Rössing Uranium handed over a donation of 400 school bags with stationery to the Tsumkwe Senior Secondary School, as part of the Women in Media (WiM) Tsumkwe outreach initiative.
Speaking at the donation handover, Rössing Uranium Corporate Communication Manager, Daylight Ekandjo said, “investing in education is key at Rössing Uranium, through initiatives which are run by our Corporate Social Investment vehicle, the Rössing Foundation. We truly believe that education is the cornerstone of progress, and we recognise the role it plays in shaping the future.”
Ms. Ekandjo explained that preparations for this donation dated back to last year, after a request made by the Women in Media to support this initiative. Rössing Uranium committed N$ 250 000 towards this outreach drive.
In acknowledging the plight faced by learners, teachers and the community of Tsumkwe, Ms Ekandjo said, “it is in the face of challenges that resilience is forged, and it is our hope that these school bags and stationery will alleviate some of the burdens, enabling our future employees to focus on their studies and aspire to greater heights. This donation is a small contribution towards a collective goal and it reflects our belief in the potential of the young minds of Tsumkwe and our commitment to fostering educational opportunities in the communities where we live, work and beyond,” she said.
She thanked the Women in Media for the partnership and collaboration, stating that, “It is through such partnerships that we can create a lasting impact, ensuring that every child receives the education they deserve.”
Women in Media founder Limba Mupetami thanked Rössing Uranium for joining hands with WiM and for the contribution. The School Principal Christof Ngavetene also extended his gratitude to Rössing Uranium for the donation.
