Empowering Women and Girls

When one female is educated, it transforms an entire community.

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are investing in the professional training of teachers and the education of young children to help change communities in Botswana.

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth’s campaign for professional teacher training and early childhood education in Botswana has been a resounding success. This funding is providing women with professional training in early childhood education, enabling them to teach at St. Bakhita Preschool in Kanye and St. Mary’s Preschool in Lobatse as well as provide tuition assistance for students.

This initiative is more than just an investment in education; it is a step towards transforming communities. By enhancing the quality of teaching and learning at these foundational stages, we are setting children on a path to lifelong learning and success. The impact of this campaign extends beyond the classrooms, as educated children grow into adults who can contribute positively to their societies. We are deeply grateful for the support that makes this transformative work possible.
