The team arrived at Lesang Bana just before 11:00 and we were met by Sister Paulina . Sister Pauline advised that they did not have a safe place on the complex to store the food as they had experienced a lot of theft and so they wished to store the food at St Josephs on the other side of Gaborone.
Some of foodstuff was offloaded and presented to Sister Pauline who accepted it on behalf of Lesang Bana. Photographs were taken of the handover and then the foodstuff was loaded up again and Rotarians Roy and Alan took it to St. Josephs.

Before leaving Past President John gave Sister Pauline a tub of sweets that was left over from the Carols by Candlelight evening which Sister Pauline distributed to the children who were present.

On Sunday, 20 August 2017, the 4th addition of the Adventure Challenge was held at Mokolodi Nature Reserve. The event was organized by Time Projects in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Gaborone.
 
Rotarians assisted by a group of scouts manned the marshalling points out on the course. The course consisted of 4 routes being yellow, green, orange and pink. Yellow was a 10km run, green was a 15km cycle ride to the south of the reserve, orange was a 15km cycle ride to the north of the reserve and pink was a 5 km run. At the points where the routes met, the marshals were required to ensure that runners and cyclists  followed their relevant routes. In some instances routes merged with one another and stragglers from  one route mixed with the front runners of the next route. This required the marshals to be on the ball to ensure that they directed the participants in the right direction.
 
The Club’s share of the proceeds from the event will go towards obtaining wheelchairs for distribution to some of the physically challenged members of our communities.

The Rotary Club of Gaborone held its Golf Day on Sunday, 11 June. It was a Four Ball Alliance.
The tournament got underway with a shotgun start at 08:30. There was also a putting competition as well as a raffle.
The event was organized and run by Rotarian Roger Damp with help from many of his fellow Rotarians.
It appeared that most participants enjoyed the morning with a few exemptions. There were some incredible shots but others were a bit wayward as some of the golfers flirted with the bush and had their tee shots diverted by some of the trees.
We would like to thank all the golfers who took part, those who took part in the putting competition and everybody who purchased raffle tickets. All proceeds go to the Rotary Charity funds and early indications are that approximately P 30 000.00 was raised.

This is the 3rd year that we have provided food aid to this scheme in addition to blankets that we donated to them last year.
We were met by the new priest, Father Foster who arrived in Botswana in August last year. He was given a brief rundown on Rotary and what the Rotary Club of Gaborone was doing.
The food was then offloaded and handed over to Father Foster for use by the Church to feed the street children and to be distributed to the destitute families in the Church’s care.

On Thursday, 11 September 2014, President John Cunliffe and his wife Beverley visited Childline together with Rotarians Emily Ruhukwa and Graham Burt. The object was to donate some jerseys, mittens and beanies that had been sent out from the UK by the Rotary Clubs of Grimsby Havelok and Skegness when Past President Chris Suich and Rotarian Bob Suich visited the club last month.

We met with the Country Coordinator of Childline Botswana, Onkemetse Mbazo-Montsheki who gave us an overview of their operation and guided tour of their facility.

In addition to the 24 hour hotline, Childline provides counselling for children and parents and also provides a safe haven for abused and abandoned children. They have accommodation for about 20 children and are presently looking after 19.

We met a handful of boys who were under school going age, one toddler and three babies. The boys were overjoyed to see us and all wanted to be hugged and picked up. They were very excited with the items of apparel plus the biscuits and drinks that were also presented.

Because of the various reasons for these children being accommodated by Childline we were advised that we could not show their faces in any of the photographs and thus we had to come up with alternative poses. It was difficult to get all of the boys to cooperate at the same time and so I have blurred the offending face.

In the early part of the year the then President of the Rotary Club of Gaborone, Barry Evans, approached Time Projects to support Rotary by donating to the Mochudi Resource Centre for The Blind. Time Projects were wishing to re-establish the Adventure Challenge and saw this as a perfect opportunity and so the Rotary Time Adventure Challenge was born.

It was agreed that Time would sponsor and organize the event with support and assistance from The Rotary Club of Gaborone. The proceeds of the entrance fees would go to the Mochudi Resource Centre for the Blind building project.

The event took place at the Mokolodi Nature Reserve and consisted of a relay of two running legs and two mountain biking legs. There were teams from all sectors of the business community as well as social and family teams. There were even a few individuals who elected to complete all legs on their own. Teams consisted of young and old, male and female. It was all good fun and some of the contestants managed to take short cuts or get themselves lost.

Prizes were handed out to all the winners in the various categories but the overall winner was the Mochudi Resource Centre as in excess of P 82 000.00 was raised to go towards the building of a new and modern facility in Mochudi.

Thanks go to Time Projects and the contestants for making the event a success.

We started in Modipane, then went to Mokatse and finished off at Dikwididi. The villages of Modipane and Mokatse actually converge on each other and could easily be mistaken as being just one village. Dikwididi is accessed by traveling on a dirt road that runs close to the Botswana/South African border.

It has been a tradition of the club to hand out toys to  children in hospital on Christmas Day. This year we visited the children’s ward  of Princess Marina Hospital in Gaborone. There were only approximately 40 children  in the ward as the less serious cases had been allowed to go home for the  holiday period.

President William Lee and 11 other Rotarians met up at the  hospital at 10 am on Christmas morning. The toys were loaded on to a hospital  bed and were wheeled off to the ward. A present was then handed out to each of  the children in ward.

2010 saw a change in tradition whereby the Rotary Club of Gaborone handed out Christmas presents to orphans and vulnerable children in Molepolole who are supported by F.E.C.H. instead of visiting the cjhildren's wards on Christmas Day.

The reason for the change was caused by the fact that a number of other service clubs and charitable organizations have followed our lead and have started handing out presents on Christmas Day to the children in hospital. The number of children in the wards have dwindled over the years as hospitals try to send as many children as they can home for the Christmas period. As these children are now well catered for, we turned our attention elsewhere.

 The weekend of 26 -  28 November saw the holding of the Rotary Club of Gaborone's 7th "Donate a Can" project. This is a project that is held annually on the last weekend of November. The concept is simply that the Rotary Club of Gaborone ask the community to donate cans of food for distribution to orphans and disadvantaged children. This is done by Rotarians being stationed outside selected supermarkets and requesting the patrons entering the supermarket to consider purchasing a can for the children and then collecting the can on their way out.
