WINDHEOK Charity, a formalized Non-Governmental Organisation that holds annual fundraising activities for many vulnerable children in Windhoek, has grown into numbers with this years’ event expecting more than 4000 attendees to come as the event is set to take place this weekend at the UNAM stadium.
Windhoek Charity is now in its third year and is seeking sponsors, donations and corporate teams to enter the annual Windhoek Charity Fundraiser sports event.
The first ever Windhoek Charity event was held in 2017 at the UNAM Stadium and was attended by well over 1200 attendees. The event raised well over N$200 000.00 worth of sponsorships and donations. With the help of companies like Omualu Fishing, NDTC, Coca Cola, Pupkewitz Megabuild and Ready Bites the children from four children’s homes located in the poorest areas of Katutura benefited from the initiative.
The Event raised over N$400 000 and receiving over 3 800 attendees in the last two annual events and is now looking to attract more people in an effort of raising more funds for the chosen children’s homes which have been supported.
The 2019 Windhoek Charity event aims to make a more sustainable impression in the lives of these children with changes which will continue to benefit the homes long after the event is done.
This year the tournament will once again include a combination of social and corporate 7-A-Side soccer, netball and volleyball teams competing for first place in a fun filled family oriented environment.
All proceeds from the 2019 event will once again assist children from the same 3 children’s homes we have been working with for the past two years. In addition to the food, clothes, appliances, furniture the aim is to build small libraries at these homes and fund tutors to be able to help kids in the children’s homes with their tests and homework. This is driven by a need to be more sustainable instead of just being someone who drops by once a year.
