People of Progress: Namibian Community Development

A fully immersive experience in Namibia providing the opportunity to develop facilities within a community whilst engaging in cultural exchange.

  • Work with the local community to redevelop poorly maintained facilities to enhance education and recreation.
  • Research opportunities with the local community to develop lasting and beneficial school and recreational facilities.
  • Develop imaginative project ideas to enrich the learning environment for children in the local school.
  • Explore the options for cultural exchanges and lifestyle insights between your group and the community.

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.
