My technical background is in electrical engineering and having previously worked for a private mining company at operations at Jwaneng, in maintenance and projects for several years, I have now been currently working for an international development and financing institution based in Gaborone for some years. My role primarily focuses on implementing tasks along the Bank’s project management cycle and supporting strategy formulation, developing and maintaining relations with clients and partners, and monitoring of the ongoing portfolio.
Through my work, I have gained exposure and insight over the years, on challenges that affect development and the constraints that have persisted in constraining achievements of national development goals. This has resulted in glaring disparities on equitable growth, poverty reduction and income inequality, and impacted by, but not limited to, poorer outcomes in human capital development, lower levels of infrastructure that drives and facilitates economic growth. When you travel within the region and continent, you see how much work still must be done to address rural livelihoods of children and women.
Being part of Learn to Play, resonates with my passion for development. Contributing to an area such as early childhood development, really touches on the core fundamentals of how through education, children, women and families can be given a basic chance to change their outcomes in life. I would like to support by bringing experience of practices of how to implement development projects.
My hope, is that Learn to Play, positively contributes to raising awareness and opportunities to improve impact on early childhood development.
