Mr Mphoeng Ofithile gains Masters degree
It is with huge pride that we announce that Mr Mphoeng Ofithile, our first Boyce-Zero Scholarship student, has successfully defended his Masters thesis at an oral exam at the University of Bristol in the UK this afternoon. CONGRATULATIONS Mphoeng.
Mphoeng joined Elephants For Africa in 2008 and developed his Masters plan after learning the ropes and understanding what area of research would be of most interest to him. He has grown to become a very important part of our team and upon his return to Botswana in July will be project leader for our project on the Boteti River.
The Boyce-Zero Scholarship program was started by Elephants For Africa in memory of two passionate conservationists who gave their all to Botswana and her wildlife. The scholarship is aimed at local conservationists to help them develop their career.
