If most citizens can be given training and education opportunities by 2030, then the country will be in a good position: Martin Andjaba

If most citizens can be given training and education opportunities by 2030, then the country will be in a good position to advance the sustainability of its development, Acting Minister of Education, Arts and Culture, Martin Andjaba has said.

Andjaba made these remarks today during the graduation ceremony of Namibian College of open Learning (NAMCOL) in the capital.

He said the ministry aims to provide equal access to affordable vocational training and to eliminate gender and wealth disparities with the aim of achieving universal access to a quality high education and that NAMCOL has been doing that from the onset, which will help with the economic advancement and development of the country.

Many people would have otherwise not been able to successfully complete secondary education, with the aim of furthering education and subsequently complete or continue high education. In the house of Harambee, all Namibians should have an equal opportunity to prosper and NAMCOL has fully answered this call, said Andjaba.

He added that it will be good to see NAMCOL graduates making a difference in all sectors of development in the country, adding that the ministry has no doubt that the services it provides is indispensable in supporting the government to build the 'Namibian House'.
