Inspirational patron is the Key of I am
“Furthermore, we believe that this platform will shape character and instil a sense of national pride in our younger generation,” stated the Dalarize Development Project organizers of I Am The Key Children Media. The fair is to promote creativity, awaken innovation, provide basic financial literacy and social entrepreneurship skills to children; whilst instilling a sense of responsibility and accountability in them.
Now entering its third season, I Am the Key Children Media is an early childhood developmental vehicle which uses media as an educational tool for children.. The show helps to develop the child’s first “sense of self” by creating a calm and safe learning environment for children to learn about themselves, as well as others, and the world around them.
30 children between the ages of 5 to 15 will be exhibiting their products, and awards will be awarded for Best Salesperson, Most Innovative Exhibit, Best Presentation, Entrepreneur of the Year (age five to six), Entrepreneur of the Year (age seven to ten), Entrepreneur of the Year (age 11 to15) and Most Supportive School.
Dalah Hapulile, the chairperson of the organizing committee said Michael Amushelelo is an inspirational role model to young children, and children need role models that they can relate to. She said, “Namibia is moving to an information based society, thus we can no longer afford to deprive children of information that is vital for their development, but rather strategically and gradually breakdown these information in a way that children can understand and comprehend.”
Amushelelo was nominated and won the Windhoek lager Business Ambassador for the year 2014, and he is also the founder of Amushe Inc. He said “teaching our children about financial literacy will make them utilize money responsibly and value the power money has to change their lives and to break out of financial difficulties.”
