A partnership for change

16 April 2019 | Business

On 9 April, Hollard reached out once again and this time made a very generous donation towards the Pupkewitz Foundation.

Hollard is an insurance company that reaches out to local communities, adding value to the aspirations and dreams of the most vulnerable in society.

An amount of N$440 000 was handed over to the Pupkewitz Foundation, which shares the same ideology with Hollard, in terms of investing back into the community through identifying issues that desperately need attention.

Deputy gender minister Lucia Witbooi, as well as education ministry executive director Sanet Steenkamp.

The money will be distributed in four regions and will go towards the development and education of children.

Hollard believes that children’s issues in Namibia should outweigh all other issues, because they are the future. The two organisations have partnered up to build kitchens and equip them with cooking facilities. They will be able to assist nine schools in the Oshikoto, Ohangwena and Oshana regions. The initiative serves to improve the quality, hygiene and the overall well-being of disadvantaged children.

A fully-equipped kitchen facility will be built in the Oshikoto Region, while kitchen facilities will also be set up in Oshana. In Ohangwena, they will be drilling a borehole to provide clean water to a community in need. In the Hardap Region, an early childhood development centre will be renovated and upgraded to ensure that any child that attends will get the best possible assistance and guidance.

At Pupkewitz they believe that by caring for fellow Namibians, they develop a deeper appreciation of people, which in turn allows them to better understand and serve their customers.

Witbooi expressed her deepest thanks to these two companies.

“Let us not allow any Namibian child to go to school hungry, knowing that we had the power to make a difference and didn’t do so,” she said.

She also congratulated the private sector for their efforts.

Hollard believes that by working together, the biggest difference can be made, thus the partnership with the Pupkewitz Foundation.

True success is shared success and if you are in a position to help people, you should do so without restraint.
