He co-finances there FLY & HELP the construction of the new Peter Wackel school building with two classrooms for another 50 students from the Five Rand Settlement, one of the poorest areas in Namibia.

For usage The following educational measures are planned for the building:
morning: Lessons for preschool children from the ILENI TULIKWAFENI Community Center
