Community Project in Namibia

A project located one hour away from Windhoek, the capital, aims to support children facing educational barriers or in disadvantaged situations. This initiative involves aiding teachers and professionals in their daily responsibilities, with the goal of ensuring access to education for all.

You can choose between 2 different programs:
