We packed up our goodies including pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, note pads, crayons and plasters. Departed on our adventure to the very beautiful Botswana. After a long journey via Johannesburg we arrived in Gaborone. After a refresh, tour of the city and a meeting at the tourism office the following morning, we departed for Tuli Game reserve. Whilst here we were lucky enough to visit the village of Mothlabaneng and a local school, where we were met by a sea of small faces and singing from the local children. We got to see first hand exactly where some of our donations were being used and the children who were directly benefitting from our efforts.
We continued our journey through Botswana to visit the Central Kalahari, Nxai Pan and on to the Okavango Delta. We then made our second contribution to the Shinde Camp, we met one of the volunteers from the programme they support in Maun, Bana Ba Letsatsi.
Such a small effort can really make a huge difference to the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. We were only allowed 15kgs of luggage for our trip and everyone manage enough of their own supplies with space to spare for goodies for these amazing causes. We were away for 2 weeks so if anyone says it can’t be done I assure you it can!
