Olerato Keegope



Olerato uses advocacy, active citizenship and meaningful youth engagement to promote sustainable development in Botswana through strategic partnerships with the government, development partners and civil society organisations. She currently coordinates a programme called Let Youth Lead at Sentebale - an organisation that offers psychosocial support to young people living with HIV.


Box 4 Change is a grassroots development project that uses boxing and leadership training to advance the social well-being of children and young people (10-24 years old) in Botswana. Built on a foundation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Olympic Values Education Programme, the project promotes fitness, cultivates a learning spirit, instils discipline and creates an environment of learning through fun and peer interaction. Through a series of leadership and social asset building sessions paired with sport (boxing), Box 4 Change participants are ensured confidence, discipline, physical and mental strength.
