Project Overview

BOTSWANA SENIOR SOLUTIONS HOME AND expansion of the PENSION SCHEME

The least noticed of the destitute in Botswana are the elderly. Many elders in Botswana are trapped in misery combination of poor health and low income, despite of the free medication, food and their old age allowance provided by our government. Looking at the traditional support structure of the family, it is increasingly unable to cope with the problem where the family is breaking down and children are unable to take care of their parents, thereby many elderly end up facing destitution. The emerging demographic profile and socio economic scenario of the country indicates that matters will worsen dramatically years to come. Actually, one will get to wonder if we growing as a country, a culture or as human beings because the care fails even when we fully equipped with the needs. While there is a need to initiate poverty alleviation programs designed to support the elderly, now is the time to start. The steady elongation of life expectancy and low birth rates will take us towards an India where there will be such a large number of aged persons, that a poverty alleviation program which aims to pay even modest subsidy would require a staggering expenditure much beyond the capacity of government. In this situation, the government will realize that poverty alleviation programs directed at the aged alone cannot provide a complete solution to the problem. With such large numbers. It is an apparent frugality and self help, where people prepare for old age by savings accumulating through their decades in the labor force. The role that the government and private sectors can play in this enterprise is to create an infrastructure to enable and encourage each citizen to undertake this task and create a separate portfolio for medical expenses.
