The Diamond Trading Company Botswana (BTCB) has given the Botswana Deaf Sports Federation (BDSF) P306,000 for the inaugural National Deaf Games to be held on February 23 and 24 at the UB Stadium.

Speaking at the sponsorship launch in Gaborone this morning, the Botswana Deaf Sports Federation (BDSF), president Shirley Keoagile expressed her gratitude as she said the sponsorship would be a morale booster for the ‘ignored’ section of the sports community.

“Whenever there are international games, we have always been left out. The deaf community is always crying, why we are left out. The sponsorship gives us hope and make us feel part of the community. It is not always about the money but we have to show support to the deaf community. Athletes are there but nobody has stood up. I am grateful that today DTCB has stood up. I promise that the funds will be used for their purpose and we will account for them,” she said. For his part, DTCB corporate communications manager, Kago Mmopi said they responded to a ‘SOS’ call from BDSF hence, they saw the need to lend a hand.
