We are privileged to be part of a program that will facilitate the promotion of birth registrations and raise awareness of human rights for children in the informal settlements in Katutura. The EU and Fondazione Terre des Hommes Italy (TDH) are funding the program to the tune of N$2,7 million, with the EU contributing 60% of the project costs, and TDH, one of our current major sponsors, funding 40% of the project. Our role in the partnership is to deliver information services along with Hope Initiatives Southern Africa (HISA), and to work closely with the Government of Namibia. We will be setting up an information desk to help caregivers acquire all documentation needed to register for a birth certificate. This office will be located on the plot of land in Havana (Katutura) that we want to purchase for our new centre. We will be open five days a week, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and are targeting orphans and vulnerable children, their families and caregivers, as is our mandate.
