Neo Kerebotswe has continued with her initiative of eradicating poverty and restoring the dignity for the less privileged members of the community of Artesia in Kgatleng district. Artesia, also known as Mosomane, is located around 55 km north of Mochudi, along the Gaborone-Mahalapye road.

She handed over some groceries to four families in the village who are living under disheartening conditions. The handover was done at Artesia Customary Court on Monday morning. When addressing the recipients, Kerebotswe said she chose to give those families some food and toiletries since it was the right thing to do.

She explained that even though they were equal before the eyes of God, everyone had his or her challenges that disabled them to reach some aspirations in life. She added that she was born simply to give back to the less fortunate and put a smile on their faces. “When I got here I saw Kemoitiretse Lejone’s living situation. It touched my heart and I decided to do something about it even though it's not much. I talked to the Kgosi about my desire to give back to the Lejone family and he agreed.
