21 April 2023
SAFOD in collaboration with Loughborough University in the UK, implemented a 5 month pilot project (December 2022 to April 2023) in Botswana, Kgatleng District. Through this project a center for culture, heritage, innovation and enterprise (C-CHIE) was built at Kgatleng Disabled Persons Association (KDPA). The centre will be used as a training facility for skills sharing seminars and workshop for production of arts and crafts artefacts.
The handing over ceremony brought together government stakeholders, community leaders, civil society organizations, organizations of persons, persons with disabilities,media and the general public.
The C-CHIE will be a cornerstone of more innovative initiatives to come, with the belief that the project can be scaled up and rolled out to other countries.
