MOBILE telecommunications company MTC handed over new classrooms at Okondaunue Primary School in Opuwo on Thursday.
The classrooms were built under an initiative in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture and 'Friends of Education' to help rural schools in either building new classrooms or renovating existing ones.
This is part of the MTC Rural Schools Project to renovate dilapidated schools or build new classrooms to ensure that Namibian children learn in a conducive and safe environment.
“Blessed are those who help others and today is a very special day for us learners. We were in dire need of the proper classes because some grades were taught under trees, tents and classes made out of corrugated zinc sheets in this heat.
“It is indeed a relief that we now have a proper learning environment and we cannot thank MTC enough for the gesture,” said Gift Tomona, a pupil at the school.
Launched in July this year, the project identified Okondaunue Primary School in the Kunene and Sinzogoro Combined School in Kavango West as the first beneficiaries of the project.
The MTC chief executive officer Licky Erastus said the company believes in ensuring that every Namibian child is taught in a decent classroom, adding that MTC is proud to be delivering on its promise.
“We are pleased to officially hand over this block of classrooms we promised you three months ago. We made a commitment through the MTC Rural Schools Project to build four blocks of classrooms for two schools in two different regions. We are here to deliver on our promise, because when we make commitments at MTC, we deliver,” said Erastus.
