A group of 14 deserving students were this week the proud recipients of Telecom Namibia’s annual bursaries that will see them study at the country’s two prestigious institutions of higher learning.
Telecom granted bursaries valued at N$1.3 million to fourteen prospective students who will enrol at Unam and the Polytchnic of Namibia. The new group of bursary recipients join other 82 students who are current bursary holders.
A bursary ceremony was held in Windhoek earlier this week, overseen by the Deputy Minister of Education, Dr David Namwandi, Telecom MD, Frans Ndoroma and the Senior Manager for Training and Development Dr Raimo Naanda.
The focus of the Telecom Namibia Bursary Scheme is to build human resources capacity mainly in the fields of accounting, electronic engineering, telecommunications engineering and information technology to address both company-specific and national skills requirements.
The bursary recipients for the 2013 academic year are Loundy /Goagoseb for Bachelor of Accounting at the Polytechnic, Jennifer Smith for Bachelor of Accounting at Unam, Gerson Kanduuombe for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Polytechnic, Tuuliki Autoni for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Polytechnic, Herman Shikusho for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Polytechnic, Limbere Steven for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at Unam, Romario Uirab for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Polytechnic, Johannes Amakali for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Polytechnic, Visken Sililo for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at Unam, Kautoora Mukuambi for Bachelor of Electrical Engineering at the Polytechnic, Linea Kayavala for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at Unam, Kaliketu Hashipara for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at UNAM, Hawakeshe Kamwangha for Bachelor of Telecommunication Engineering at the Polytechnic, and Ailonga Aupindi for Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Polytechnic.
Ndoroma said the bursaries granted are but a small contribution to the national effort of developing the skills of young Namibians.
He said: “We are giving these young people this opportunity because of an awareness that the achievement of our strategic objective of a sustainable, world-class company depends in the long term on the level of investment in quality education and training we are making today.”
Namwandi said education is the shared responsibility of all stakeholders.
