In a Human Social Responsibility (HSR) quest, a modern-day concept shifting from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to place more emphasis on giant corporate bodies, BOSETU Gaborone Region role-played on Saturday by donating a variety of items to the Cheshire Foundation based in Mogoditshane on Saturday.

The donations ranged from food items, cleaning materials, and bedding items to nappies and surgical gloves. Speaking during the donation, Senior Administrative Officer Thabiso Simula, responsible for donations, pointed out that the foundation admits children who have physical challenges and disabilities from all over the country. She emphasised that they care for the children including providing physiotherapy without getting any financial assistance from the parents. She added this is done purely voluntarily. Simula further emphasised that since COVID-19 hit, organisations including government that have been assisting the foundation are either no longer able to or have drastically cut back on aid.

This she said, has left the foundation bankrupt and unable to run its affairs. She, however, thanked BOSETU's Gaborone branch for the gesture. Bontle Monnane, the regional chairperson for the Gaborone Region said that when her committee took office in 2021, they resolved that while fighting for the betterment of the welfare of teachers, they, as the Gaborone Region, will also pursue HSR to assist the underprivileged and change how the public views BOSETU, hence the donation and interaction with the Cheshire Foundation. Tobokani Rari, the BOSETU secretary-general, thanked the Gaborone Region for always playing its part in aid further stating that this comes after they embarked on yet another HSR project during which they donated school uniforms to economically disadvantaged students in some primary schools in Gaborone.
