Onguta School Update

Thanks to the generosity of AfriCat Supporters over $1 million Namibia dollars has been raised to build the classrooms of the new Onguta Village Primary School Ehirovipuka Conservancy, Kunene Region, north-west Namibia. The school has been operating out of two tatty army tents. This short video explains the need https://vimeo.com302202240   

The traditional leader, Headman Fanuel Ndjiwa, is a conservationist, and an exemplary leader. His aim is to offer schooling to 150 children. He is committed to the AfriCat Livestock Protection Programme (LPP) and is instrumental in minimising the persecution of large carnivores in his area of jurisdiction. AfriCat’s wants to support this pro-active community by helping the development of the school. The school will consist of classrooms, staff room, library/computer room, showers and toilets, a kitchen with dining area which doubles up as a communal gathering place. In addition water and electricity need to be sourced, a new water drum is in situ. This work forms a part of AfriCat ‘s Communal Carnivore Conservation and Community Support Programme. An improved learning environment prospects for the children and adults can help the community to prosper.

The original plans have been changed as technical issues developed during construction with care taken to utilise the work that had been undertaken. The community have been actively involved, choosing a site preparing the ground and helping the development and construction. The good news is that the classrooms, staff room, kitchen and ablutions blocks are nearing completion much to the delight of all concerned. AfriCat decided given the delays and the logistics involved to go for the whole development now.
