Our mission – What We Do and Why

In our mission to address the prevailing crisis, we focus on academic excellence, particularly in English, Mathematics, and Reading. However, we believe in nurturing the “Whole Child” by offering additional programs such as Music, Computer Skills Training, and comprehensive Life Skills courses. By equipping our young learners with a solid academic foundation and essential life skills, we empower them to overcome the obstacles of their impoverished community. Through our comprehensive program, the 120 students enrolled in MYO benefit from approximately 500 additional hours of tuition. We firmly believe in equal access to education, and our services are provided free of charge to scholars, with mandatory attendance. We foster discipline in the classroom while encouraging our learners to develop leadership skills alongside academic excellence. Additionally, we organize two field trips per year, allowing our students to explore the wonders and lessons of Namibia beyond the confines of their community.

By striking this balance between academic education, leadership development, and citizenship, we strive to shape resilient individuals who will positively impact not only their own lives but also the future well-being of Namibia.

Location – Where We Are Situated

Mondesa, a struggling township community, serves as the home for approximately 25,000 people, the majority of whom live in poverty. Adjacent to Mondesa is the Democratic Resettlement Community (DRC), where new residents to the township first settle. The DRC is characterized by makeshift wooden and cardboard shacks, lacking basic amenities such as electricity and running water. The population in this impoverished area is rapidly growing, with over 20,000 people residing there.

By strategically positioning ourselves within Mondesa and the surrounding communities, we aim to directly address the educational needs of underprivileged students and contribute to the upliftment and progress of the township and its residents.
