 The Talented Individual Program receives valuable support from a local company

The Talented Individual Program has received valuable support from a local company.
Bidvest Namibia and its fishing trust, Namsov, have donated 450 000 dollars to the program to buy educational material for quality teaching.
Bidvest Namibia's Director for Commercial and Business Development, Theo Mberirua announced that the money will be paid out over a two year period.
The program helps learners from informal settlements, rural areas and poor communities with outstanding marks to attend quality schools and receive life coaching from Grade Eight to 12.
25 learners have already been selected from public schools across Namibia to begin their studies at Windhoek High School and Windhoek Gymnasium private school next year.
Patron of the programme, First Lady Monica Geingos says it can help young people break out of the poverty cycle and enjoy the same opportunities as those from higher income households.
This will enable them to choose careers through which they can make meaningful contributions in their communities.
The Office of the First Lady and the One Economy Foundation have pledged to account for every cent of the donated money.
