The Stephen Lewis Foundation partners with three Community Based Organizations in Botswana; one of them is BORNUS ......
BORNUS is a group of retired nurses and concerned citizens in Tlokweng village, about 8 km from the capital city of Gaborone, Botswana. It was set up in 1999, and was officially registered in 2003 as an NGO.
The Society runs a day care center, provides counseling and support to patients with HIV/AIDS, cancer, diabetes, and stroke, and helps provide academic support to at-risk youth. Their work is invaluable to the city of Gaborone.
News from the STRIDE
Well as the second week of our Virtual Walk draws to a close, let’s hope that we have seen the last of the snow; bulbs and blossoms will be the order of the day.
Our total kilometers for our short week 1 were 868.36. Well done, walkers, swimmers, cyclers and skiers. Leaving from Gaborone, Botswana we will travel on to Windhoek, Namibia and on to Cape Town, South Africa.
Why We Are Walking
Reminder to send your week 2 kilometer totals to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you to all the ‘steppers’, donors and pledgers.
Together we will make a difference.
