Mmalesiba is a Bachelor of Science student majoring in Water and Sanitation. Mmalesiba says her family background and her mother motivate her to be dedicated in everything she does.

“I enjoy analyzing water samples at the lab. I am from a village and I want the whole community to have access to good quality water as I have learnt a lot about water and its importance to the economy.
Everyone has the right to good quality drinking water and that doesn’t seem to be the case in most African countries and that continues to be their daily challenge. One day I see myself contributing to better access to clean water in Africa .”
