The national competition was operated as part of a global programme of JCI, a worldwide federation of young active citizens with over half a million members, JCI senators and senior members in more than 115 countries and territories. JCI Botswana is one of the national organisations of JCI.

By recognising these young people, JCI encourages them and others to seek excellence and serve others.

"The TOYP programme which runs annually serves to recognise those individuals all over the world who excel in their chosen fields, endeavours and show commitment to their communities. We also hope that by recognising these honorees we will provide fitting role models for the young leaders of tomorrow," explained JCI Botswana President Prince Bashe.

JCI Botswana sent eight entries to this global and highly contested flagship programme. Masi and Tshepang Mabaila made it to the

top 30. After rigorous judging Mabaila was eliminated, while Masi made it to the top 10. The category that he was entered for and made Botswana proud with is "Personal Improvement and/or Accomplishment"

Masi will be travelling to the JCI World Congress in Hammamet, Tunisia, on November 16-18 on a JCI paid trip. At the congress he will be featured at the TOYP ceremony and awarded the TOYP trophy. After the ceremony, there will be a reception for honorees, special invitees, JCI Board members, chief delegates and community dignitaries. 

This is the first time that a Motswana has won this prestigious award and it is history in the making.

"The Botswana flag will be flying high among the 115 countries that will be represented in Hammamet, Tunisia, because of Masi," said Bashe.
