THE One Ecomony’s Talented Individual Programme (TIP) under the office of The First Lady of Namibia Monica Geingob recently recorded first year anniversary with an award-giving ceremony of its best performers.
The programmes indentifies talented learners from across the country and offer them an opportunity to be mentored and receive psycho-social interventions, in order to promote, character development, psycho-social well-being as well as creating the environment for optimal academic attainment.
The Programme has taken on 26 children who are spread across three schools and through its sub-programmes is also aiming at trying to understand what is going on in the Namibian secondary schooling system.
At the event, Bertus Struwig of Prosperity Group; Christo Burger of Khomas Medical Centre and Werner Ewald of Bannerman Resources made donations including health care insurance and money. Geingos indicated that the donations will go a long way to securing the growth of the TIP and improved care for the learners.
“Your contributions will ensure that they know, that they are standing on the shoulders of giants who have gone before them and watch over them, as they empower themselves through the educational opportunities granted to them,” said Geingos.
“Today served as an exemplification of the extraordinary power which lies within private sector investment in the improved quality of education in Namibia.”
Geingos stressed that education is a societal responsibility and encouraged all to apply consistent energy into education.
