Ministry pauses applications for women programme

The Ministry of Nationality, Immigration and Gender Affairs will no longer receive new applications for the women economic empowerment programme effective February 1.

A press release from the ministry states that the ministry has experienced high intake of the programme which resulted in a backlog of applications following revision of the women’s economic empowerment programme in November 2015 and June 2016.

The release says applications for funding through women economic empowerment programme have therefore been temporarily suspended to address the current backlog as well as enable timely processing of existing backlog of applications.

Nonetheless, the release states that the ministry continues to monitor the situation of women in Botswana particularly their socio-economic status. BOPA
