africa and around the world. <https://click.mail.whitehouse.gov/?qs=31673022fe788d0269c2dcd763a8fb3806dcd363ee5ced7e03da8eee895a6d86212c7a4c5d635ba6>
