One Economy Foundation reaches N$4 million pledges
The One Economy Foundation (ONE) recently held its 8th Annual Fundraising Gala Dinner at the Windhoek Country Club and Resort in Windhoek.
This year’s theme, “Partnering on our Next,” marked the launch of the #BeFree Youth Campus, a versatile facility aimed at collaborating and serving the youth of Namibia.
The event held last week was graced by the presence of the President, HE Dr Hage Geingob, accompanied by his wife, the First Lady of Namibia, Monica Geingos.
The programme included addresses by Geingos, speakers from the One Economy Foundation management team, a youth-led fireside chat, and various performing artists.
Geingos emphasized that the launch of the #BeFree Youth Campus on 1 September 2023 marked a new chapter for the foundation, designed to address multiple issues faced by young people.
During the event, MC Cliff Shikuambi announced an impressive total pledges of N$4,200,000, surpassing the target of N$4 million.
These contributions will play a significant role in advancing the foundation’s mission and impacting the lives of the Namibian youth positively.
In his closing remarks, Festus Mukungu, Director at ONE, expressed gratitude for the generosity and support that contributed to the success of the 8th Annual Fundraising Gala Dinner.
He also extended thanks and appreciation to the President for his enduring contribution to the One Economy Foundation.
Mukungu said he is confident that the #BeFree Youth Campus holds the potential to impact the lives of young people for generations to come, emphasizing the foundation’s enduring commitment.
