Africa-Press – Botswana. Gaborone Central Lions Club and the Lions Club of Molepolole in collaboration with Maunatlala Junior Secondary School and the community on Saturday held a sponsored walk themed: Transforming Communities by Cultivating Mindset Change.

The funds raised will go towards the maintenance work of the school and help with the provision of resources for the boarding school students. Gaborone Central Lions Club, and Lions Club Molepolole donated books, toiletry and oranges.

The sponsored walk raised P20 000 whilst Maunatala businessman Mr Eric Molokwane donated P10 000 to the school.

Lerala-Maunatlala Member of Parliament Mr Setlhabelo Modukanele applauded Lions clubs for seeing it fit to organise the sponsored walk event.

He said the funds may not be enough to cover all the expenses but would go a long way in ensuring that there was a starting point.

He said this would help the school to ensure that learners received the best care they could possibly be given for continuity in education.

Mr Modukanele also the Assistant Minister of Local Government and Rural Development said each step taken continued to bring the school closer to the goal of creating positive change, adding that every donation, no matter how small made a difference.

“Together we have the power to transform lives and build a future for those in need”, he said.

He said all had a role to play in circulating the donation sheets and noted that the support of those who contributed was invaluable and would leave a lasting impact on the lives of many.

Mr Modukanele said he was personally touched by the impact of Lions Club International movement that aimed to ‘TO SERVE’ communities and help address challenges that people encounter, be it health problem, taking care of the environment and issues to disaster management.

“I understand the importance of community support and solidarity”, he said. Maunatlala junior school head Mr Kebame Montwedi said the sponsored walk funds would cover maintenance work in the school.

He said some of their needs include classroom space, tables, chairs and a photocopying machine.

Lions Club International district governor elect Ms Crunch Kenosi said the purpose of the foundation was to support humanitarian efforts of Lions clubs around the globe.
