Duo Helps Motse Wa Tsholofelo

| May 18, 2015

The Mr and Miss Public Service 2014 king and queen have adopted Motse wa Tsholofelo Day Care Centre in Maun as part of their mandate to help the less privileged.

The duo donated some furniture to the center, which caters for orphans and less privileged children in Maun recently.

Speaking at the event, Miss Public Service Segolame Habana said they got to know about Motse wa Tsholofelo through the Ministry of finance and Development Planning officers who had an initiative of tree planting at the centre.

Ms Habana said it was then that they realised the needs of the centre such as lack of transport for the pre-scholars, who sometimes missed school due to lack of transport.

She noted that they decided to adopt the school as part of their community service project and in 2014, they organized a Christmas Party and graduation ceremony for the pupils, which were successful through the help of local companies such as Kamanga Lodge, Cresta Lodge and Island Safari, which provided boat cruising and food.

Furthermore, Ms Habana said they managed to source funds from companies in Gaborone and the Noble Supplies company has pledged to provide the school with furniture while Naetsillica company has pledged meals of about P2000 monthly and stationery.

The duo said they plan to keep their relationship with Motse wa Tsholofelo even at the end of their reign in June 2015.

“We intend to keep visiting the pre-scholars to spend time with them, to enhance their emotional and physical well-being,” she said.

Ms Habana expressed gratitude towards the Directorate of Public Service Management (DPSM) for the initiative and added the pageant was about maturity and professionalism and not beauty.

She implored other private companies to help towards the realisation of the national Vision 2016 pillar of a compassionate, just and caring nation.

For his part, Mr Public Service Mogomotsi Mogapaesi said it is upon the youth of today to create a conducive environment for young children.

Mr Mogapaesi said people ought to consider the needs of the less privileged in the community, and get involved in community projects.

The North West District Council (NWDC) secretary Mr Mzondiki Moswete thanked the duo for lending a hand to help the needy children, as well Motse wa Tsholofelo management for providing the services.
