Ancient Memories: Twyfelfontein and Petrified Forest
Discover petrified trees and the process which changed them, then explore early stone age art.
Namibia is a stunning country with a rich cultural heritage, dramatic scenery and vibrant communities. This project will bring you into a community and provide fantastic opportunities for cultural exchanges.
Whilst nearly 90% of the population is literate due to free compulsory education, funding for the school development is extremely limited. Many classrooms consist of a simple room with a blackboard painted on to crumbling plaster. People in the community want to develop these facilities, but lack the funding.
Creating a positive and engaging school environment will help to unlock the imagination and learning potential of school pupils. Your group will work with the community to enhance school facilities and provide inspiration for future generations. Project tasks can include reimagining classroom areas to repair damaged walls and floors and provide inspirational educational displays. Your group may also be involved in helping to develop outdoor recreational facilities to inspire play based learning.
