Education and literacy are major issues in Bushmanland, Namibia. A young Namibian has at heart to create a youth education centre in this remote area. Children are faced with many issues and school drop-out is common. The aim of the centre is to equip the children with life skills and adequate levels of literacy so that they can remain in school and later integrate with the rest of the country’s economy.
We are currently working on the creation of a voluntary association and planning all details of the centre, making the dream a closer reality.
This project will have a positive impact on child development (including confidence, motivation, health, education), as well as long-term environmental conservation. It will also create a positive impact on the health and wealth of the community through job creation, entertainment activities, increased access to resources.
Come meet Marc, a young Namibien who want to help the children to grow with the bush.
