"There is a financial crisis in the world, and we wanted to see how it affects East African countries in general and Kenya in particular, and what to do to minimize the damage," says GIMI president Joseph (Yossie) Shevel, an expert in economic development.
"We went through every department there and analyzed needs," says Shevel. Meetings were held with a variety of stakeholders, including the Kenya Power & Lighting company, in order to better evaluate the courses that Kenya School of Monetary Studies offers. Topics included the pension policy of Kenya, as well as strategies for commercial banks. GIMI faculty presented the Israeli model of the development of industries and small businesses. The African visitors to Israel, Shevel reports, were "amazed at the banking system in Israel. They visited our Central Bank and other banks, and they want to implement some of what they saw here in banking and management methods." Due to the success of the World Bank-sponsored project, GIMI was asked to prepare a training program for all progressive central banks in East Africa -- Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, Kenya and Rwanda -- to be held in cooperation with the Kenya School of Monetary Studies and the Central Bank of Kenya. This second phase, expected to last three years and eventually to include South Sudan, will begin in late 2013 and will be financed by the five countries' central banks. Heading off a looming crisis "We signed a memorandum of understanding with the Central Bank of Kenya to continue supporting them in capacity-building and analysis of training needs," says Shevel. In a separate project, GIMI officials went to Nigeria's Central Bank recently to meet with its management and identify several areas in which GIMI will devise special training programs. "Nigeria has 170 million people and more than 6,000 employees in the Central Bank," Shevel relates. The challenges facing these African countries are inflation, soaring interest rates and difficulty attracting investors, he explains. The key to all these challenges rests in the hands of the central banks' policies. And they trust the Israeli management institute to show them how to formulate their policies with the overall hope of getting more East Africans off the unemployment rolls. "We can see there is about five percent [economic] growth in all five countries in the last five or six years -- a steady and permanent growth despite the financial crisis. That is a good sign," says Shevel. However, a looming population explosion threatens to curtail that growth unless wise financial moves are made quickly. "Everybody is very concerned that in the year 2050 the population in Kenya will be 100 million and if they don't plan well now, there will be chaos and democracy will be at risk," Shevel warns.

Joseph Shevel, president of the Galilee Institute, balks at the suggestion that the former militants are dangerous. Coming mainly from the Niger Delta, where there is an abundance of oil and human rights violations alike, these citizens emerged as a local militia to sabotage pipelines of big oil companies that were forcibly displacing them from their homes. "Whenever there was an explosion in a pipeline, world oil prices went up. The government granted them amnesty and allocated land to each one of them; they surrendered their weapons to get the land. Since they only know how to shoot and not to be farmers, we have to train them," says Shevel.
In the course of the training sessions, paid for by the Nigerian government, the institute teaches a range of skills that can be applied to setting up businesses in fisheries, poultry and dairy farming and agriculture. Back in Nigeria, the government follows up with the trainees to monitor their progress and give additional support.
Shevel says the Israeli kibbutzim housing the trainees have no fears; they have successfully hosted people from 160 countries.
