99FM – Your Inspiration Station

Academic Excellence and Personal Leadership

Martha Hatutale shares her journey to becoming a Process Engineer in this special MYD episode brought to you by The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation.

The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation sets out to cultivate the entrepreneurial potential of students in the SADC region.  

And as a first step, this is done by offering scholarships to high school learners who are in financial need, have a curious entrepreneurial mindset and are high academic achievers. 

MYD sat with Martha Hatutale, Process Engineer at the Tulela Processing Solutions who shares her journey with the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation and the entrepreneurial and leadership skills she gained through the program. Because as with the Scholarship programme, personal leadership and academic excellence are central to the Foundation’s Fellowship programme.
