We also salute other Batswana, institutions and corporate entities who have in one way or the other showed that they care for others.

The gesture by Lesedi Primary School means that some of the salient values that both government and the nation holds dear are rooted among the people. For example, the Botswana society and its leadership has been at the fore-front of the campaign for a nation of compassionate people. Such a value is encapsulated in the national Vision 2016.
