Two Africans who are so concerned about Africa's 'brain drain' have raised the following questions/suggestions:
"When we talk about Increasing African Human Capital different ideas come to mind. In regards to education, would an Ivy League school like Princeton, Yale or Harvard benefit on having a location in Africa ? Would this keep Africans in Africa ? What would keep educated minds in Africa ?"
"The best AID to Africa would be education. The presence of a top tier school in our region (e.g. Harvard University) will go further than billions of dollars in terms of improving African Human Capital in the long run. Africa has the precursor to success (the brain), all that is needed is a place to nurture them. In ... it was said, “teach a man to fish instead of giving him fish”. In addition to that, the presence of such an institution in such a location will give an opportunity to more people. It will help stimulate economic growth and start planting seeds for our own 'silicon valley'"
