Pupkewitz Motors, in partnership with Schoemans Office Systems, on Wednesday, donated 28 printers to schools in ten geographical regions across Namibia.

At a donation event held in Oshakati in the Oshana Region, Anton Westraadt, Managing Director of the Pupkewitz Motor Division, stated that corporate Namibia and the private sector have a responsibility to actively participate in the upliftment of communities for a better tomorrow, ensuring that each individual is a responsible Namibian citizen, who can contribute positively to Namibia’s economic well-being.

“When schools received printers, the proverb ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ came to mind. If we want our children to realise their potential and make an impact, we cannot delegate their upbringing and education to schools or the government,” he said.

According to him, Pupkewitz Motors considers it a primary obligation and responsibility to invest in the areas in which they operate.

These are the individuals for whom they supply inexpensive mobility options and who support their enterprises.

Johan Engelbrecht, the Chief Operating Officer of Schoemans, stated that the company has been at the forefront of innovation and technological adoption in Namibia for the past six decades, during which they also managed to help and support communities and schools.

“This donation and support, along with the Pupkewitz Motors Group, is a continuance of our assistance to the Namibian student, particularly in rural areas, to gain access to the necessary school supplies. We are happy of our relationship with the Pupkewitz Group, and we will seek out chances to expand this initiative’s beneficial impact through other channels,” he said.

Khomas, Omaheke, Otjizondjupa, Hardap, Erongo, Oshikoto, Omusati, Ohangwena, Kavango East and Oshana are the regions from which the beneficiary schools will be chosen.
