Barclays Bank of Botswana has unveiled its support for the Maitisong Festival.
The bank is sponsoring theatre productions that will be on show during the festival, aptly titled Pula! Money Matters.
The play has been scheduled to run from the 13th and 18th, and from the 22nd to the 25th of April, all at 1930hrs.
“The play is titled after our national currency, of course, but the title is also derived from the subject of the play which is teaching people about money matters.
We are truly appreciative of our partnership with Barclays on the project, through which Batswana can be both entertained and taught about pertinent issues such as money matters,” commented the Director of aitisong, Gao Lemmenyane.
The play will at a later stage be rolled out at various villages across Botswana, following the Barclays footprint, an aspect which Barclays are particularly excited about.
“Access to information on banking and fi nance remains a challenge in some parts of the country, and through orthodox and unorthodox avenues such as this play, information will be dispersed.
It is a big deal for us as through such initiatives we continue to complement the work and the service we provide through our national network of 43 branches and 101 ATMs,” said the Acting Head of Corporate Aff airs for the Bank, Grace Mosinyi.
