Botho University Participates in the UNICEF’s 50 Minutes for Children Campaign

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative, Botho University is taking part in the UNICEF "50 Minutes for Children" campaign which was launched on 21 June 2016. The concept of 50 minutes is derived from the 50th Independence Anniversary of Botswana, which will be celebrated on the 30th of September, 2016. The campaign calls out to individuals and various stakeholders to spend 50 minutes making a positive impact on children's lives.

The "50 Minutes for Children" offers a platform for individuals and organizations to share a common vision for the children of Botswana. The campaign aims to inspire, mobilize and share experiences that raise awareness about issues that affect children throughout Botswana. The Botho University Fun Day was scheduled for the 10th of September 2016.

Botho University's 50 Minutes Family Fun Day was held on Saturday 10th September 2016. Activities for the day included quad bike rides, baking lessons, playing on a jumping castle, reading and storytelling, games (traditional and non equipment games), computer lessons, soccer lessons and video viewing. The event was successful and drew over 60 children from the Botho University community. The guest speaker, UNICEF representative for Botswana, Ms. Julianna Lindsey, gave a word of encouragement to both parents and children, urging parents to spend quality time with their children.
