I am just 7 days from making my way to Gaborone, Botswana! This is a dream come true and the result of much faith and teamwork. I get to travel to a new place halfway across the world with my husband AND make a difference in the lives of many...what more can I ask for?
Here is what the itinerary looks like right now (my host is still adding more for greater impact!)
Appearance on Botswana TV to share about the work we will do in the community and promote the Happiness & Conversation event
Speak at Happiness & Conversation, a local empowerment event hosted by my dear sister and friend Lindiwe Keitz
Visit to the Kagisano Society Women's Shelter to speak, read from my book and donate hygiene/personal care items to the women residing there
Visit to the Gaborone International School where I will speak to the girls about "Living the N.O. F.E.A.R. Life and donate school supplies (My husband will conduct a basketball mini camp for their players and speak to them as well)
Visit a nearby impoverished neighborhood to donate feminine care supplies
Visit another school in a high-need area (exact location TBD)
When we catch our breath and slow down a bit: picnic at the local wildlife reserve, visit the Three Dikgosi Monument, National Museum, the Mall, etc
Stay tuned for video and photo updates as much as I can on this page and/or my Facebook page.
