In the midst of promoting entrepreneurship and sustainable SMME development in Botswana, LEA also engages in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects with the intention of uplifting the livelihoods of the beneficiaries.  The adoption of Mpiti Primary School in Matobo village signifies the Authority’s determination to upholding the Vision 2016 Pillar of “An Educated and Informed Nation”, as well as the response to the Ministry of Basic Education “Adopt a School” initiative. The Authority has adopted the school for a period of three years, 2013-2015.

Since 2013, LEA has sponsored the school’s  prize giving ceremonies, to honour the Standard Seven pupils as well as award high performers across streams/standards. In addition, the school received the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) revision books, stationery and wall clocks for all classrooms in 2014. The awards are meant to motivate the rest of the students to study hard and look forward to recognition in future. In 2015, the Authority handed over desk buddies with solar lights to honor the achievements of the students who excelled in their academic work.
