Girls for Girls Botswana (G4G Botswana) was established in October 2020 and was followed by a country roll out in 2021. Girls for Girls Botswana runs both in-person and online mentorship cohort sessions in villages and cities such as Mathangwane, Gaborone, Mmopane, Khakhea Village, Mochudi, Dukwi, Lobatse, Gabane, Ramotswa, Jwaneng and Francistown. In 2020/2021, Girls for Girls Botswana was sponsored by Stanbic Bank Botswana and Botho University as venue partners. In 2021 and 2022, The United States Embassy partnered with us to scale our work across Botswana.
In 2023, we aim to reach 500 mentees. Our vision is to see more women representation in the 2024 and 2029 Botswana national elections. Beyond that, we hope to see a significant amount of women take up leadership positions in all spheres of society. This will lead to the overall transformation of the country with more empowered and confident women and girls contributing meaningfully.
