Young People Are the Bokamoso
"Bokamoso had a cloth that wiped my eyes so I could see success."
I am busy pouring the seeds of Bokamoso (the future) in my community. My name is Sekwati Moagamobe, I live in Winterveldt. I live with my Father, Mother, my Sister and my four nephews. We all survive on my Father’s earnings and some social grants from the government.
I passed my high school matricThis is the 12th Grade examination in 2010. I came to the Bokamoso Centre in 2011. I didn’t know what to do or where to begin in trying to further my education. Bokamoso had a cloth that wiped my eyes so I could see success. Bokamoso gave me the wisdom and knowledge so I can reflect on what matters most to me and what do I want to do with my life. I learned to focus on my abilities and not forget either my strengths or my weaknesses.
That’s when I realized that I have passion for traveling, exploring different places and engaging with people to learn different things. That’s when I decided I want to focus on travel and tourism. That’s the major subject I took in my education and I did very well in my studies.
My desire is to give back to the community, and I have already started. I have a soccer team for young boys. My aim is to keep kids away from drugs and crime, to mentor them, to teach them what they need to grow up and be successful. I am busy pouring the seeds of Bokamoso in my community. I am telling others what Bokamoso has done for me and what it can do for them.
