Bunk Houses, Kitchen, Dining Hall for
Children Living in Shacks on School Grounds


During a 2019 trip to Namibia, we visited the very rural Oshamukweni School on the northern border of Namibia. What we saw shocked us. Most of the 300 pupils came from villages between 12-26km away, requiring them to stay on school grounds during the school year. This included over 100 students that were 14 years old. Due to no school hostels, these children lived in shacks made of sticks and corrugated iron sheets, and they cooked their food on makeshift fire pits. Some students in closer proximity to the school used donkey carts to travel to school.

Amazingly, this school has a 100% graduation rate! These are truly incredible children, succeeding in some of the worst conditions possible.

As of January, 2022, construction is underway! We look forward to visiting this school for the grand opening of the structure in March or April of 2022!
