Lebalang Molobele is one of the first Sapinda Rainbow Ambassadors and participated in the 2013-14 edition of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.
Born in 1992 in Soweto near Johannesburg in South Africa, it is Lebalang’s dream to work for the United Nations and to open a legal counselling centre in Soweto with the goal of educating people about their basic human rights, providing advice on the importance of having a will and helping with conveyancing and notary services.
Lebalang holds a BA in Public Management and Governance from the University of Johannesburg. During her studies, Lebalang and a group of her friends started a society named "Public Governance Society", which enabled her to become part of the Women's Parliament. As a secretary of the society for two years, she learned a lot about community development and volunteering. After her graduation in 2013 and in parallel to her trainings for the Clipper Race, Lebalang volunteered at the Kganyo Training Institution which helps children with learning disabilities.
Lebalang is one of the front women of The Sapinda Rainbow Foundation and she has shaped the way The Foundation established itself thanks to her positive mind-set, lively character and unrelenting motivation to help people. Lebalang helped set up our office in Pretoria and was Head Representative from November 2014 until January 2016. She is currently studying for a Bachelor of Law degree at the UNISA (University of South Africa). We are very happy that Lebalang continues to be involved in The Foundation as a valued member of our Advisory Committee.
