Botho University adopts francistown schools

Botho University continues to demonstrate its social responsibility in various communities across Botswana. Recently the institution adopted Borolong Primary School and Satellite Primary School as two of the 20 primary schools to be supported towards improved literacy among pupils. Botho University recently renovated the Satellite Primary library and donated computers and stationery.

This exercise is part of the University’s ‘donate a school initiative’ after its public announcement to adopt 20 primary schools across Botswana. The noble gesture was a means to award the highest performing pupils, as Satellite Primary School was celebrating 50 years of existence. The activities of the day included re-painting the school library, replacing curtain rails, and donating computers, printers, chairs and stationery. Botho University staff members and students attended the event.

Upon receiving the donations, Borolong Primary School head Mrs Catherine Tshokolo thanked Botho University and promised that the donations will solely be used to aid pupils’ learning. On his part, Village Development Council chairperson Mr Madzonga heaped praise on Botho University for having adopted Borolong Primary School and said it was indeed a blessing in disguise, as they had felt neglected over the past 15 years.

In his closing remarks, Rapulana ward headman Mr Zechariah Molema advised the teachers to ensure that the donations and refurbished facilities are taken care of in order to benefit the students in the long run.
