Amazing things Tebogo's made
Ex-McKinsey Digital consultant with experience in building digital financial and insurance solutions in both Africa and Asia. I am a software engineer by profession and prior to McKinsey, I worked at Allan Gray where I built their client investment tool.

I helped build World Merit into the social enterprise that offers rewards and opportunities in exchange for members taking action against social issues with a presence in over 100 countries.

I was one of the 6 founding country presidents who helped build the organisation from the governance, fundraising and growth strategy to building presence in the global philanthropy community. Today the world merit community has over 1 million youth activists worldwide and a headquarter office in Liverpool, UK.
