Black African Poets Organisation Partnership

The Black African Poets Organisation (BAPO) is a non-profit aiming to nurture and develop poetry and poets across Botswana. BAPO achieves by organising local poetry nights and festivals to enhance artistic exposure and promote professional development opportunities for local poets. BTC Foundation signed a partnership to sponsor BAPO’s initiatives during the period under review.

The Inaugural BTC Foundation Poetry Festival was held in September 2019; a lively event that celebrated local talent and showcased the rhythm and flair of the spoken word. The BTC Foundation Deputy Chairperson and BTC Managing Director were in attendance. They took great pleasure awarding the winning artist with a contract for the recording, marketing, and distribution of a poetry album.
