NAMPOWER has continued to invest in education as part of uplifting those in remote areas of Namibia.
Head of the NamPower Foundation, Lucia Hiveluah, stated that, to-date, the foundation has invested a total of N$43 million through its four focus areas of education, community development, health, and social welfare capacity and job creation.
Hiveluah made the remarks during the completion of the school building which was constructed for Onakashimba Kindergarten at Onyome Village in the Oshikoto Region.
Hiveluah pointed out that the kindergarten was constructed at a cost of N$91 197.
“NamPower has committed to assist five Kindergartens each year and the Oshikoto Region has become the beneficiary this year,” she said, adding that NamPower saw the value of investing in education.
Hiveluah narrated that education is a shared responsibility and requires all stakeholders to play their parts.
The headman of Onyome village, Tobias Mbidhi, applauded NamPower for noticing and recognising that education is the key.
“We are deep in the rural area and most attention is given to Urban areas again times, leaving us in remote areas forgotten, but NamPower saw the value of investing in children in rural areas,” he said.
