The U.S. Mission arranges a variety of U.S.-government sponsored exchange programs that link Batswana and Americans. These programs are intended to introduce participants to the United States and American people and culture, as well as provide them with a chance to exchange ideas with their American colleagues. Educational and cultural exchanges create human bonds and enduring relationships that build bridges of cooperation and understanding between peoples.
The Public Affairs Section promotes a better understanding of American life, institutions, economy, politics, and culture, by promoting American Studies abroad, facilitating study in the U.S., and promoting studies of American language and literature.
Educators whose subject matter touches on American Studies, whether they be university professors, primary or secondary school teachers, curriculum designers, textbook writers, etc., are encouraged to contact the Cultural Affairs Officer at Public Affairs section to discuss how we might help to enrich existing programs or develop new programs.
Students who plan to study in the United States should contact the Information Resource Center at the following number: (+267) 395 3982 ext 2428/2424.
