National Principles

National Principles

Vision 2036 is anchored on our five national principles of democracy, development, self-reliance, unity and botho that have characterised post-independence Botswana.

  • Democracy in our context means that we will all contribute to our own individual, as well as our country’s wellbeing and development.
  • Development means that ours will be a country free of extreme poverty and inequality. It means both economic and social development.
  • Self-reliance means dependence on our own efforts and exerting them in building Botswana the way we wish it to develop.
  • Unity represents our recognition that we are a nation made up of different ethnicities and races, standing on the belief of diverse political views and religious affiliations that make up the fabric that supports our national principles.
  • Botho describes a well-rounded character, well-mannered, courteous and disciplined, who realises his or her full potential both as an individual and as a part of the community to which he or she belongs.
