Botswana: CAAB donates computers

According to an article published on Daily News, Civil Aviation Authority of Botswana (CAAB) on August 27 donated 12 computers and six printers to some schools in Kgalagadi South constituency.

Each of the six schools will get two computers and a printer. Four schools in Tsabong; Nhake Primary School, Seetelo Primary School, Tsabong Primary School and Tsabong Junior School benefitted from CAAB benevolence. Also on the list were Ikaneng Primary School of Maubelo and Kolonkwaneng Primary School of Kolonkwaneng.

Speaking at the donation ceremony, CAAB chief executive officer (CEO) Retired Major General Jefferson Tlhokwane said he expected that beneficiaries will be inspired to reach greater heights. He also said children should be introduced to computers and information technology at a tender age because IT was a greater package of the modern life.

Thus, he said children from what he termed ‘a previously disadvantaged district’ should be taught IT so that they could catch up and keep abreast with the global community. However, he said there was a need for an enabling environment for the children to achieve the feat.

Furthermore, he highlighted that their donation was befitting since it was done at a time when the country would be commemorating Vision 2016 at Tshane, a historic village known to have been a colonial outpost. District commissioner, Mr Moemedi Letina said the CAAB donation was clear indication that Batswana lived the tenets of Vision 2016.

Mr Letina also said by donating computers to his territory, CAAB was contributing to the pillars of a compassionate, just and caring nation as well as that of an educated and informed nation. He added that for Botswana to attain the Vision 2016, all should contribute however small because put together all efforts would give birth to a greater achievement.

Regional education director, Mrs Grace Motshabi-Rammekwa said education in Kgalagadi still faced challenges. Mrs Motshabi-Rammekwa however, pointed out that with computers, the region was set to deliver some improved results.

She highlighted that computers were currently a critical component of education. With electricity, many schools are set to get computers so that children could benefit from IT. ENDS
