1:36 pm
primary aim is to guide them improve their conditions assist somebody help somebody yes everybody is complaining everybody is talking about this is there this is then so if you have the opportunity i think i should in this office i've got education i've got knowledge i have something to do with my home and so i go back home i have couple of businesses in my mind already i want to become a big fan and to bring out. one of james's business ideas came from the finest chocolatier in ukraine. he loves the beautifully packed prevailing winds and dreams of opening a shop like this in his homeland. where do you can get this chocolate from when you begin to cook you from. profiting from god
1:37 pm
. yes from god so if you can produce seeds there then. we have we help the country's economy. we're going to have. we have sugar we have all the fruits and then you can make this one of the flavors too it's called. something like something like something like something like coke or to give you different flavors. the young people have learned a lot in ukraine and. they enjoyed. market banter and the vendors who appreciate their company are happy to reward their haggling with good prices and even a present. harriet's days cleaning toilets are long gone. she now manages the african angel organization. she's delighted to see how well the children have turned out. for this
1:38 pm
in depth stand their independence and they're confident they have chances and i think. this they know exactly what to expect that makes me happy and proud no one can push them around and wish me luck i know exactly what they want to see and over the. next year james and richard are set to be the first in the group to graduate. and always be grateful to harriet for giving them such a great start in life. that. they came. to a notion that. what can be done when the highly skilled of a country move abroad taking that knowledge with them according to recent statistics brain drain robs africa of as many as one third of its professionals each year on their talents a solely missed. to bridge the skills gap africa's institutions recruit
1:39 pm
professionals from abroad including scientists and jenny is. one of which costs the continent four billion u.s. dollars each year. and yet very few highly skilled africans are returning home. side is sometimes amazed by what he's managed to achieve the architect has just won a contract. designed this hospital in his home country of malawi one of the world's poorest nations sixteen years ago he left malawi for england he couldn't imagine a future for himself here. malawi is quite a challenging country in terms of economy and business but when you're dreaming big . to do big projects. and they learn from the bank it's almost like
1:40 pm
impossible where the interest rates are so high so huge. in my case what i've done is like to start small. back in malawi saya founded his own company in a rundown industrial area of long way. and missionary he ran a photocopy service. the business was a success despite the fact that half of malawi's population lives on less than a dollar a day side began printing t. shirts and then got his first major contracts with the profit he set up his own architecture firm my own still developing so there are some things that. you're ok. doing that maybe it's for the past seven ten years but if you bring them home you might be a new thing and maybe that might be a new business idea. this is
1:41 pm
a gene see in johannesburg south africa helps africans return after studying abroad it has a database of highly qualified africans who've gone overseas its clients are african companies that are looking for well qualified employees who know the continent well nearly three quarters of african graduates work abroad. angel jones says her agency has brought back around a thousand people though the reason for returning often extends beyond the promise of a good job. when i get up. every morning when i get up i sit. for both the candidate and angel there's a lot more going on here than just a business business on the continent in africa it's a lot about relationships relationships relationships so they want somebody who might be international and have been there for ten years but they've still got
1:42 pm
those key people on the continent who got those relationships for new business development. to market for all of those different there. is someone that has these kind of contacts and a good job as an engineer but when he travels by taxi through zimbabwe's capital harare he's clear about why he wants to leave the country zimbabwe is in a financial crisis and those who get the chance to leave usually do so. there are a part holes everywhere even here in the capital and in the cities suburbs money is exchanged state debentures are now the new currency though many shops only accept u.s. dollars i don't know from my sofa i live for my children yeah when i look at the education standards in zimbabwe the great bed in this a lot of that i guess right now with this situation is and i was just like most
1:43 pm
like into mark. shelton is one of zimbabwe's well educated young middle class he says his country is in a mess he's been planning to leave for months many of his former colleagues have already gone and while he and his wife and their two sons lead a relatively good life here they dream of more ideally they'd like to move to australia but they have also considered canada or germany. the senate is a good and made provision. and it would you say. the figure that i would be able to save in that means i'll be able to have a sit in for me for investment for my children and in the same time i will be able to if their opportunities i'll be able to start my own business shelton says he can't see any chance of that happening in zimbabwe he says no agency in the world
1:44 pm
could convince him to stay or even return later in life. architect's mundo on the other hand says returning to malawi has definitely been worth it for him and he says he didn't need an agency to convince him to return home. it was his wife joan who gave him the courage to come back when he left for england she chose to remain in malawi people have been killed by what he's doing so they were getting paid and their families are being supported because of what these do we have been here is there i think all these people. and to him i don't know. yeah. joan and sign are sure their future minds in malawi and they believe that ultimately it's africans themselves who will make a real and lasting difference to their country's struggling economies.
