BDC provides shelter for 10 families at Ramotlabaki

PROJECT AMOUNT: P100, 000.00

Date: 9 September 2011

Botswana Development Corporation’s (BDC) staff members on the 9th of September 2011 went on a work-camp trip to Ramotlabaki Village, North East of Mochudi in the Kgatleng District.

This trip was part of BDC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities in conjunction with the BDC Social Club to help construct toilets for residents of the village.

In 2010, BDC constructed 10 one roomed houses for 10 families that were affected by devastating floods in the area in 2009 that left many families without adequate shelter.

Speaking at the event, CSR Chairman Mr. Simon Meti reiterated that after the houses were built, it  became apparent that these families also needed toilets and committed BDC to building the additional necessary toilets which cost P10 000.00 each.

The event was attended by the Chairman of the Kgatleng District Council, Mr. Steven Makhura, BDC staff members and a number of the locals who were keen on helping out with this initiative.
