Vodacom Lesotho sponsored students at Sepheo School to participate in the 2017 Malealea Monster adventure race, giving them an opportunity to learn endurance and experience success. Vodacom's contribution shows that it's possible to bring Excellence out of Poverty.
Before I left Australia in 2013, I sat in the office of my now-former boss discussing the plans for Sepheo and establishing a culture of excellence out of poverty. I outlined how we wanted to centre our model on a Character and Leadership program, as success is fleeting without the right character. She nodded and matter-of-factly said, ‘you need to add resilience.’
