Motheo pre-school children in Soshanguve, in the City of Tshwane, were excited after their crèche received an early Christmas donation from the Botswana High Commission.

The jubilated children sang and danced to traditional Tswana music welcoming High Commissioner Zenene Sinombe of Botswana and his staff to their school.  

Among the items donated was office equipment, kitchen and educational material for the children at the centre, computers, office desks, a microwave oven, a fridge and goodies for the children.

Speaking to The Diplomatic Society in an interview, High Commissioner Sinombe said that his high commission acceded to the plea of the Motheo management’s letter, and engaged with the staff on the centre’s needs. He further said the donation was one amongst several Outreach Programmes which the High Commission embarks on annually. “We received a humble letter from the management and we felt it was necessary to contribute to the centre in line with our outreach programme.

“I must add that last year we also contributed to another centre in Hammanskraal,” said Sinombe. In acknowledging the contribution, Motheo’s Committee member Evelyn Maluleka said that the management was elated by the positive response from the Botswana High Commission. She added that the donated items will assist the staff in working much better and caring for the future leaders of the country.

“We are very happy with the wonderful gesture made by the Botswana High Commission to our crèche today. This donation will go a long way in helping us to work efficiently in our office and ease some of our challenges within the facility. Above all, I believe that this donation will serve our future leaders better in caring for their needs while they are still learners in our centre,” said Maluleka.
