BSB, Marumoloa said, executes its corporate social responsibility (CSR) through identifying various projects enriching and uplifting the lives of many people in need across Botswana. 

“Support is offered to promote education, arts and culture, sports and welfare development,” Marumoloa said.

Addressing various education stakeholders during the donation of computers and printers at Mathangwane and Sebina Primary Schools recently, Marumoloa said greater access, utilisation and integration of ICT is a means to improve teaching and learning and a key strategy linked to improving learning outcomes and standard of living.

“Access to computers at an early age is imperative and will therefore enhance government’s objective of meeting the National Development Plans… We hope that these computers will meet the expectations and goals for the two schools,” a jovial Marumoloa said. 

When accepting the donations, the headmistress of Mathangwane Primary School, Alice Sitale said the computers are an important tool that can greatly improve the academic capabilities of both the learners and teachers. 

“We only had one computer and with the addition of these computers from BSB, our job will now become easy. I want to assure BSB that the computers will change the performance of our learners for the better,” a happy Sitale said. 

Giving a word of appreciation, Kgosi Tom Mashungwa thanked BSB for its noble gesture. 

“The world today revolves around

ICT. ICT skills help learners to be easily absorbed by the job market unlike in the past. Your donation will leave a good mark and put our village on the map,” the jovial chief said. 

The headmistress of Sebina Primary School, Kamogelo Dithologo also thanked BSB for its good deed. 

“Computers drive everything in the world today and help in research. The computers have made the world one global village. We hope that they would improve the results of our learners,” an ecstatic Dithologo said. 

Thanking BSB for the donations on behalf of both schools, the assistant minister of Tertiary Education, Research, Science and Technology, Fedelis Molao said the computers and printers would go a long way in enhancing the education of learners. 

“Government alone cannot afford to provide the need of each and every learner.  I therefore call upon different stakeholders in the education sector to also play their role.  There is no small or big donation.” 

“It is our ardent hope that the computers will play a meaningful role in the education of our children. I want to assure you that if your marks improve, BSB will come and give you more because it also wants to be identified with the best schools,” Molao encouraged. 

Molao also donated textbooks to Mathangwane and Sebina Primary Schools.
