Sanlam Namibia has pumped N$300 000 in ‘My culture My Life’ road show that will kick off from the 10th to 16th of June in Zambezi region. 

The corporate social responsibility program is an initiative aimed at promoting and preserving the diverse Namibian culture among the youth in particular school learners, manager of corporate communication, Hilaria Graig has said at the launch of the program. 

“In an ever evolving world, young people especially do not know or understand why certain cultural practices take place or their importance. With globalization it has become important for us to celebrate our cultures but more importantly it is important that we teach our youth about their cultures as a way to keep them alive,” she said. 

She added that this was the only way to ensure that young people not only know about their culture but that it instils a sense of pride in them, understanding and appreciation of their cultures and that of their peers.

Graig also said that the planned roadshow will be hosted in the areas of Katima Mulilo, Chinchimane Village, Sangwali Mayuni and Bukalo Village. 

“The project entails the team visiting selected schools in a given region, engaging with learners, teachers and traditional leaders on their culture. The fourth edition of the project will see them visiting selected five schools namely Mayuni SS; Sangwali SS ; Caprivi SSS ; Simataa SS and Sanjo SS,” she said. 

She added that the team will be accompanied by acclaimed Namibia musicians originally born and raised in the region including Promise; Vuyo and Belle Markosh who all have cultural links to the targeted audience, tradition and culture.
