The Botswana Union Conference Children’s Ministries Department, under the leadership of Sonita Seligmann, recently launched the One Child, One Bible Project. This project aims to ensure that at least one Bible is placed in the hands of children who are considered less fortunate or from non Seventh-day Adventist homes. By partnering with organizations, churches, and parents, the department hopes that through this project, children will be encouraged to reach up to God for nurturing purposes as they read the Bible.
In support of the One Bible, One Child project, Adventist Mission donated Bibles worth $15,000. This was further complemented by 1 650 Bibles that were purchased from the Botswana Bible Society. The Botswana Union President Dr. Kenaope Kenaope and his team dedicated the Bibles in preparation for distribution to vulnerable children whose parents may not be in a position to buy one for them.
