TED comes to Arusha

In January, I wrote about the TED conference which was to be hosted in Arusha. Well, it’s on now.

TED is a high-powered talk-fest that attracts the most powerful and influential people on the planet. While their core business is to showcase clever and creative ideas in technology, entertainment and design, in recent years they added heart to their mandate and have taken a humanitarian focus. This conference will be their first in Africa and 1200 delegates and speakers are expected.

I hope that a few of the delegates take the time to follow the famous jellybean buses of St Jude’s back to the school to check out Africa’s most successful project!

In the coming weeks, I’ll check the TED website to see if they have added any of the Arusha talks to the great selection of video presentations online.
