"DILO MAKWATI"

CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

 

Our volunteer program is named “Dilo Makwati.” This is short for the Setswana Proverb “dilo makwati di kwatabolotswa mo go ba bangwe” meaning “brilliant ideas and learning is generated from interactions with other people." This proverb contains a principal concept incorporated within the culture at Love Botswana: investing AND embracing the best of what we have to offer one another. 

In Africa as a whole, and Botswana specifically, the culture supports a belief in life-long learning through the promotion and sharing of work and experiences within the context of this two-way exchange.  Our volunteer programs reflect this belief through the provision of interactive opportunities at the local, national and international level for individuals, families, groups and organizations.
