The 2022 Giving Tuesday campaign to invest in education in Botswana was a success thanks to the generosity of numerous donors, and support of Sisters, Associates and staff.
Giving Tuesday, held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a national day of giving in which we can reimagine a world built upon humanity and generosity. On this day, citizens are asked to give back by donating their time or monetary support to important causes.
This year, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth’s campaign focused on investing in the professional training of teachers and the education of young children to help transform communities in Botswana. The goal was to raise $9,350 to help train four women in early childhood education courses, allowing them to potentially find teaching positions at St. Bakhita Preschool in Kanye and St. Mary’s Preschool in Lobatse.
Every child has the right to learn. Without quality education, children face considerable barriers to employment and earning potential later in life. They are more likely to suffer adverse health outcomes and less likely to participate in decisions that affect them – threatening their ability to shape a better future for themselves and their societies. On Nov. 29, 2022, our donors came together for a common cause, transforming the world through radical generosity and allowing this goal to be met so that more doors are opened for these children and families in Botswana.
To our donors: In all that we are and do, you are with us. For that, we are forever grateful.
