Thank you  Jay. I have founded a refugee secondary school this year from scratch with 32 students and by the end this next year we'll have more than 200. On same space we'll start the University courses. The team that complements me has experience in working with State and private education projects like design and technology curriculums, starting new schools in USA and around the world. Together we're developing a global curriculum (education)-2030. We're still developing the curriculum and programs this year. We've got curriculum, program and advisory board committees meeting monthly. We need to develop these details before implementation. Steve Jobs cofounded Apple in his parents’ garage in 1976, without  a degree, was ousted in 1985, returned to rescue it from near bankruptcy in 1997, and by the time he died, in October 2011, had built it into the world’s most valuable company. Along the way he helped to transform seven industries: personal computing, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, retail stores, and digital publishing.

Near the end of his life, Jobs was visited at home by Larry Page, who was about to resume control of Google, the company he had cofounded. Even though their companies were feuding, Jobs was willing to give some advice. “The main thing I stressed was focus,” he recalled. Figure out what Google wants to be when it grows up, he told Page. “It’s now all over the map. What are the five products you want to focus on? Get rid of the rest, because they’re dragging you down. They’re turning you into Microsoft. They’re causing you to turn out products that are adequate but not great.” Page followed the advice. In January 2012 he told employees to focus on just a few priorities, such as Android and Google+, and to make them “beautiful,” the way Jobs would have done. My point is I want to focus and then we'll have great results.

Hi Bailey, thank you for your questions. I'm working with Dr. Martin Rayala , Tamas Simon  and others to develop this project to redesign not duplicate education. The Enso Circle team from USA will be visiting Uganda next year for our first public gathering and fundraiser for the project. The PPT as stated in this post is tentative not final. Starting a University is not really hard everything that has ever started took great effort. I have already refugee students. I started with a traditional secondary school this year that has 32 students. Only 5% of refugees attend tertiary institutions globally, so we are focusing on refugees, though everyone. We will start with 200 students on our existing land provided by UNHCR and  Office of the Prime Minister though we plan to buy bigger land size in future. We decided to redesign our traditional secondary school and start a new university to enroll our own high school graduates. I'm currently enrolled in the EA in-depth Program  to hone my EA knowledge and how to apply it to do good the most. Someone with experience in EA courses and EA movement. Some of the questions you're asking here, are questions we need advice on-in order to develop comprehensive curriculum and programs. Honestly the University will start with EA , design and Tech courses. We're not receiving donations for the school, the website is brand new not shared with donors yet. The  timeline is tentative and we'll update with details in few months from now.
