Teenage social entrepreneur and co-founder of Blackboard Africa, Amonge Sinxoto, continues to be recognised globally as an influential thought leader. 

The BBC World Service asked “thinkers” from across the globe to imagine the most inspirational and meaningful changes that might result from the coronavirus crisis under the “Rethink” title for their Rethink podcast. Amonge is featured alongside The Pope, The Dalai Lama, Caleb Femi, Lady Hale, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Andy Murray and the South Korean foreign minister, Kang Kyung-wha. 

The BBC’s Rethink podcast series are short essays sent in by the likes of academics, philosophers, national security advisers, and poets.
