The Christ the King Conference manages a SSVP Centre for orphans and isolated disadvantaged elderly people. The Centre provides housing for up to 10 infants and 2 adults. Although the centre is equiped with all the necessary household conveniences, the Centre does not have a study room or library where the kidscan go, outside school time, to carry out their homework, revise their lessons or simply read for their own personal enrichment.
The Society of Botswana has thus planned the construction of a building on the land of the Centre in order to install a library, a study room, and a computer room for the infants of the Centre, as well as being accessible to other school children in the neighbourhood. Ireland will also support the project by financing the furnishing and equipment.
