Public Affairs Section Accepting Proposals For The My Botswana Storytelling Grant.

This month Botswana is celebrating 50 years of independence and a 50-year bilateral relationship with the United States. The My Botswana storytelling grant will celebrate the momentous occasion of Botswana’s 50th anniversary year by providing youth with tools to think critically and to express their ideas about the opportunities and challenges that shape their present.


The objective of the My Botswana grant is to re-introduce the art of storytelling (written and spoken word/music) to school-aged children 10-18 years old with the goal of exploring the rich heritage of storytelling in Botswana, empowering youth to tell the story of current-day Botswana from their perspective, and encouraging civic engagement.

This call will close on Friday September 23, 2016 at 13:00. Proposals should be submitted to [email protected]. Proposals received after the deadline will not be considered. Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted and winners will be notified via e-mail on September 21, 2016.

All questions and inqueries should be addressed to [email protected] .
