Old mutual handed an amount of N$30 000 to the “Beautiful Kidz” Day Care Centre in Katutura recently.
Beautiful Kidz is a Day Care facility providing care and support to vulnerable children and their families.
Not only do the children get offered primary school education; the centre addresses the multiple issues relating to children affected by impoverishment and HIV/AIDS.
The school Board's Director, Brian Kinghorn, said the donation will help strengthen their work at the centre.
The centre offers refuge to 90 children who attend daily and are fed with three meals per day by the school, which is a faith-based organisation.
He pointed out that the care centre also offers a youth program for children who cannot do their homework at home; hence end up not taking up their studies seriously.
Due to the lack of serious supervision from home, most of those children end up involved in criminal activities.
“Through the youth programmes, we help them to forge a future for themselves through various programs offered during the year even on holidays. Furthermore, we offer basic training courses to the adult people in the community.” he adds.
Currently, the centre has established a needle work project; initiated as an income generating facility for parents and care-givers who have to look after vulnerable children.
The Old Mutual distribution team head by Lionel Kannemeyer was overwhelmed by the multifunction of the centre to its neighbouring community.
“It is just amazing how this Centre does so much for the school, not only for under privileged kids as well as for the adult community. Our office always give a donation to a deserving school each year, as we believe it is our responsibility as a corporate and individuals to uplift the communities,” said Old Mutual's Trevor Ndjadila.
