Projects in Namibia

Community Economic Development

Volunteers establish Entrepreneurship Clubs for students, revamp businesses which are fully managed and operated by entrepreneurship learners, and create linkages between their schools and the business community.

Education

The Peace Corps in Namibia has made substantial contributions to the reform of the educational system in teacher training, classroom teaching, and subject matter support to teachers, especially in English, mathematics, and science. In addition, Volunteers provide direct support to parents and other community members to increase both school and community materials and human and financial resources. Activities that have become part of Volunteers’ work include recreational sports, library development, girls clubs, HIV/AIDS awareness activities, environmental conservation projects, adult literacy, and community development.

President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief

Since 2002, the Peace Corps in Namibia has supported the government of Namibia’s efforts to stem the spread of HIV/AIDS through more effective educational programming and youth outreach and community-based activities.
