Namibia: Namdeb Splashes Out On Schools

Windhoek — Namdeb Foundation donated computers, photocopiers, printers, office and catering equipment to the value of N$137 000 to 11 rural schools.

The donation will enhance the learning environment of about 3 400 pupils at these schools.

In 2012, the Namdeb Foundation invested approximately N$75 million in social investment programmes, of which an estimated N$4 million went to the education sector.

"Namdeb supports the Ministry of Education's efforts aimed at improving the Namibian educational system on various fronts. Government needs the support of all sectors of the Namibian society, to make a meaningful impact on improving the quality of education in the country. The private sector, parents, communities and most definitely the learners themselves, must all play a role in this endeavour," said chairperson of the Namdeb Foundation Board, Daniel Kali.

The schools are the Bloukrans Primary School in Dordabis, Shikeva Combined School in Ohangwena, ELCRN Hostel in Grunau, Tsumkwe Primary School in Tsumkwe, Bukalo Primary School in Katima Mulilo, Eenkalashe Combined School at Onesi, AME Community Private Primary School at Kalkrand, Omatjete Primary School in Omaruru, Mariental Primary School at Mariental, Nailenge Primary School in Ohangwena and the Martin Luther High School in Omaruru.
