Camphill Community Trust BotswanaCamphill Community Trust Botswana was formed in 1974 with the opening of a residential school for physically and mentally disabled children in the village of Otse.
In order to overcome the problem of funding for the school, the Trust started some production workshops employing people from the local village. The profits from these production workshops went to help run the school.
The school and the production workshops have grown side by side. There is now a shop in the capital city of Gaborone which was built specifically to sell Camphill's products. The production workshops and shop have made a substantial contribution to the running costs of the school.
