Debswana has for the first time this year sponsored the Sports Woman of the Year award at the Botswana National Sports Commission awards that took place yesterday (Saturday) to the tune of P40 000. Debswana has taken a deliberate decision to support women within and outside of the organisation in areas such as sports, entrepreneurship and academics. “This is part of our concerted drive to empower women, one of our focus areas in our corporate social investment space,” said Head of Corporate Affairs, Esther Kanaimba-Senai. She said it is for this reason that the company saw it fit to provide sponsorship for the Sports Woman of the Year award for the first time this year. Debswana will continue to sponsor the Sports Person of year award to the tune of P80 000 which it has been doing over the years.
