President Lt Gen. Seretse Khama Ian Khama has handed over a minibus to Camphill Community Trust on behalf of the Lady Khama Charitable Trust.

Speaking at a handing over ceremony, chairperson of the Lady Khama Trust, Mr Dale Ter Haar said his organisation was happy to donate to Camphill as they shared similar aspirations of looking after vulnerable children.

He noted that the Lady Khama Charitable Trust looked after vulnerable women and children, while Camphill took care of children living with disabilities.

Mr Ter Haar said he was impressed by the amount of content in the Camphill website and the fact that they kept their financial records updated hence donors knowing how their funds had been used.

He said the Lady Khama Charitable Trust had donated about P12 million since its inception in 2002. For his part, Camphill Community Trust director, Mr Andreas Groth said he was happy with the assistance they received from the trust.

He said the late Lady Khama used to offer them assistance and that he was happy to see the relationship continuing. Established in 1974, the Camphill trust started from humble beginnings with four children in an old farm building, but today the trust houses 150 children.

He said they would like to visit all areas of the country to ensure that all children with disabilities were given assistance.

Camphill, based in Otse, offerred children education and training and supportsed them in work. Children staredt at Rankurumane Primary School before enrolling at Legodimo Youth Training and finally proceeding to Motse wa Badiri for vocational training before they were reintegrated to their communities.
