Bana Ba Letsatsi:
As part of its' social responsibility programme Ker & Downey supports Bana Ba Letsatsi. Bana Ba Letsatsi (which means Children of the sun) is a charity that was established in 2004 with the mission of supporting vulnerable, orphaned and at risk children living in Maun. There are over 200 children on the register; these children are registered as they have either never been to school or dropped out, suffer sexual or physical abuse, are orphaned or lack parental care, beg, work under-age, abuse drugs. For more information please see their website www.banabaletsatsi.org
At Ker & Downey Botswana we are committed to supporting BBL and as such have launched a range of safaris, a percentage of which is donated directly to the charity.

Pack for a Purpose:
You can make a big impact on the lives of children here in Botswana – Ker & Downey Botswana are proud members of 'Pack for a Purpose', an initiative that uses available space in your luggage to provide essential supplies to the communities that you visit while on Safari. For 5 pounds (2.27 kilos) you could bring out 400 pencils, five deflated soccer balls with an inflation device, or a stethoscope, a blood pressure cuff and 500 band-aids.
