ONAUSHE: The Action Based Organisation on Tuesday handed over school uniforms worth over N.dollars 10 000 to learners of Onaushe Combined School in the Oshana Region.
The school is located about 70 kilometres west of Oshakati and has a learner population of over 300, with 40 per cent of the learners being from marginalised communities.
According to Zackary Itodo, the organisation’s initiator, the Agra Staff Initiative Fund (ASIF) availed school uniforms and shoes upon his request for assistance towards the school.
‘The donation comes in the form of assisting learners who are in need of school uniforms but due to financial constraints, their parents are unable to afford a proper uniforms,’ he stated.
He added that the mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of background, can have proper uniforms and feel a sense of belonging within their schools.
Itodo further indicated that their goal is to reach more learners as a uniform represents a school’s identity, tradition and values.
The school’s pr
incipal, Gabhard Amunyela, stated that the donation will make a difference in the lives of their learners and hopefully boost their morale in school.
‘Many of the parents are struggling to buy proper school uniforms,’ he said, thanking the organisation for the donation as such initiatives go a long way to empowering the Namibian child.
