Botswana: Development in Southern Africa

Follow us online

Katie Nicholson The ACM Botswana program introduced me to challenges I could never have imagined facing while living in the United States. However, it was the challenges of living each day in Botswana that allowed me to become more confident and self-aware. I walked away from my experience with a greater appreciation for my own culture, as well as an appreciation for the culture of the Motswana I interacted with each day. Going to Botswana was the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. The friends I made and the memories I created will carry with me for the rest of my life.
