Majoka Foundation initiatives are in line with the country’s broader vision of achieving inclusive sustainable development that upholds the dignity of all, Assistant Minister for Presidential Affairs and Public Administration, Mr Dikgang Makgalemela has said.

Mr Makgalemela said the foundation objectives, which included building an old age home at Serowe, educating the underprivileged children and giving them the required educational support and assisting orphans were commendable and resonate with government initiatives towards bringing dignity to all Batswana.

Speaking during the foundation launch at Serowe on  June 20, Mr Makgalemela stated that the founder, Kashmiri Lal well known as ‘Majoka’ who transitioned from an earlier profession as teacher to become a community builder, has keen interest in helping the community.

He said the founder has contributed to various schools under his flagship ‘Majoka hardware’ most improved student programme’ since 2011. The assistant minister said it was the same compassion that had driven him towards the plight of the elderly in Serowe through the donation of food parcels and now, the envisaged home for the elderly.

Mr Makgalemela said SOS Children’s Village in Serowe bears further testimony “to his almost evangelic crusade” of assisting the less fortunate. “In the establishment of the foundation, it is evident that Majoka aims to extend its activities on a larger scale and thus the need for more community involvement,” Mr Makgalemela declared.

For his part, the Assistant Minister of Education and Skills Development, Mr Moiseraela Goya thanked the Lal family for the initiative.

Mr Goya also hailed the organisers of the event especially that they considered that the event should be held at Lady Khama Memorial hall, the hall built by Lady Ruth Khama who was also passionate in helping the less privileged. He added that Majoka Foundation was on the footprints of Lady Khama as they put the lives of people on the fore front. 

Meanwhile, the Foundation founder said the idea started as he was assisting one old man with items ranging from food rations to clothes in Serowe. In an interview, Mr Lal (the founder), a formers Design and Technology teacher, elaborated that there was a need to build an old age home, and the intention was to have built it three years ago.
