Need Our Centre
From Ages 2 through 18
Many children in Namibia migrate from the north with their guardians in search of a better life.
They drop out of school, or never go to begin with, because of extreme poverty, lack of basic needs, and/or no documentation.
Clean water where they live is from a communal tap that costs money.
They might share a communal toilet with dozens of people, or they use riverbeds or any place outside.
An average of nine people live with them in the tin house.
If they are lucky, they are living with an auntie, or grandmother, or uncle. Some still have a mother or father who is struggling.
Check out the slideshow below to see inside the homes of some of our children.
