For entry, students were invited to submit and present IT innovations essential for development. The winning team from Botho presented a system called â Tandabalaâ that is useful for managing the elderly pension fund scheme. The objective of the system is to make it easier for elderly pensioners to access their pension money from any location. The team members comprising of Mpho Ben Motsamai, Givemore Mvumba and Kabelo Bolaane have the privilege of representing Botswana at the Microsoft Imagine Cup global final to be held in St. Petersburg, Russia in June 2013. A great example indeed of what dreams may become.
