How can I help my hopeless country?

Dear Editor,

I just want to say something. This piece on your site on hunger in Kano has only one comment. This tells us something about what is important to us as Nigerians, yah or nay?

What I really want to know is what I can do to help.  Sometimes, despite my hopes and dreams for my homeland, I can’t help but feel like the situation is hopeless. I guess it doesn’t help that I have been away for about 10 years straight. What can we the young do to help?  Where do we start? Who do we talk to?  We have ideas but if I am to believe the folks around me, that travel back home frequently, I would be committing career suicide if I moved back or even tried to do something at home. My heart feels so heavy.

Yours Sincerely,
