fundraising event on 14 November 2009

at Maitisong – Maru a Pula School

with the aim of making donations to Gamodubu family which is deeply impoverished and living under extreme difficulties.

Beneficiary Details – Gamodubu Family

The Sione family which resides in Gamodubu (near Gaborone) is a family of thirteen (13), six adults and seven children, who live in a one roomed house. The mother passed away in November 2008 and since then the family has been engulfed by extreme difficulties. The sole breadwinner who is aged thirty-two (32) is now crippled, speech impaired and he is also mentally disturbed. Amongst the children, there is a thirteen (13) year old girl who grew up a healthy but suddenly got sick and now she too can not walk or talk.  She wears nappies and can not do anything for herself.

There is a fifteen (15) year old who fell pregnant before taking her form three exams and has dropped out of school. The government is only providing the family with food which is however not sufficient to sustain them for the whole month.

 

..

  Without your generosity, the family will be left to face the struggle by themselves. Your participation can make a difference.

Phakalane Expo
 
·        Date: 14th November 2009
·         Time: 10.00 a.m- 6.00 p.m
·         Venue: Phakalane Golf Estate ( Driving Range)
 
Target Audience: -        Phakalane residents
Exhibitors: -                  Phakalane based businesses and service providers.
Set- up: -                      Huge Marquee + Gazebo stalls
                                    (Food stalls and kids fun stall)
Music, Entertainment and giveaways.
 
The suburb of Phakalane has a population of over 10,000 residents and we felt it necessary to put together an expo to celebrate the growth of this suburb.
Phakalane is a business destination, represented by all major industries that range from manufacturing, food, auto, entertainment, leisure, banking, education, restaurants, housing, private cemeteries but to name a few.
The purpose of this expo would be to show case the different products and services that are available within Phakalane and will offer an opportunity for networking, branding and purchasing with the various products and services. This will also give companies a chance to promote their Christmas specials. It is amazing the realization that Phakalane is an almost self sufficient suburb that can survive independently. With more developments proposed e.g. hospital, game sanctuary and a cinema one may never have to leave the suburb unless it is absolutely necessary.
Residents as well will be exposed to a wide range of exciting special offers, prize giveaways and Christmas savings.
The event will take the form of a family fun day making it accessible to the whole family.  There will be jumping castles, face painting and water slides. New residents visiting the golf estate can go for a guided golf cart tour of the chalets and golf house. The venue will be complete with food stalls and entertainment.
 
To find out more about the event please contact the people below.
