NAC sponsors six organisations
Tamer El-Kallawi, NAC’s Acting CEO, said that at the NAC they believe that community development is a national priority, not only for government, but for all in the corporate sector, and he hopes this donation will change and touch lives. He urged the recipients to ensure that the donations are used for the intended purposes and to transform local communities.
El-Kallawi emphasised the importance of education in society and that it is a key on the NAC agenda of ploughing back into the communities.
Six institutions received financial contributions from the NAC to enable them to initiate and/or achieve their dreams.
Ella Du Plessis High School received N$10.000 towards the acquisition of their school bus; Ondangwa Town Council received N$ 8.000 towards the town’s clean-up initiatives; H. Hambart Mix Pre-Primary and Out of School Centre received N$10.000 for the expansion of the Centre and acquisition of stationary and other relevant materials; Megameno Children Home received N$10.000 in support of their care for underprivileged children; Adam Steve Junior Secondary School received N$12.000 to assist them with the undertaking of educational tours; and The Wildlife and Aircraft Research Namibia Project received N$115.000 to continue their great work of providing the aviation community with the means to minimise bird and wildlife strikes through their revolutionary scientific research.
The recipients were chosen within the NAC’s focus areas: environment protection, tourism promotion, health promotion, educational improvement and nation-building endeavours.
