Practicum Students spread hope
The United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) and 17 Practicum students from local Secondary Schools, selected because of their strong interest in the work of the UN, hand made cards for Namibian cancer patients to ‘spread hope’. This was part of their cycle of learning where they had to practically associate with the assigned activities to be performed in the workplace such as research, collecting information from diverse sources, writing reports, creativity (reciting /composing poems, come up with skits or artwork) to express or complement their work or presentation on the UN International Observances and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The students learned about the importance of volunteerism and getting involved with various projects, develop technical, social, and academic skills that couldn’t be learned in a classroom environment.
