In response to its needs, the Okangwati Combined School in the Kunene region was recently the beneficiary of a handsome donation from Hangana Seafood - a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group. Part of this donation included 20 desks ordered from and manufactured by O&L subsidiary, Kraatz.
Situated 110km west of Opuwo, the school hosts approximately 510 learners from grades 0 to 10, with 20 teachers, three (3) cleaners and 15 institutional workers at the hostel. The larger number of learners are from marginalized communities, including from the Ovadhemba, Ovatua and Ovahimba.
In addition to the desks, Hangana also donated stationery, balls for the school’s football, netball and volleyball sport codes, cans of fish, as well as clothes and shoes for the children, donated by Hangana Seafood employees.
“The trip was a very memorable experience. I thank the company for giving me an opportunity to share and care for those in need. I truly appreciate it,” said Linda Shivolo - one of the Hangana Seafood team members who traveled to the Kunene, to hand over the donation.
