Shaping minds: Naledi Senior students had a hands-on experience at HB Botswana

HB Botswana recently launched its ‘Future Leader Day’ programme, an initiative aimed at fostering a sense of ownership and inspiring innovation amongst the youth of Botswana.

The initiative kicked off with a group of students from Naledi Senior Secondary School, marking the beginning of a nationwide effort to engage and mentor the next generation of leaders. The ‘Future Leader Day’ programme offers basic education schools a unique opportunity to visit HB Botswana’s state-of-the-art facilities and learn about the journey of Botswana’s precious diamonds. Through this immersive experience, students gain first-hand insight into the processes and technologies involved in the mineral transformation journey, while also understanding their significance to the country’s economy.

In a statement, HB Botswana spokesperson, Omogolo Mathumo, said the students from Naledi Senior Secondary School participated in a series of engaging activities designed to spark curiosity and innovation. They were introduced to various aspects of diamond processing and had the chance to interact with young engineers and professionals at HB Botswana. “This mentorship component is a cornerstone of the programme, providing students with valuable guidance and inspiration from those who have successfully pursued careers in the industry. “HB Botswana is committed to investing in the future of Botswana by empowering our youth with knowledge and opportunities,” said Mathumo.
