Social Performance Projects

DTC Botswana defines Social Performance as contribution in the form of money, employee time and other resources towards the improvement and development of the lives of the community and creating a legacy of sustainability.

To play an active and meaningful role in the lives of our communities, as a responsible and caring corporate citizen, we acknowledge the need to make an investment that will add some measure of value to the quality of life in Botswana.

Our Social Performance programme enables us to do just that. In making our contribution to community upliftment in Botswana, we do acknowledge that that there is still much more to be done but the challenges are surmountable.
