It is envisaged that the Lefoko Centre will be established in Maun. It is a missionary frontier, where the Catholic population is still very small (less than 0.1%). Maun is also a major, rapidly growing population centre (50.000 people), and it has central location in the North of Botswana.
It is very far, inconvenient and expensive for the Catholics of Maun and from the new Missions in Ghanzi and Gumare to attend meetings, workshops or training courses in other diocesan centres (Mahalapye, Francistown). Maun and other Northern Missions need urgent assistance in missionary and formation work locally.
In addition, it is envisaged that Maun will become an independent diocese in the future.
