The Daweb Constituency Office on Thursday handed over material to 17 women so they can start working on the newly designed uniform of the Daweb Primary School in Maltahöhe.

The constituency office also handed over donations of food, blankets and mattresses to three people who lost their belongings in fires.

The material and other donations cost N$45 000.

Daweb Constituency Councillor Herculus Jantze said President Hage Geingob declared war against poverty and this has been outlined in the Harambee Prosperity Plan (HPP).

“What you are witnessing today is in line with the HPP, where the government is trying to address poverty issues via promotion of entrepreneurship. The president further declared 2018 the year of reckoning, thus he wants to see action and tangible results and not political speeches and empty promises to the electorate,” he said.

Jantze said the Daweb Constituency Office has embraced the calls from State House and central government and it is in line with Government's wishes to achieve development.

Strategy

“The constituency office has worked out a strategy in which these 17 women will be capacitated through programmes of the ministry of poverty eradication and the ministry of gender equality and child welfare so that this gesture becomes sustainable and can bring social and economic change to their living conditions,” Jantze said.

He urged the beneficiaries to take the opportunity seriously.

“Remember there are other people who could have benefitted from this programme that you have been chosen for, so consider yourself lucky and make good use of the opportunity granted to you,” Jantze said.

Maltahöhe is a village in south-central Namibia, situated about 110 kilometres west of Mariental. It has about 6 000 inhabitants. - Nampa
