- Business magnate, Seabelo takes F/town School For The Deaf children out for lunch
Transport Business mogul, Kenneth Seabelo Tlhaselo kick-started the festive season by treating Francistown School For The Deaf children to a sumptuous Christmas lunch last weekend.
75 ecstatic children and 10 staff members from the Francistown School For The Deaf could not hide their excitement as they were chauffeured in a Seabelo luxury coach to a mouthwatering luncheon at the Marang hotel last Saturday.
The occasion was nothing short of what every child would dream of, with plenty of food, drinks and a neat and inviting play ground.
Music was part of the celebrations and despite the children’s hearing inability, some of the young guests, showed off their dancing skills by moving to the beat.
The Francistown School For The Deaf lunch was the first of Seabelo’s planned Christmas bashes around the country for the hearing impaired children.
“I have been throwing Christmas parties for these institutions for the past four years now. I want the children to feel appreciated and loved by their society despite their disability. Furthermore I
want to challenge other business people in the transport sector to support the less privileged members of our society. I chose to support the deaf because from my own observation, I believe we have more hearing impaired people in the country than people with any other disability,” said the owner of Seabelo Express and Carriers.
Besides the Christmas parties,deaf children from various schools board Seabelo’s buses free of charge provided they show proof of registration.
“In the future funds permitting I intend to do more for the schools in terms of getting them learning resources”, said the philanthropist, whose fleet of 40 buses crisscross all major routes around the country every day.
