Student Profile

Seopedi Baitsile, Founder, The Upcycle Project, graduate of Master of Leadership for Development

“The lack of meaningful involvement of communities’ voices and identity in development projects and goals has been a barrier for many decades and it’s one which I hope to help address through studying this course. Not only does it provide the theoretical background about the world’s development challenges, but it is also future-focused and deliberate about making leaders that will serve in various fields of the sector. After completing it, I will have the skills and platform to be actively involved in work that challenges the inequalities and development injustices that exist in my field.”
