What We Do and Why

MYO endeavors to overcome the failings of the Namibian public education system by providing education subsidy to select Grade 4-8 students who show promise. The 120 students who attend MYO receive approximately 500 hours of extra training in Math, Reading, English, Life Skills, Computer Science and Music. There is no charge to the family for our services, but attendance is mandatory. We maintain discipline in the classroom and encourage our learners to develop leadership skills in addition to academic excellence. Each class is given two field trips per year, so that the joys and lessons of wider Namibia are experienced.

Where We Are Situated

Mondesa, a struggling township community is the home of approximately 25,000 people, the vast majority of whom live in poverty. A new township community, the DRC (Democratic Resettlement Community) has developed near the Mondesa township and this is where new residents to the township first settle. This area is characterized by wooden and cardboard shacks with no electricity or running water services.
