Botswana ranks among the best places to see wildlife in the world. Maun is the gateway for tourism in the Okavango delta. Since thousands of visitors come here every year, often giving handouts to children, many children have become beggars. They quit school and lose opportunities to better themselves through education.
Bana ba Letsatsi gives these children the life skills they need to return to school. Children learn arts and crafts, gardening, and sports. They go on excursions into the national parks, an opportunity they might never have otherwise. Visitors are encouraged to share whatever skills they possess. Whether these are skills of home-making, craftsmanship or high-tech, they give the children goals and direction. Working on art projects is also wonderful because it instills the children with pride. To be a role model, nothing is required beyond the desire to share your time.
Heart4Africa Safaris is committed to helping Bana ba Letsatsi by donating a portion of all profits. In the short-term, we provide art supplies and other needed equipment. For our long-term goal, funds are being set aside for a computer lab that will also serve as an internet cafe, providing students with work experience, and the center with an income. All donations are managed by an independent, non-profit overseer in the USA.
