About Us

The Namibian Educational Trust was established in 2007 to help children in the Kunene District of North West Namibia. The Trust helps fund Ehomba Combined School and the 12 small local schools in the area. The Trust is focused on providing teacher training, curriculum support, school facilities and ongoing support for both students and teachers.


The key purposes of The Trust are:

 

1. To support the principal and teachers at Ehomba School;

2. To improve the educational standards and equipment for the children of the region.

3. To ensure that the children of the region attain the maximum level of basic education in order to unlock future opportunities; and

4. To offer scholarships to children who excel so the children from this region will have an opportunity of a tertiary education, an option currently denied them because the closest secondary school is a 110 kilometres away.


Trustees of the Namibian Educational Trust are: Mr Burton Shipley and Mr Garry Green.  Educational leader for the Trust projects is Mrs Mary Ashby-Green, former principal, phonics lead teacher and consultant. Dame Jenny Shipley is the founder and patron of the Trust.
