"If I want to encourage young
people back home to get to where I am,
I have to be an example."
“Now my son will have the opportunities
to make his dreams come true.”
“Today I work in a male dominated work force.
My father would be so proud of me.”

Kealeboga Jawe


Following a dream

As a curious child Kealeboga Jawe would watch the men in her rural North West community leave home to head to work in the mornings, while she, her mom and sisters stayed home.

Her father, also her mentor and educator, inspired her love of engineering and encouraged her to never give up on her passion.

Undeterred by the challenge and following her father’s untimely passing, Kealeboga continued to follow her dream and recently completed her training in Instrumentation at the Artisan Training Institute.
