Help to equip a village school

Why we need your help

Onguta School  

The community, pupils, and teachers are very grateful to the generosity of AfriCat UK Supporters who have raised over $1 million Namibia dollars for the new Onguta Community Primary School in the Ehirovipuka Conservancy. The school is now operational much to everyone’s delight however further funds are needed to pay for it all!  Can you help?  

The Community Headman Fanuel Ndjiwa, is a conservationist and well respected. He is committed to supporting the local lion population and works with the Namibian Lion Trust (formally AfriCat North) to encourage members of his community through the Lion Guards to use the livestock management practices which help to reduce human-wildlife conflict situations. The Community requested AfriCat North’s (now the Namibian Lion Trust) support with development of the school as an improved learning environment for the children and adults could help the community to grow and prosper. The classrooms were very tatty old army tents. The community have been actively involved, choosing a site, helping to establish the requirements, preparing the ground and helping with the development and construction. Given the logistics of the site the builders thought it better to complete all the elements in one go rather than the phased developed planned. They agreed to wait for some of their payment while funds could be raise. This is were your help is needed!

The new school is built from reconditioned old shipping containers under a large shady roof! It now consists of classrooms, a storeroom, library/computer room, showers and toilets, a kitchen with dining area which doubles up as a communal gathering place. In addition, water and electricity are in place.

However, funds are still needed to help pay for cost of establishing the water supply, putting in solar panels for the electricity and the building the kitchen.  Your help will be much appreciated.  

AfriCat UK is working in partnership with the Namibian Lion Trust see www.africat.co.uk and www.namibianliontrust.org
