African universities overcrowded, falling apart - The Boston Globe

African universities overcrowded, falling apart - The Boston Globe:
"Africa's best universities, the grand institutions that educated a revolutionary generation of nation builders and statesmen, doctors and engineers, writers, and intellectuals, are collapsing.
They are victims of overcrowding, too little money, mismanagement, and trends in international development aid that have favored primary education over higher learning even as a population explosion propels more young people than ever toward the already strained institutions.
The decrepitude is forcing the best and brightest from countries across Africa to seek their education and fortunes abroad and depriving dozens of nations of the homegrown expertise that could lift millions out of poverty."

This is something that Campus Crusade can do something about and we in the Northeast are starting to ask how.
