The Minister of Foreign Affairs Pelonomi Venson-Moitoi hailed the association as a big step towards restoring the dignity of marriage in the country on the face of growing divorce statistics. This is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) made up of people who are committed to building marriages in the country and making them last. One of the founders of the organisation Kgalalelo Lesetedi said their mandate is to help the marriage officers with core marital counseling for those who are intending to marry and those who are married. “This will all be done four free because we want to see change in marriages in this country which are not something to boast about,” she said. She emphasized that they are available to locals whenever they need them because the organisation is made up of people who are thirsty for happily ever after marriages and great families of Botswana. She said the launch of the organisation is a huge milestone that will allow them to help build many marriages which are on the verge of failing while they can be fixed. “We are not for any religion and we have different professions amongst us to cater for all family needs and advices. We have both the young and the old and we make sure that we find people that can speak any language that those seeking help will be comfortable in and those with wisdom on the issues that they will be facing,” she said. She said happy families makes happy homes, and without them that leaves negative impact on the society and eventually impacting the whole nation. She said it is important for those who are married to make sure that they honour their vows and stay committed to their spouses. She encouraged everyone to make sure that they talk to their neighbours, friends, families and fellow citizens to respect their marriage. “The divorces cases we are experiencing are just telling us that as Batswana we forget our vows and we forget to invite God in all that we do in our marriages,” she said.
