"It is custom for Orange Botswana to annually purchase corporate gifts for its partners and stakeholders, as a way of expressing appreciation for their continued support," a statement from the wireless company said."This initiative comes as part of the Orange corporate social responsibility drive to support local entrepreneurs, and this year we will focus on women in business." Last year Orange purchased gifts from women at the Gabane Pottery Centre.The selected local women and or small to medium enterprises will be engaged to design and produce a total of 500 gifts, Orange officials said in the statement.

According to the mobile giant, this year's efforts will be carried out in partnership with Women in Business Association (WIBA) through the Women Entrepreneurship Development (WED) Programme. The WED programme aims to enhance the role of women in the private sector, through capacitating small and medium enterprises in manufacturing such as arts and craft, and textile, food processing) as well as services  such as ICT and tourism)."The chosen entities and individual entrepreneurs are expected to receive capacity and business support in the framework of the WED Programme to deliver the proposed gifts," officials said.Participation in the procurement programme is open to any woman entrepreneur or individual aged 19 and over, as well as women's organisations/companies currently in operation. The gifts must be produced locally.
