BIC takes its CSR role very seriously and we will continue to invest more into the country’s social development,” Claasen said.
Cheshire Foundation of Botswana is a charitable, non- governmental organisation that was established in 1988 to provide comprehensive rehabilitation services to the people of Botswana. The organisation runs a large diversity of programs which enables it to cover a wide range of disability related issues. This is inclusive of residential and daycare programmes for handicapped children aged between 5 and 15 years who receive Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, Special Education and Speech Language Therapy.
BIC said it strongly believes in the betterment of the society and we support projects that are looking into improving the lives of the less fortunate and the disabled. B IC appreciates and understands that development does not solely lie in the hands of government, but that it is also up to private sector players to contribute towards transforming, reconstructing and developing the nation.
