Mother’s Voice visit The Economist newspaper

Fifteen learners from the Mother’s Voice Grassroots Orphanage in Katutura this week paid a visit to The Economist newspaper offices. The visit formed part of an educational guidance tour organised through the Christina Swart-Opperman Aids Orphan Foundation Trust in preparation for their future career options. During the visit, learners were briefed on the various processes involved in newspaper production while interacting with journalists and workers form the marketing department. Mother’s Voice Grassroots assists 185 orphans and vulnerable children on a daily basis and has been a beneficiary of the Swart-Opperman Trust since 2005.
