    to Botswana–Sweden Friendship Association

    The Botswana-Sweden Friendship Association, commonly known as BOTSFA, was formed in 1984. The objective was and remains that of promoting an understanding and closer interaction between Swedes and Batswana, and enhance social and cultural exchanges.

    The Association was formed during a period when many Swedish experts worked in Botswana within the frame of Sweden´s development assistance to the country in the 70's and 80's. Today the assistance is chanelled through other organizations, e.g. the Swedish Trade Council and Forum Syd, which implement various projects in several areas requiring development assistance. Following the Swedish government's decision to close the Embassy in 2007, representation was replaced by "Sweden House", locatedin the former Swedish Ambassadors' residence on Presidents Drive in Gaborone.


    The Botswana-Sweden Friendship Association is, according to its Constitution, open to "any person living in Sweden regardless of citizenship, to Swedish citizens abroad, and to Botswana citizens, who support the objectives of the Association."
