You are currently viewing Kiklo sponsors Botshabelo’s Connectivity

Botshabelo in Kyalami is passionate about transforming lives and adding value to our city. Every year, they reach over 2000 women and children through 3 different programs: a Babies Home for orphaned and abandoned babies, an UpliftED Teacher Training programme empowering women to teach preschool in impoverished communities, and Urban Kids EduCentres that provides quality preschool education to disadvantaged families.

There are many ways to help including sponsorships of school fees, Adopt-A-Cot, Teacher Training and monthly giving, or through donation drives and volunteering. Kiklo recognised the need for the home to have a stable internet connection as so much of what enables this organisation to flourish starts with their offices being connected and being connected well.

As with Botshabelo, Kiklo FTTx is committed to making a difference in the community and have gifted Botshabelo access to our fibre network with uncapped, unshaped and symmetrical line speed for their home. We are honoured to be in the position to assist them in making this difference to our future generations.

The home has many more needs and is in constant need of their community’s contributions. We can all make a difference, even if it is only a small one. Please have a look at their “Christmas Wishlist” below and contact the home directly to donate.
