Community Service

Giving back to the community remains at the heart of the Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs. Since 2009, the Ministry has identified a community in which it has contributed positively towards a practice that has been turned into a monthly one since 2011.

The Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs believes in sustainable contribution which will not just benefit individuals but the larger community as well.

The village of Diphuduhudu in the Letlhakeng area was one of the first big projects that the Ministry got involved in, where the connection with the village started off with a donation of school unifomrs for some of the primary school pupils there. A relationship with both ceommunity and its leadership was then forged. 

In 2010, a group of young people from Diphuduhudu were identified and enrolled at the Construction Industry Trust Fund (CITF) in Gaborone to learn various trades in the construction industry. Since then, three of the Diphuduhudu youth have graduated and are now employable.

Mokhomma House

A New Home For the Bizo Family

Hundreds of hours of voluntary work! That, combined with skills from the Ministry's technical departments, being the Construction Industry Trust Fund (CITF) and the Madirelo training and Testing Centre (MTTC) was what it took to raise from the ground, a three roomed house and a toilet for the Bizo family.

Accompanied by a lot of passion and sheer determination, the Ministry of Labour and Home Affairs, raised around P60 000.00 to build a house for the family of twenty one (21) in the village of Mokhomma, which is located about 30 km outside the mining town of Jwaneng.
