About

Ignatius is a pastor by profession for over 8 years. He grew up in Windhoek with passion and love for the community, especially kids. Ignatius is 32 years, married and father of three children: 7, 4 and six months old. Cathleen is 19 years old, grew up together with her Grandmother in Windhoek/Havana. She is a single mother of an almost two-year old daughter, which is the reason she dropped out of school. Cathleen is an active church member with a passion for kids and love for the bible. She approached Pastor Ignatius with the idea of a daycare centre, which came from her own experience of dropping out of school, and wanting to provide others with a better foundation in life. Her personal vision is to complete Grade 10/12 through NAMCOL and then study Early Childhood Education to become a teacher.

Our project name is Victory Day Care and Soup Kitchen, which we are running for one year now. It was created by two youth members: Ignatius and Cathleen, with the aim to improve the living standard of the kids and to educate them in Christian Values.

Our Aim

This place will be open to feed the children of all the tribes in Havana, because we observed that many day care centres are often having children from only one tribe. Our aim is to provide a safe haven for the at-risk children of Havana (some get indeed kidnapped when on the street, or they remain uneducated and not cared for) and to help them seek for a bright future.

Our current situation

We operate from a church building (zinc):
  1.   We already cater for 15 children age: 1-5 (already quite diverse but not all the tribes yet)
  2.   Cathleen is the care-taker, supported by Pastor Ignatius, who organises support
  3. There is only one small stove for cooking all the meals for the children.
  4. Contributions from parents are voluntary, some give N$ 50-100, but many cannot afford. We understand their situation and take their children in anyway, but that is not sustainable.
 

What we’re asking for

We need about N$ 15,000 for
    1.   A bigger and more suitable stove and gas to cook with,
    2.   food, blankets and other material neede,
    3.   basic furniture, like chairs/tables to sit on and carpets to play on,
    4.   and also different toys and other play/learning materials.
    5. We are also open for any other ways of support. THANK YOU!
