On the 25th March 2018, Bomaid as sponsor, joined marathon enthusiasts and advocates in the 4th Annual Gaborone Half Marathon at the Airport Junction in Gaborone.
The sponsorship offered Bomaid members and its staff an opportunity to participate in an event that improves their physical and social lives. The proceeds from the Gabs Half Marathon are given back to the community either by charitably giving of funds or raising awareness on the ills affecting the society.
For this year, the marathon’s mandate was:
• To raise awareness on the importance of sports at an early age
• To purchase sports training equipment for the Naledi Education Centre and to assist with food rations for the children they have engaged.
Naledi Education Centre is an NGO based in Gaborone at Naledi. The centre offers the children in the area a hot meal every day, monthly hygiene hampers as well as a place of recreation. They also assist them with their school work.
Bomaid is always pleased to partner with entities that make positive impact on the lives of the people and the communities they reside in.
