Speaking at the event, NSIF trustee Irene Simeon-Kurtz said that the NSIF is gratified by its contributions towards uplifting the Namibian nation.
“However, we still believe there is a need for a collective and robust interventionist strategy to prepare the country for an uptake to helping many young Namibians grow into becoming active participating members of our economy.”
Receiving the two classrooms on behalf of the school, Deputy Minister of Education Arts and Culture Caley Faustina, thanked Namport, adding that the “handover is a clear indication that the ministry and friends like Namport are serious in achieving the sustainable development goals outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership”.
The NSIF is Namport’s investment arm through which it reaches the community by investing in worthwhile projects such as the building of educational infrastructure, health infrastructure, medical equipment and other social needs.
