Background of Back to School Namibia
In Namibia, many kids are dropping out of school because their families can not afford to pay for stationery or other school materials. Years of drought and the economic challenges caused by the COVID19 pandemic have continued to worsen that situation.
We are a group of friends living in Windhoek that has decided to try to help kids to remain in school by raising funds, connecting people and institutions, inquiring the necessities of remote schools and organizing the delivery of much needed materials to them.
BTS connects with the teaching staff of remote schools either directly or through regional contacts asking them about their current needs.
With the raised funds, BTS buys stationery and educational material for those schools.
BTS then asks travelers and lodges to help deliver the materials to the schools.
