yes donald trump and flooding your pollutant now we're too far documentary analyzes the difficult relationship between russia and the u.s. and between their presidents how does their rivalry and their dangerous mutual admiration affect the rest of the world to some bullies trump and putin starts august 3rd on d w. in northern sudan for centuries people have lived in this area region eking out a modest living despite all odds but it is being buried under more and more sand blowing off or sorry. residents of this village trying to protect their homes but it's an uphill battle.
and it is a duck i think if you dig down 3 or 4 metres you'll find the house. i live in the well is down there to. the house is totally covered. and that's the rule for. some families have built 3 more stories on top of their original homes in less than 20 years everybody is battling the sand. there with their building as though they were that it started with this crack the entire wall could collapse these wooden joists are all that's keeping the house together i had to move into the new house over there. a number of villages have moved away those still here don't know where to go
fertile land is scarce in sudan no one expects any help from the government in the distant capital khartoum. and there we are the forgotten people life is hard in these parts. of. the desert is also taking over entire tracts of farmland. this is the plantation of our own mohammed al hussein he moved here with his family 15 years ago. this is. 3 off the mongol floods is the height of 4 to 5 meter is all of the 4 metre. by the sun. like this a 3rd. i said maybe it is the myth that it's still in the government. he also grows palm trees and has already lost $500.00 of them to the sand the rest will also soon be buried. at the end it's
hard to maintain them. it's hard to water them you need to use a lot of water for it to reach the roots at a depth of 3 metres and. at some point you just feel desperate. and he's one of countless farmers have acted about 70 percent of the arab land in sudan is in danger of being swallowed up by the desert. and the region is frequently percent by sand storms known as haboobs. lynn was a lead because we weren't. even sure. how good true but. the
1st time. in the mob out of a while come or how many of the law and engineer hakeem. the 2 men want to plant trees to try to hold back the sand with the help of drums and i think you have 3 minutes the stages the ones. over the rubble but we're developing smart systems and bots capable of going to remote areas that are hard to reach by truck or on foot in order to plant seeds from the air. our project sap smart agriculture pilot will be the 1st airborne system in the world and it'll be made in sudan. it will plant seeds of acacia trees. the t.v. show mash through our lousy young people to showcase their business ideas unlike similar shows in western countries mash roy aims to make
a serious contribution to socio economic development. that your presentation was comprehensive and speaks for itself. i congratulate you on your immense effort. it shows that for young people in sudan there are no limits to hope. and. a car to the capital of sudan it's been 2 years since mohammed and her team won 1st prize on mushroom why it brought them a 1000 euros a lot of attention and new contacts now they're working hard on finishing their prototype drone. but have to pick a show. case here since from the sky with this bay lot
to cover a wide range of the area are all of the village. houses so the moving. acacias are well suited to the task because they grow deep and extensive roots that bind sand and soil and help make it 1st time again. elect probably going to come out. this device in the market. in many other regions of the world it will be easy to find the parts you need to build a drone but in sudan it's a huge challenge. we can buy or sell anything and that's lost ecology. nothing nothing coming must and it's. so. poverty or something like that to bring everything we need we can get help from the the national organization because we are it's with us for the i mean the rain is
going to show. you are being who i classified us to today's. team and mohamed are off to testify their drone in the countryside. there is implying my mind. it's hard to get. by the end of the day it's just a test. ever. that i get in a crash more about those are the. very latest examples. they gave us i think i called my mind. the 2 inventors have been working on the project weekends and evenings for more than 5 years by profession that actually i.t.
at the edge of the city of the headquarters of c.t.c. sudan's largest and grow chemicals company this is where the final selection round is taking place for the latest series of. 24 out of a 1000 applicants have made it this far they have thought up all kinds of projects ranging from an electronic health care card to sustainable textile production. are made i mean up there are teeth the president of c.t.c. set up a televised contest together with the sudanese young businessman's association and the british council they've come up with that if you but obviously that was in the way the whole concept of entrepreneurship at that time was not a known concept and was not one that was at all encouraged so culturally. being one to open area was not part of the sudanese culture and no mother you know would tell
her son or daughter all daughter i want you to go and the for a company and failed you never it's like study be a doctor be a lawyer be an engineer if you friend you know all these ok what can we do then maybe you can go and start. at the beginning it wasn't clear if anybody would be interested in a show like mash or a lawyer. but really from missouri one it was amazing it was not only what about but 5000 participants 55000 applicants in missouri one but then the engagement once it started to go live on t.v. and also should. media you know every one from that person's area or region would be watching and voting and they both so engaged would leave it was a long while disillusioned think it would be like this. in fact masher on has become the most popular t.v.
show in sudan. globally khartoum ranks among the cities with the poorest quality of life it has a population of between 6 and 8w2w of them are people displaced from their home regions because of desertification of the civil war. 60 percent of the country's population are under 30 years of age. many of them don't have any steady employment and trying to get by doing odd jobs. whether young or old rich or poor almost everybody in khartoum knows mash through i . love it i go home as a result of the devil in the show inspired you to work on your ideas in education and plans and to make something of yourself rather than just work for somebody else
. is how it's young people of mind i wish there were more shows like it because the younger generation are in a saudi state they have a lot to offer they just need some help getting started. and. i am one of the people who have been inspired by my choice. they gave me a great push. i want to launch a project that's unique in sudan. and i want to win a trip to london and that's what it is and i know that's what everybody here dreams of. in the couple. to make entrepreneurial dreams a reality is far from easy in sudan the government offers no grant so other kinds of support for startups mash rawya tries to fill the gap it offers candidates workshops on issues such as funding planning and marketing.
she thinking alfie's chain has a small fires going down. so to me the small farm and most of them they don't know the technology and they don't have t.v. so what she thought about we thought that you know the radio will be one of the towns that we can use into reach that. the question is if you're the founder customer who does the farmer frost a farmer cross people they're already buying fertilizer from. the can you identify the people that already buy rivers or from. and if you convince them they will soldier the farmer on your behalf the people attending the workshops here or much more passionate the really want to learn. they're very enthusiastic a lot of questions they want to talk about it a lot and i compare it to be like a sponge and they want to treat it as much water as possible. from your food.
the candidates might be very keen but few have any background in economics management. i thought that i'm going to make my project and be happy and everybody goes back and but i. was just a lot of numbers and procedures business plans and goals and whatever those days shocking i learned a lot actually like the market in i never heard the word i mean never really did before i interrupt mr roy. so that's was. a really big good benefit for me. it was changed by life actually i'm a doctor i have nothing to do is business but when i take this lectures there used to be clear i know how to put my my plan my business done in ohio my budget i know how to track. the addition of interests. matter of oil
is not only about supporting entrepreneurship but also focuses on responsibility and making a positive contribution to society. through the traditional way of the west giving the gift to africa saying here is the money go or do it is not sustainable because once the money runs out the project stops or there is a social from the west people that are fed up of giving money to africa we needed to teach the africans through look after themselves. we're now near the white nile and the south of sudan a world away from khartoum. gardy was the winner of the 1st season of national oil in early 2014. it's not
normal for it dear lady to go to come into this area or is that since cain i'm not saying in the business now it's become for me on the bench area behind a very massive area that's all it's happening and i can't see any of these around so. i'm the only crazy lady who is moving around. the normally works in vocational training for women in cancun but when she heard about a plate up water hyacinth saw on the nile she decided to try to do something about it. we. were very impressed because that's why we were in the blood and i thought that they have to go under the water difficultly i'm really appreciate the good there being pregnant. water hyacinths were introduced to saddam in the 19th century as an
ornamental pool plant they have since become an uncontrollable past. this was going to spread like a funder and it's growing very fast you can imagine that in one week this form with most of like the 25 it's looking very gay she says teams have found it was going to move freely and even though the fisherman cannot use the catch fish it's a good environment for mosquitoes and other part of sides who is living inside the woods oh yeah it's kind of a nightmare for the people here. attempts to cut town the spread of water hyacinths have so far failed even weed killers were simply absorbed by the plant. some oligarchy had the idea of using them as
a free resource to make decorative items back some small pieces of furniture out of their stamps. i think this is the unique about my business is that you don't need an uprising. and it can be very sensible forces can country lead so that. you can see that i'm using such kind of a normal kind of tools you have to go forth kind of felt advance for example tools i'm just using a caesar's not want to spray on you even if you don't haave then you can just play with your hands so it's kind of easy way i mean especially for people who doesn't have a huge capital to tighten business. for an hour she makes the items herself at home in her free time.
gandhi who sells her products on the internet and at a small shop. played here some of the new things that made it they should be on display here. i'm convinced can we make some space for them i can set them up for you cannot have. a quarter of the contestants on mash or on our women and that mark something of a revolution in sudan just a few years ago young women were still expected to marry and raise a family going to college or setting up a business was practically unheard of measure oyo is contributing to a change in social norms and the advancement of women. we are living now in the
kind of the condition that we need the cooperation between we as women and the name for the bitterness of any woman. who was young i used to live you know when women now are very aware of their rights they are looking forward to it's what they want from the life you can see us we are part of the news that we're man and we are proud of that actually. many women have reached out to the t.v. contest winner to tell her she has been a source of inspiration among them a young woman who wanted to drop out of school. after he was from israel she watched my journey doing that's why she decided that i'd have to go for the higher education she won't even to go for the 4 how much their degree. went all the all the problem on the list of those that he faced with her family i think the out there will again is how growing field in higher education and they were about to
give her a range of areas where high before i was in the someone. may have opened new horizons turning a vision into reality remains a challenge the team and mohammed to been trying for months to get a permit to deploy their drones even as the desert keeps advancing like here where trees have been planted as part of the great green. unwalled project. big green belt was a bottled by that sold just a few. straw in every single point every single 30. another problem for the team and mohamed is failing to find an investor to back them project despite their trial can mash arroyo in sedan start ups can't get
funding either from the government or from banks. the 2 want to keep trying. some by we feel like we have to give up to. be a lot of them all. but when we when we. we are by fall and watch somebody i want piercing the jelling face to face. or they are in the fault line every day facing death of a geisha that motivate us we have to take the lead and. guardi has not been able to expand her business either due to the still fragile state of a sudanese economy. many factors were just up to operate due to these sanctions we cannot even get absence to even information sometimes when you get into a website is not available supervision of the country so you can imagine how we are
suffering. meanwhile candidates for the latest series of the show are hoping to make it into the final 12. this team wants to develop an iris scan as a diagnostic tool. thank you i am not among those chosen by the jury to appear on the show some are gardy has come to cheer on the candidates and in this case to offer consolation and encouragement. don't be upset. just keep working on your project. the jury said you should carry on after the contest is over. while mossad from the british council has spent weeks working with
a candidate some projects. when there's a beach boy out of sauza 1000 i became. i wish him the 1st that i hold up they continue to evolve with those older model albums that i actually this race committee is suffering this is. the c 404 for the new generation. that of. several dozen startups have been launched with the help of mash. but for the seeds of hope to sprout and flourish and saddam people will need more than one t.v. show the be. the. nominee.
