Mmogo Centres for Community Development

In this new programme we are establishing centres for development, initially focusing on two key areas of need in rural areas of northwest Botswana: early childhood development and the upliftment of women.

In Shorobe, we have started with the Learning Tree Centre for children between the ages of 3-5.  This centre opened in conjunction with Tawana Lodge on 01 May 2024. The centre aims to provide foundations for early learning and nutrition.

By the end of 2024, this centre will also host educational activities for women in the late afternoons. This will include not only skills development but also awareness of rights, information on sexual health, and a connection to opportunities for additional training and future employment.

In Moreomaoto Village, this programme is giving women a chance to be financially independent by becoming self-employed. Here they are taught how to earn their own income, get more involved in the community, invest in their health care, and send their children to school.

By selling their beautiful arts and crafts, this initiative also empowers these rural women to gain financial benefits from conservation, while helping to preserve critical corridors for wildlife through these creative and entrepreneurial initiatives.
