Through physical activities we really believe we can manage to keep children far from the road, teach them education and respect for life, create activities indoor and outdoor to generate a meeting point and secure aggregation place for the community.
Recipients: children and teenagers aged 6 to 20 year. A place where to read a book, talk, and participate in training sessions on HIV, alcohol, drugs and other communicable diseases and socially relevant themes as respect of the culture and sex. We are in contact with the social services to help people about documents and knowledge of the Namibians’ social activities and law (for example, how to ask a birth certificate).
Happydu Village aims to respond to the community’s concrete needs.
