Bana Ba Metsi started in March, 16 th 2000 by a Peace Corp Volunteer veteran Steven G. Harpt. The school’s objective is to rehabilitate Botswana’s youth at risk, develop their skills, attitudes, and personal qualities.
The school caters for boys most of whom have been affected by problems which interfered with their primary level education such as HIV/AIDS, poverty, bullying and being orphaned. These boys receive practical/vocational skills development such as bricklaying, carpentry, mechanics, agriculture, music and information technology.
Bana Ba Metsi has shown great efficiency as the boys constantly engage in commercial activities that give them a sense of belonging. Mr Harpt has also had the honour to receive a presidential award towards contribution to the development of local education in 2010. Lady Khama Charitable Trust is honoured to be involved with Bana Ba Metsi.
