Our projects and aims
Together with Monica Imanga the
initiative to this webpage and fundraising project was taken by
us, Frida Nilson, Caroline Johansson and Hannah Fisher Wadman.
As a nurse student Frida worked as
a trainee at Katatura hospital in dec 08. During her last week in
Namibia she met Monica Imanga at Home of Good Hope. She was impressed
with Monica´s work and moved by the children. Frida felt that she
wanted to do something to help Monica help the children. Back in Sweden
Frida inspired us two others, Caroline and Hannah and we
together collected money from friends and family.
In september 09 we went to Namibia
and Home of Good Hope. Together with Monica, the Goreangab community
and 3 german engineering students the collected money from Sweden was
used to build a house for the children. Furniture, a blackboard and
schoolmaterial were also bought. The house is now used as a place for
the children to eat in the shade and away from the traffic, which
was not possible before. It is also used for home education (for
children who can´t afford school), and for a place to do homework.
After spending 3 months in Namibia
we went back to Sweden but are planning to return later this year
(2010). As there are a lot that can be done to help the children we
have started this fundraising project. Together with Monica our
wish is to improve life for the children and depending on the results
of the fundraising our aims are the following:
Food & Nutrition:
Give the children two meals a day (today they get one), which will
cost about 3800 namibian dollars a month (350 euro.) We also aim to
implement vitamin supplementation and if economicly possible add
milk,fruit and veggies to their diet.
is important to give the children a chance for a better future. We want
to put all the children of age in school.
We want to create a safer environment around Home of Good Hope which
includes improving the surroundings with for example fences
and signs by the road. A long term aim is to build an orphanage for the
