Nagafela does more than just rant about bad results on facebook

Following the recently released BGCSE results and a XX% decline in students’ performance, youth entrepreneur and founder of The Free School, Arnold Nagafela has called on the youth of the country to take action and contribute towards coming up with solutions instead of just talking and complaining on social media platforms.


According to Nagafela, the youth and Batswana at large should be complementing governments efforts by contributing to solutions instead of fighting the system and pointing fingers. “I believe in coming up with solutions instead of shifting blame and pointing fingers. And as the youth of this country I believe that we should be asking ‘what can I do for my country instead of what can my country do for me’ and collaborate with government on efforts to move this country forward,” he said.


Harnessing the power of social media and using it for positive impact, Nagafela recently through a Facebook Status volunteered to sponsor up to seventy students who haven’t done well in their BGCSE exams and are interested in rewriting their BGCSE exams. The post went viral with people coming on board and volunteering to pay for students as well as some offering to tutor them to increase their chances at doing better the second time around.


The 26 year old ‘guy from Kasi’ as he describes himself says he believes that his purpose in life is to change lives, one by one. And through this sponsorship of students, he hopes to afford the selected young people a second chance to improve their marks and make something of themselves.


“My purpose is centred around my faith, I love God and everything that I do and achieve is through Him. And the same way that God continues to love me and give me second chances at life and my dreams, I too want to give these young people a second chance at making something of themselves,” he says.


Following consultation with BOCODOL, Nagafela learnt that this year government has partnered with the school and is offering free seating of exams for all students interested in rewriting their exams this, an effort which Nagafela applauded the government for. “It turns out rewriting exams is free this year according to our source at BOCODOL. So instead of paying for exams I will be diverting the funds to sponsor tutoring for 50-70 students who have registered to rewrite their BGCSE exams,” says Nagafela.


According to Nagafela they are still working on a schedule of how and when they will be making the beneficiary selection and more information would be shared on his Facebook page (Arnold Nagafela) in due time. He however wanted it to be known that each case will be assessed individually and students will be interviewed to assess their eligibility and selection will be based on past performance as well as their affordability with priority being given to underprivileged students.
