NamPower has, through its Foundation, invested over N$1,2 million in equipment and infrastructural renovation at Motsomi Primary and C. Heuva Secondary schools in the Aminius Constituency of the Omaheke Region.

Motsomi Primary School accommodates 392, while C. Heuva Secondary School accommodates 671 learners.

The Foundation renovated the laundry room and installed an industrial washing machine and tumble dryer at the Motsomi Primary School.

Before the investment, laundry at the school was done by hand, an exercise which has proven to be physically demanding over the years given the amount of washing that had to be done.

C. Heuva Secondary School received a refurbished computer laboratory to equip the learners with the necessary computer literacy skills required in today’s digital age.

Speaking during the handing over of the facilities, the Chairperson of the NamPower Foundation Advisory Committee, Dr Simeon Amunkete, emphasised the importance of creating an environment where dreams can be realised and where ideas can flourish into reality.

“NamPower’s investment in these schools is premised on the notion that a conducive environment contributes greatly to the wellbeing of the learners and in turn, to their educational performance,” Dr. Amunkete said.

“As we hand over these facilities today, let us remember that it is not just about bricks and mortar, hammer and saw; it is about investing in human potential.”

Receiving the donations on behalf of the two schools, the Principal of Motsomi Primary School, Magreth Gaowetse, described the donations as valuable and crucial to the two rural schools.

She noted that the burden of using hands to do laundry will now be in the past, while the refurbished computer lab for C. Heuva Secondary School will reduce the workload on teachers and improve the learners’ computer skills.

“The gifts are going to aid with efficiency of doing an excellent job in the future. We are very grateful to NamPower.”
