MOBILE Network giants Orange Botswana left cheerful faces on Bana Ba Letsatsi Trust in Maun on Friday after donating grocery and toiletry worth more than P5 000 and two computers.
Orange’s Head of Legal and Corporate Aff airs, Lepata Mafa said that it is part of their social responsibility to help the needy whenever they can.
She said that before donating they asked Bana Ba Letsatsi what they were going to need hence the grocery and computers.
“We have been doing the same thing in other areas and we will like to spread our wings and go into settlements which are neglected at times.”
Mafa added that they took advantage of the commemoration of the world Telecommunication and Information Society Day in Shorobe to donate something in the Ngamiland District.
When receiving the goods, Vice Chairperson of the Trust Board Hisham EL- Marazki said that it was an honour for them to be recognised and hope that the Orange gesture was a sign of more things to come from other stakeholders.
“Our children will learn a lot from Orange staff because they are role models.”
He said that the students will be motivated to do well in school to get better lives and donate to schools too to help the less advantaged.
The donation came hardly a month after the Botswana Defence Force’s Muscle Men team’s donation.
Bana Ba Letsatsi Trust is a rehabilitation centre for orphans and vulnerable children.
The school endeavours to keep the children off the streets and away from negative infl uences by empowering them through education and support.
It has more than 250 children whose ages range from three to 25 years.
