Reaching out

 By reaching out into the communities and showing that there are still people that care about the wellbeing of the lessor fortunate, we would like to set an example and encourage other companies to also open up their hearts and pockets to the poor and needy.

There are so many different non-profit organizations in the world trying their utmost to provide in the elementary needs of the poor and needy people. Our Board of Directors elect to sponsor one or more community upliftment projects per annum.

Keith Bothongo Foundation scholarship students graduate

The University of Pretoria (UP) is proud of the fact that its alumni include students who were awarded bursaries by the Keith Bothongo Foundation. The first two students who benefited from this programme graduated during this year’s autumn graduation ceremonies. Keoagile (Louisa) Montwedi graduated cum laude after completing one of UP’s most notoriously rigorous degrees, namely BCom (Accounting Sciences). Kamogelo Legane completed the same course successfully.

Keoagile, who wishes to qualify as a chartered accountant, plans to pursue an honours degree in Accounting Sciences. She is relieved and happy that she passed cum laude. Kamogelo will also proceed with an honours degree and is very grateful to the Foundation for making it possible for him to study.

These two students had to be committed to their studies and work hard to excel in a challenging tertiary education environment, and this would not have been possible without the support of the Keith Bothongo Foundation.

The computer training centre is the first of its kind for a primary school in Botswana. Among other things the fully furnished training centre is equipped with 24 desktop computers, laser printers and nine uninterrupted power supplies and a data video projector.

Founder of The Keith Bothongo Foundation, Mr Keith Bothongo handed over the equipment at a special ceremony where Coordinator of the Botswana Education Hub Lucky Moahi gave the keynote address. Acting District Commissioner (DC) Obakeng Sethumo, the village leadership as well as local officials from the Department of Education also attended the event that was characterized by traditional music.

Mr Bothongo, who has business interests in both South Africa and the United Kingdom (UK), launched the Keith Bothongo Foundation in 2011 . This non-profit making organization was founded to formalize the sponsorships that Mr Bothongo had undertaken on an ad hoc basis for many years.
