Hardap WAD receives computers from Debmarine

The Women's Action for Development (WAD) says unemployment figures increase every year with the addition of large numbers of school leavers and drop-outs.
Executive Director Salathiel Shinedima says these people are unable to find jobs in the labour market.
Shinedima noted that this makes the situation look grim since Namibia's economy grows slowly and struggles to absorb all the job seekers.
Another factor which compounds the situation is that the school curricula do not prepare learners adequately to be taken up into jobs without further preparation.
He said non-governmental organisations and private sector companies such as Debmarine Namdeb and WAD are compelled to assume collective responsibility to meaningfully contribute towards preparing young Namibians for the labour market.
Shinedima was speaking during the handing over of 16 computers from Debmarine Namdeb Foundation to the WAD Hardap Training Centre at Rehoboth on Tuesday,
At the same occassion, Executive Manager of the Debmarine Namdeb Foundation Janita von Wielligh congratulated the staff of WAD for doing an excellent job despite the difficulties they face.
