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.
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.
