Actually this should LIVE from Namibia, but since November 26.11.2021th, XNUMX, Namibia has been a virus variant area just like the neighboring countries due to the new virus mutation and I have to leave earlier than planned.

Michael Hoppe

Impressive 4th graders

4th class
The 4th grades worked hard - in October they worked for steps for children for the second time and, with dedication and sporty power, earned a 4-digit amount.
With the amount, the fourth grade of the school at the garden city will take on guardian angel sponsorships and thus actively campaign for more educational opportunities and future prospects for children and young people in Namibia.

On behalf of all Guardian Angel children from Okakarara, we thank you very much for your commitment and admire your commitment.
