Koketso and Andanla.mobi are expected to benefit massively from her acceptance into the Obama Foundation because she will have the opportunity to connect with other activists from across the globe.

Briefly.co.za gathered that the programme is a two year all-expenses-paid opportunity granted by the Obama Foundation. The aim of the programme is to connect social activists from across the globe and drive positive change at a grassroots level.

Koketso said: “This is a good opportunity I believe there is so much to learn from what’s going on globally.”

The Obama Foundation was established by Barack and Michelle Obama with the aim of inspiring people to change the world in positive ways.

The Obama Foundation said: “From leaders who are already making an impact, to people who are interested in becoming more involved, but don’t know where to start, our goal is to make our programs accessible to anyone, anywhere. We’ll equip civic innovators, young leaders, and everyday citizens with the skills and tools they need to create change in their communities.”
