New classrooms in Namibia
The Kid-Care College in Katutura offers new educational spaces for children from the poorest backgrounds in Windhoek, Namibia.
The Namibian capital Windhoek in the Goreangab district, also located in Katutura, we have been supporting the Kid-Care colleague das John Mateus founded in 2019. He has managed to get many children off the unsafe streets of the very poor neighborhood and offers them the greatest possible development and educational opportunities with a team of eight educators and teachers.
The Katutura district, which translates as “place where we don't want to live,” is one of the poorest in Namibia and also in Windhoek. Here we create a protected space for children to give them future prospects, but also to provide acute help through care and nutrition.
While 2019 children attended the social facility in 68, today there are already 155 who are supported and provided with meals in crèches, kindergartens, preschools and in a first class. The founder is a teacher himself and has invested his savings in the facility. We would like to support his commitment and thus the education of the children in his facility by building two much-needed classrooms. In this way we enable the 1st class of the previous year now as 2nd class can continue to be cared for in this facility.
The building for the new classrooms is almost finished. We still need 900 € to finance the project completely - now we can help with a proportionate donation for the new classrooms of the Kid-Care colleague in Katutura.
