Each year generous donors continue to support our project. Burton and Jenny often accept speaking engagements on the basis that the organisation makes a donation to the Namibian Educational Trust. We raise around NZ$15,000 each year through this avenue. It allows us to support the ongoing extra-curricular activities of the learners, for example allowing them to travel to regional sports events, to have extra resources in their classroom, to provide sports equipment which is far beyond the means of their local families and the education funding system. We are also able to provide teacher support and text books, including library books and technology, which again is not available to all schools in Namibia.
We are grateful for the support and the opportunities to raise funds in this way that will allow the Namibian Educational Trust to flourish.
