SOS Botswana is also in partnership with the United States Department of Labor in caring for 1100 children exposed to exploitative child labour. This programme provides uniforms for the children, while our staff organise placement in schools and other support in the holidays.
We have introduced family strengthening programmes, operating our Tlokweng and Francistown Villages. These identify needy families in the community, and attempt to keep the children with their families by providing extra support.
For all our work, we depend on public support, both nationally and internationally. Finances are tightly controlled and Audited Accounts are available annually.
We believe we are worth supporting in that we are achieving results. We have seven children at university, including a fith-year dental student, and a young lady who has graduated with a B.Sc. Moreover, we have an additional seven who have won scholarships to Maru-a-Pula School, a local private school.
