Botho University at Lady Khama Cup
The spirit of charity embodied by the late Lady Ruth Khama continues to live on through the Lady Khama Charitable Trust, which holds the annual Lady Khama Cup. Botho University joined His Excellency the President of Botswana Seretse Khama Ian Khama and the Board of Trustees of the Lady Khama Charitable Trust at the charitable golf day, held this year at the Gaborone Golf Club on Friday 20thOctober 2017. Local companies also attended, to support this annual event, at which funds raised go towards charities to help the disadvantaged.
The Lady Khama Charitable Trust was founded in 2002, in honour of Lady Ruth Khama, and with the aim of supporting charitable organisations that focus on helping the less fortunate and Botswana women and children. In establishing the Trust, her eldest son and current Patron of the Trust, His Excellency the President, sought to continue the community development work that Lady K spent so much of her time pursuing. The Trust’s focus on vulnerable women and children mirrors that of Lady K, highlighted by her involvement with the Botswana Red Cross, Botswana Council for Women and SOS Children’s Villages. Through its work, the Trust hopes to help everyone it assists to live in dignity.
