After school programme career week concludes
The after school programme which offers academic tutorials, life skills and basketball training, the Basketball Artists School (BAS) Foundation in Windhoek-Katutura successfully completed their BAS Career Week at the beginning of this month.
The career week was part of the life skills curriculum and saw around 30 young people between 12 and 19 years take part in numerous activities in order to explore different careers, gain practical experience and find their talents.
Next to classic careers, like the fire department and police,students got a chance to familiarise themselves with careers like, pilot, chartered accountant, baker, farmer, carpenter, among others.
“We succeeded to have almost 30 different activities in one week, which was a lot of work, but finally all participants benefited a lot and some even got their first job offers,” said BAS Coordinator Malakia Matias who organized the week together with Director Ramah Mumba, Operations Manager Lucia Mokomele and DOSB expert Frank Albin.
BAS Foundation is supported by the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with the project ‘Free Throw – Basketball Artists against HIV & AIDS.
