Considering that one in three children in Namibia grows up in poor households. Whilst recognizing that poverty has deep and long-lasting impacts on the lives and development of children in Namibia, especially their health and education. The Foundation believes that if poverty is not addressed at an early age it is being passed on from generation to generation and, as commonly argued, the first step towards reducing poverty is to understand it. Hence, our focus on the need to cultivate a culture of food security, improved livelihood support infrastructures and sustained and strengthened institutional and individual capacities, all geared towards poverty alleviation, sustainable development centred on the desire to improve access to basic necessities for all Namibians residing in Omaheke region.
As priorities, our efforts will be geared towards mitigating the adverse effects of child poverty on their health, education and enjoyment of other fundamental freedoms and rights.
On the premise that the Foundation has provided and strive to continuously provide alternatives and is committed to addressing the plights of the vulnerable and the disadvantaged destitute communities within the region in its means. Based on this, we have analyzed communities’ backgrounds in terms of poverty level and access to livelihoods infrastructures extending access to clean and potable drinking water (for both animals and humans) and to basic health services at the community and school level.
This entail that our interventions are directed at assisting and comprehending efforts aimed at addressing equitable access to educational, health and economic services by all, through improvement and/or establishment of new livelihoods support infrastructures guaranteed through sustained and enhanced capacities of individuals and institutions. Overall, we envisage building and cultivating a unique culture of a food-secure region through the implementation of the Food Security Programme.
