ABM University College has pledged P1.2 million to SOS Children’s Villages in Botswana. Speaking at the SOS fundraising gala dinner, the ABM Executive Director, Daisy Molefhi, explained that the relationship between SOS Children’s Villages and ABM University College dates back to 2012 when ABM University College initially made a small contribution towards SOS.

Molefhi stated that in 2013, ABM University College undertook a three week study to establish and understand SOS as an organisation, its mandate, operations and the general perception that Batswana have about SOS. This study was driven by the Community Engagement Department of the college which was led by a social worker and youth worker, the marketing students and their lecturers.
