Last week, the FNB Namibia Foundation, as main sponsor, handed N$47 000 to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister at the Coblenz Combined School in the Otjozondjupa region. The money goes towards the Deputy Prime Minister’s initiative to encourage marginalized communities to go back to school and to continue their formal education.
In 2011 FNB Namibia committed their assistance to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister to become a part of this worthy cause for the next three years as the bank was convinced that these efforts will bear fruit and that the SAN, one of the oldest and most distinct cultures, will benefit from the motivation and encouragement.
At the handover Olsen Kahiri of FNB Namibia said that supporting educational initiatives and especially those that benefit marginalised communities are two of the main areas of support of the FNB Foundation. “We at FNB Namibia are committed to our corporate social responsibility and to the fact that we remain [the] government’s ally in the constant fight against the social ills like poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, etc. At FNB Namibia we are aware of the stumbling blocks that our government and especially the Ministry of Education face. It is important for the private sector to lend a helping hand. Together, albeit small, we can make a difference and FNB Namibia is proud to be of assistance in this important sector of our society.”
