Tsholofelo Setlhoko is one of FIFA’s Women in Football Leadership Programme (https://apo-opa.info/3opdvOy) participants. She has been Manager for Women’s Football in Botswana since 2019. “I love football and I love what I am doing.”
“After the course, we set up a WhatsApp Group and called ourselves the Thunder Sisters. We created that little bond and network. When one of us is facing a challenge, we go back to that group and say: ‘Hey guys, I’m having this challenge, how can I go about this? I’m looking for this document, can anybody assist?’ We are in different continents, but through WhatsApp we can have this supportive chat between each other.”
These positive words were delivered with a smile by Tsholofelo Setlhoko, and they captured just one of many heart-warming moments that the Manager for Women’s Football at the Botswana Football Association (BFA) experienced at the fourth Women in Football Leadership Programme (WFLP), which she attended along with 35 other women from around the world.
“Being invited to the Women in Football Leadership Programme has been of great importance to me as a woman in my country and at the BFA, to further the growth of women in football,” Setlhoko told FIFA.com. “It’s given me an opportunity to grow as a leader. I am feeling more blessed because from the 211 federations, I was one of those selected and am grateful to UEFA and FIFA for the opportunity to be able to assist us and develop us as leaders.”
