Botswana: Digital Schools for 2,000 children

In Botswana, five schools were fitted out with our digital kit in 2018, as part of our Digital Schools programme. After the programme’s official launch in Sedibe, Moshopha, Mmanoko, Dikgonnye and Ntlhantlhe, we plan to pursue our efforts to provide the most deprived schools with the benefits of the educational content available in our digital kit.



A heightened presence in schools: A further 1,500 tablets

As part of Orange Botswana’s 20th anniversary celebrations, we have pledged to double the number of tablets in the existing digital schools from 50 to 100 tablets per school. Several classes use the digital kit every week, the aim of this initiative is to meet the schools’ needs with additional tablets.

There are 330 pupils in Sedibe (Central District), 387 in Moshopha (Central District), 340 schoolchildren in Mmanoko (Kweneng District, 215 in dikgonnye (Kweneng District) and 500 in Ntlhantlhe (South District). These new tablets are needed to facilitate access to all the digital kit’s educational content.

Deploying the programme in the coming years

5 more digital schools will be deployed in 2019 in Botswana’s North East District, North West District and Boteti District.
We hope to continue deploying digital schools in Botswana, equipping 5 more schools every year between 2018 and 2022.
