The |Kanigobes Fishing company on Friday donated equipment and materials valued at N.dollars 69 499.49 to the Kaitsi !Gubeb Combined School at Berseba in the ||Kharas Region.
The items donated to the school are among others a deep freezer, a microwave, mats for the junior primary phase, photocopy paper and a steam iron.
Speaking on behalf of |Kanigobes Fishing, Maria Kahuika said as part of company’s social corporate responsibility, it identified Kaitsi |Gubeb as its beneficiary as most parents and guardians of the learners at the school are pensioners and communal farmers who face socio-economic problems with little or no income to make a living.
“As we all know education is one of the costliest services for any government, currently the government is facing severe financial constraints, hence the school faces many challenges that hinders the smooth running, teaching and learning of the school,” said Kahuika.
She said education is central to the eradication of poverty as contained in the Harambe Prosperity Plan and also key to Vision 2030 that will ensure that the Namibian society will be made up of literate, skilled, articulate, innovative, informed and proactive people.
“We believe that education is one of the most powerful things in life, it allows us to find the meaning behind everything and helps to improve and better lives in a massive way. |Kanigobes Fishing Pty Ltd ought it necessary after becoming aware of their lack of teaching facilities to come to the aid of the school as it is in dire need of various teaching and learning resources,” she added.
||Kharas Director of Education, Arts and Culture, |Awebahe ||Hoeseb extended a word of gratitude towards the company for their gesture and pledged that the equipment will be used properly and optimally for the intended beneficiaries.
“Educators at this school, please make sure that the donated equipment are kept in a good shape and last longer through everyday preventive maintenance, emergency maintenance, corrective maintenance and minor repairs and continue to offer you as educators and your learners a pleasant and useful working environment,” he said.
