Lebogang Profile Picture


Programme: MSc NGOs and Development, 2009

Current Position: Administration Officer and Acting Coordinator, Botswana Substance Abuse Support Network

Country: Botswana|

Getting a job after LSE was not simple as I had no work experience. However, the organizations and individuals that were interested in me joining them were numerous and varied due to my LSE degree. I worked on the inaugural Gaborone City Marathon, fundraising for other NGOs, and also worked briefly at PricewaterhouseCoopers Botswana. I am now happily employed at the Botswana Substance Abuse Support Network (BOSASNet), a local NGO with a mission to lead Botswana to be substance abuse free. I am applying the knowledge and insight I gained and honed at LSE, and continue to liaise with former classmates on matters affecting our work.

With two degrees from LSE I pretty much have my pathway set for anything that I may want to go into, ranging from the banking sector, to the international development field. I am currently training to be an actor. However, my degrees have given me a foundation for literally any field that I may want to go into someday. The LSE name always impresses!
