Hands of Hope
These programmes are the means by which Love Botswana extends the love of Christ in evangelism, helps, encouragement, giving and mercy. The programmes also provide platforms for its congregation as well as local and international volunteers and supporters to participate in the provision of this love and service. At the same time, the ministries are practical and life giving. As such they support government initiatives by filling in the gap where government needs civil society support.
After School Care is provided for children who come from families where there are addictions; these children are picked up at the end of the school day Mondays to Thursdays and brought to The Life Centre where they are fed, played with, and offered tutoring with their school work to help their grades improve; Play Therapy is also conducted for children 6 – 11 years old. Through After School Care, children are equipped with important life skills that build resilience in them, positively influence their decision-making, and assuage their chances of being trapped in a (potential) cycle of addiction that tends to exist in family settings.
All programmes focus on leadership development, discipleship and character building teaching and training, talent discovery and enhancement, and life skills development that supports HIV prevention and care.See More

The project seeks to promote a unified community that raises children together. Community volunteers who are passionate about children, their rights and responsibilities, and wellbeing, largely facilitate the project. Support Groups, Parenting Skills Trainings, Children’s Act Trainings, casework, and referrals are activities carried out through BBM. Since BBM’s inception in 2013, close to 500 cases have been received, and over half of them have been resolved, i.e. solved and closed, or referred.
