Location Namibia, Okahandja Windhoek
Project: Pappa House
Pieter van den Dries, founder Pappa House (former Stichting Pappa): ""We have seen with our own eyes that this small scale project does a lot of good things for the needy children in Otjomuisse. Children who would otherwise live on the streets, facing all kinds of problems.""
Pappa House follows children in Okahandja, Namibia, from infant to student. The children receive food, clothing and medical care. Social interaction, sports and games are part of the programme too. They also go to school. From the age of four they go to day care where they follow English lessons and social interaction to prepare them for the government school. The older children are brought to various government schools in Katutura at the expense of Orange Babies. Pappa House finds it important to teach the children a profession so they will be able to provide for themselves.
