The donation aimed to helping to safeguard the longevity of the union. Together, the organisations have set out to ensure that the long-term security and wellbeing of Botswana’s public workforce. The institutions remain aligned in recognising that all should be included and benefit from Botswana’s development and socioeconomic growth.

We recognise that unions form the cornerstone of a working society and help set quality standards for our Nation’s workforce.”
