The Girls Day creates awareness among young women on career opportunities in the technical fields

The network said the visit enabled young girls to network and get access directly to the industry and women who have already successfully established themselves in a technical career.

“The girls had an opportunity to also engage with Namport female employees about the different career options available at Namport,” the network added.

The educational excursion was organised by GAN through partners with among others the Namibian Employers’ Federation, GIZ Namibia, Commercial Advancement Training Scheme and Namibia Training Authority

GAN Namibia is a network of business organisations that create work readiness programmes for youth and foster skills for the business.
