Ndeulipula Hamutumwa Trust the pillar of Namibian sports

while other struggle kids are fighting government for their survival, one exile kid Ndeulipula Hamutumwa, has not been idle – he sponsors disadvantaged children to realise their sporting talents.
Ndeulipula is a member of the Namibian National Olympics Committee (NNOC) as well as chairman of the Ndeulipula Trust formed in February last year.
The Trust sponsors youth who want to pursue sports; equips schools in enhancing sporting activities; pays school fees, provides uniforms as well as stationery for disadvantaged rural children.
So far the Trust that was officially opened by former President and Founding Father, Dr Sam Nujoma, has given sporting equipment and funds to Gibeon Primary School in Karas; Caprivi primary schools - Vyfrand Primary School, Brandon Siwae and Children of Zion.
Hamutumwa was in exile in Angola and returned to Namibia after independence.
He attended St Paul’s in Windhoek up to Grade 8 and was a basketball player in 1994.
But it was at the University of Namibia (Unam) where his basketball playing career took off resulting in him becoming the coach/ administrator for the team.
After Unam, Hamutumwa became the president of the Namibia Basketball Federation from 2003 to 2004.
“The aim is to identify potential and support children along their journey both educationally and in sports because I believe that education and sports are like twins. They go hand-in-hand” he says.
This year Ndeulipula is visiting schools across the country searching for talented young boys and girls to take under his wing.
“Every Namibian youth deserves to find a role and responsibility in development because development cannot just be left in the hands of the Government,” he explains.
Ndeulipula advises all Namibian youths who love sports to go out and live their dream through sports.
