Mascom Staff donate P 20 000 to children with Down Syndrome


Donations in Gaborone:

Mascom staff across Botswana engaged in a cause to impact lives of children living with down syndrome when they wore jeans on Friday 31st October, 2014 in recognition of the Jeans 4 Genes day, an initiative by the Down Syndrome Association of Botswana. The goal of this initiative is to raise awareness for children with down syndrome living in Botswana.

Staff members contributed P5.00 or more towards this cause. With help from Management staff members managed to raise P20 000.00 that Mascom Wireless will officially hand at a breakfast organised by the Down Syndrome Association this Saturday 8th November, 2014 at the “I’m Special” School in Tlokweng – Gaborone.
    
This donation will help to drive key messages to Batswana about down syndrome: quality educational programs, a stimulating home environment, good health care, and positive support from family, friends and the community as these enable people with Down syndrome to develop their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.

Mascom Wireless believes that such endeavours would assist the community to understand that people with Down syndrome do attend school, work and contribute to society in many delightful ways. The association was founded by parents of children with down syndrome in 1999.
