School for the Visually Impaired gets boost from community project fund

The School for the Visually Impaired in Khomasdal recently received goods and items of clothing from the staff members of Bank Windhoek’s main branch.

A few years ago staff members from the Windhoek Branch decided to start a community project fund to which we contribute a certain amount of money on a monthly basis. This is out of free will. The aim is to support and assist our community where we can. This time around, it came to our attention that there is a need at the School of the Visually Impaired,” said Maryna Moller-Bosman, Manager: Service and Administration at the Windhoek Branch.

As a group, we decided to contribute in the form of basic needs like school shoes, socks, tracksuits, toiletries and blankets. Additionally, we also decided to buy the school a washing machine to use whenever possible,” she added.

The staff members believe that they can contribute to the children’s wellbeing by being proactive. “As Bank Windhoek staff members we too have the commitment and responsibility to reflect the banks values in our everyday lives. This is done by being responsive, impactful, having initiative and being engaged with our community. We are proud of this initiative and believe that this donation will assist the children at the school,” said Sharon Jenneker, Administration Support Clerk at Bank Windhoek.

The school’s administrative staff and learners were grateful for this sponsorship. To each and every staff member at Bank Windhoek Branch, on behalf of the entire school, thank you very much, for your personal involvement. This initiative will assist the learners at our school,” said Marillize Fransman, Principal of the School of the Visually Impaired.

Caption: Learners, the schools administration and Windhoek Branch staff members were all smiles on the day of the donation.
