BoFiNet signs MoU with Tlokweng Council
• BoFiNet sponsors needy children
Through its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, the Botswana Fibre Networks Ltd (BoFiNet) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Tlokweng council aimed at identifying needy children to sponsor their education.
“BoFiNet has been committed to transforming and uplifting the lives of children from unprivileged backgrounds in Tlokweng since 2014,” said BoFiNet Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mabua Mabua.
The BoFiNet CEO spoke at great length of their compassionate gesture geared towards making a meaningful impact in the society when signing the MoU with the Tlokweng council on Wednesday morning.
“The upkeep of these children is particularly in their education, basic welfare of food, clothing and social care,” he said.
He said his organisation enrolled the kids in schools and ensure they receive good educational tools and support.
Mabua noted that in 2015, BoFiNet identified and adopted twenty-two of these children.
He added that at the time, the children were day scholars at different schools in Tlokweng and they had to engage the Tlokweng council to facilitate for their education.
He further highlighted that the children’s environment and circumstances prohibited them to attend school consistently and as a result it affected their academic performance.
“A decision was then made to enroll these children in boarding schools in order for them to be in a conducive educational environment with close monitoring of their academic performance,” he said.
The BoFiNet Chief Executive said the MoU was to officially seal the partnership that was already in existence. BoFINET has officially adopted 13 children from underprivileged families.
