At present, migration occurs almost only within the national borders.
About one third of the interviewed families have reported receiving
regular remittances. Remittances went mainly to resource-poor
households, and do represent an important component of the incomes of
the households in the bottom income group. They are found to have an
equalising effect on rural income distribution. Therefore, education, as a
means of attaining a job and income, remains a key livelihood strategy in
rural Botswana. According to the results of the empirical model, the
motivation to remit is induced and tempered altruism.
