"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."

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.
