Changing the Life of a Bushmen in Botswana

Education is one of the keys for alleviating people out of the grip of poverty. Empowering people, especially young people to read and write in a native language, enables them to discover the wealth of knowledge locked up inside the covers of books. This is that kind of story.  

" By the fall of 2015, a young man from the San (Bushman) tribe of Botswana, the first of his people to graduate from high school at the top of his class, will be ready to pursue an undergraduate degree in engineering at any university in the world. His tuition will be covered by a national award, granted by the Botswana Ministry of Education for excellence in academics. Ketelelo Moapare is the first San to win this prestigious award and it is all because a library came to his village when he was thirteen years old." - Naomi Krueger. You can read the full story here
