Ongula Community Development Centre
Teaching at a Local School
Voluntourism and Experteering in Namibia
Ongula Village Homestead Lodge has been in existence since 2012 and started its social engagement 2015 in order to organise volunteers and experteers to teach English, Mathematics and Computer Literacy. We work close with schools in our community to assist in the above listed subjects and built a community development centre to support children an young adults in Education, Computer lessons and Youth empowerment. We also work to foster cross-cultural understanding through travel and volunteer experiences in Namibia.
Ongula Village Homestead Lodge is on the assignment to enhance livelihoods at the rural area in northern Namibia through education. By supporting local children, young adults and women with education and giving them a secure place to learn; we want to impact necessary skills, ideas, information and critical thinking. Children need prospects and a future goal to perform at school and pass Grade 10 with a remarkable result.
Volunteers and Experteers will assist in the morning program with English and Mathematics at a local school by helping and supporting the teachers as well as the learners with questions and in parts where they are struggling. In the after school program we need help to plan and implement fun and educational games, which always have an emphasis on developing important life skills such as team work and leadership. Volunteers and Experteers may also be involved in Homework support, English proficiency and Mathematic lessons.
The Computer literacy is designed to teach local children and young adults on skills in computers such as basic PC literacy, word processing and internet use. Assignments such as essay writing, internet research and media presentations will be done on local topics in Namibia.
Our mission is to connect national / international travellers and students with meaningful volunteer opportunities to support local communities and development in Namibia.
Ongula Village Homestead Lodge wants to give passionate and skilled volunteers / experteers from all over the world the chance to learn about the Ovambo culture while providing needed help and knowledge to the local community.
The programs are designed to comfort volunteers and experteers equally and give everybody the chance to assist us in our efforts to provide children, young adults and women with a better education and brighter future.
