Programme intended to prompt discussion on East African affairs.
A map of the area introduces a brief demographic and economic survey - active manpower is the region's main economic asset. The process of change can be directed by education in bush schools, where the teaching is essentially practical, and in the few existing secondary schools, which help to inculcate Western values. Adult education centres teach village chiefs modern government methods, village hygiene and simple agricultural improvements. These latter measures are of vital importance if the land is to support the growing population. Local regulations are easily made, but they must be properly enforced by the local chiefs - much depends on the guidance of government officials. Europeans also provide the large scale planning for projects such as reservoirs and dams, vaccination programmes, and the inoculation of livestock. Africans increasingly accept these measures, but there must now be active participation, eg. African agricultural cooperatives. Europeans can help by "guiding and stimulating" the more advanced. To expect independence in a few years would be "foolishly optimistic", but progress must not be too slow for the new educated class who will wish to participate in building the new Africa.
