11.3Labour, Culture and Social Services

11.3.1Sports and Recreation


Although the department of Sports and Recreation is not active in Kgatleng District, there are some village sports teams run by the communities. There is a need for the department to decentralise in order to be able to coordinate the district sports activities.


11.3.2Culture and Youth


The department has managed to establish a district youth extension office in Mochudi during NDP 8 with a view to enhance coordination of youth activities and provide financial assistance to the out of school youth groups to start small businesses. The office has not managed to adequately address the concerns of young people due to both manpower and financial constraints.
However, despite the limited funding for Out-of-School Youth Grant, 18 youth projects, which include phone shops, music clubs, Performing Arts Clubs, and small businesses, were funded between 2001 and 2002. The projects are operating quite well.

11.3.3Museum


The Phuthadikobo Museum in Mochudi helps to preserve the culture of Bakgatla community. It also generates and disseminates information to the community, as well as carrying out some research.

11.3.4National Library Services


The department, through the branch library in Mochudi, continues to provide information to the nation and promote its utilization for research, educational and recreational purposes.
Due to lack of implementation capacity, an extension to Mochudi Library was not implemented during NDP8.

11.3.5National and Civil Registration


The department is responsible for the registration of births, deaths and marriages as well as administration of the change of name act. It also registers all citizens aged 16 years and above and those who become citizens through naturalisation for purposes of issuing them with National Identity Cards.
Currently Omang office faces a challenge of making sure that applicants collect their cards and reduction of the processing time for omang because most of the activities are still centralised.

11.3.6Information and Broadcasting


The department continues to undertake the following: -

  • Interpretation of the policy and actions of government to the people by continuing service on information and public relations.

  • To encourage and assist the people of Botswana to take an increasing interest in and responsibility for the economic, cultural and political development of the country.

  • To advise government on public opinion and in the field of public relations in general terms.



11.3.7NGOs and CBOs


The Botswana National Youth Council managed to establish an office in Mochudi, which has the mandate to oversee the activities of the District Youth Council, in liaison with the Department of Culture and Youth.
