Proceeds go to autism Botswana

This year’s YCare Trust Marokolwane Pre-walk in collaboration with The Voice Newspaper is back.

The 20 km annual walk held in memory of the the late founding Publisher of The Voice Newspaper,Beata Kasale-Kabango is scheduled for the 19th of February at Marokolwane Farms.

In an interview with The Voice the coordinator of YCare Charitable Trust, Sarona Moabi said Kasale-Kabango supported their trust for years so they found it fit to honour her legacy.

He said all proceeds from the walk go to the charity chosen by The Voice and this year Autism Botswana has been identified as the beneficiary.

“We have brought Autism Botswana on board. They are a non-governmental organisation, which we have always helped with funds. Due to Covid-19 outbreak, we were unable to fundraise hence failing to generate income to assist them. Proceeds from this year’s walk will be shared between Autism and The Voice. We encourage people to buy tickets and participate in large numbers because their efforts will make a positive impact on the lives of the less privileged,” said Moabi.

The pre-walk is a build up for their annual main event of YCare Makgadikgadi walk.
