Who We Are
We Shape, We Build, We Conquer
Botswana is an African country which has had a significant growth and development since it attained its independence. However, although there are various initiatives by the government to combat issues to do with human rights, women empowerment as well as youth development a significant gap still exists that need attention.
The Botswana Poverty Assessment shows that there was a decline in poverty but not very helpful when it came to the youth as well as the marginalised women. It is then SOSCI’s vision to join in the fight against women marginalisation and treatment as third class citizens and instil self love for themselves. In addition to that, it is again SOSCI’s vision to see that the youths achieve their dreams and the girl child empowered and given due recognition.
The Society of Sustainable Community Innovations, is committed to excellence in all aspects. We will maintain an organisation that recognised as one of the best non-profit organisations to work with in Botswana.
In addition to that, we are committed to the personal and development of the women and youth in the entire nation. We will develop a dedicated cadre of volunteers who support our vision, mission, and programs. Moreover, we will encourage diversity and provide an atmosphere that is safe, healthy, and conscious of community interests.
— Our Mission
To empower and give voice to the girl child and those socially shunned and uplift the youth to their potential status
— Our Vision
To eradicate all traces of women marginalization and youth poverty by the year 2030.
The Society was founded by the President, the volunteering members of the community and the leaders of the organisation of Society of Sustainable Community Innovations in 2021.
The President after engaging into different selfless initiatives to help those women and young girls in health related matters, as well as financial problems she saw it noble to carry on the good deed on a national scale. Thus having identified a few individuals who shared in the same vision was then Society of Sustainable Community Innovations (SOSCI) given birth too. The society rests its powers on the committee which consists of the President, Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary, Vice-Secretary, Treasurer and Additional Committee members. All these positions are contested every year except of that of the President. The society has its headquarters situated in Francistown.
We could not do the work we do without the generous and tireless support of volunteers. If you are interested in making an impact in the women and the youth of Botswana, this is the place to be.
We provide meaningful work for our volunteers that contribute directly to supporting our mission. We offer both long-term and short-term volunteer opportunities assisting our education, operations, development, communications and marketing teams.
The leadership team at SOSCI inspires enthusiasm in their teams and are energetic in motivating engagement with the society’s mission and vision.
