In a collaborative effort to raise funds for those injured by wildlife, the Botswana Golf Union (BGU) and the Okavango Wildlife Human Conflict Foundation signed a Memorandum of Understanding binding the two organisations together to work for a just course.

The signing took place on Friday morning at the Stanbic Bank Gaborone Golf club. The collaborative efforts come as the BGU plans to take golf to the remote communities and erase the perspective that the golf sport is just only for the elite.

Speaking to Sport Monitor, BGU president, Modiri Phuthego said, “In an effort to make golf more accessible, my organisation saw it fit to extend the sport of golf to communities that have little to no access to the sport." Meanwhile, the director and founder of Okavango Wildlife Human Conflict Foundation, Kenosi Kamina explained that their main interest is to find ways that his organisation could compensate those injured during conflict with wildlife.
