2016 is a big year for our country, it is a time frame that we use to measure our progress in the past 50 years that we have been independent. Young people have also played an integral part in the development of this nation, henceforth, it is equally imperative that they get the recognition they deserve. Mail & Guardian Africa, and Gabz FM are collaborating to celebrate young Batswana who contributed in their respective fields for the development of this country.
As part of the partnership, these two media giants will tell the stories through the journey of the past fifty years, in the sights, sounds and people that Botswana has created since 1966. In recognition of the youth, M&G Africa and Gabz FM will host a Change Makers Summit and Gala dinner, which will feature brilliant Batswana minds in diverse fields in the country.
