Mascom hosts party for vulnerable kids

Christmas came in November for orphans and vulnerable children at the Botswana Retired Nurses Society (BORNUS) Morwa Branch.

Last Friday, Mascom Wireless Botswana hosted a Christmas party for the youngsters as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility.

The event was graced by, among others, Mascom CEO Jose Coucero, Kgatleng East Member of Parliament Mr. Isaac Mabiletsa, as well as Morwa VDC members and the community.

Mascom donated shopping vouchers to the value of P350 per child and also handed over personalized books as Christmas presents in the interest of promoting literacy in the community, giving a gift that shall become a keepsake for a lifetime.

Each beautiful full-colour illustrated hardbound book is made up individually for a child with his or her name, age, hometown and friend’s names into each story.

Create-a-Book personalised storybooks create a love for reading and children will be delighted to read about themselves. These worthwhile books teach children the value of owning books and the books become a keepsake for a lifetime. They also increase the child’s self-esteem, thereby boosting his or her ability to learn.

All Create-A-Books are made with durable wipe-clean hard covers and are suitable for all age groups.
According to the Communications and Public Relations Manager, Tebogo Lebotse, Mascom has been hosting a Christmas Party for orphans and vulnerable children in different parts of the country for the past twelve years. To date various NGO’s in places like Otse, Palapye, Mahalapye, Molepolole, Maun, Ghanzi, Kasane, Mochudi, Mlanbakwena and Tlokweng have benefited from this noble initiative.

BORNUS is a community based organization committed to the prevention of the spread of HIV infections and the provision of care and support to the infected and affected members of the community through advocacy, information, education and counseling throughout Botswana.
