Aranos, 17 November 2023 – In a groundbreaking move that will undoubtedly illuminate the educational landscape of the Hardap Region, Telecom Namibia proudly handed over 10 computers to the esteemed Office of the Governor of the Hardap Region, Hon. Rev. Salomon April.
This landmark event marked a resounding testament to Telecom Namibia's unwavering commitment to fostering ICT proficiency and access in the realm of education, while simultaneously bridging the digital divide that often hinders progress in the Hardap Region and across Namibia as a whole.
The importance of education in unlocking the potential of the youth and preparing them for future leadership roles cannot be overstated. In today’s digital age, access to information and technology is crucial for learners to thrive and succeed. Computers have revolutionized the Namibian education sector, transforming the learning and teaching experience.
Through the provision of these computers, Telecom Namibia is not only supporting the delivery of quality education but also empowering learners with access to the internet, which serves as their “information highway” and pathway to education. The internet opens up a world of knowledge and opportunities, enabling learners to explore new horizons, conduct research, and connect with peers and experts from around the globe.
The handover, which took place at the Rooiduin Secondary School in Aranos, exemplifies Telecom Namibia’s commitment to CSR and ESG, showcasing its dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of Namibian learners.
“Telecom Namibia firmly believes that the development of Namibia is a collective responsibility,” stated Dr Stanley Shanapinda, Chief Executive Officer at Telecom Namibia. “As a responsible corporate citizen, we continuously allocate available resources to support initiatives that contribute to the social and economic growth and development of our people. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ESG efforts aim to build and foster harmonious relationships and provide benefits to the communities in which we operate.”
Recognizing the digital divide as a significant challenge in the country, Telecom Namibia acknowledges that many learners still lack access to computers and the internet, limiting their opportunities for growth and development. By providing these computers, Telecom Namibia takes a step towards bridging this divide and ensuring that every learner has an equal chance to succeed.
Telecom Namibia extends its gratitude to the Office of Hon. Rev. Salomon April, Governor of the Hardap Region, for accepting these computers on behalf of the learners in the region. The company encourages all recipients to make the best use of these resources and continue striving for excellence in education.
In conclusion, Telecom Namibia emphasizes that education serves as the foundation upon which the nation’s future is built. By investing in ICT development, the company invests in the leaders of tomorrow. Together, Telecom Namibia and the community will work towards a future where every learner has access to the tools and resources, they need to reach their full potential.
