The program, called One Economy that was launched in May, seeks to help children from poor families with fees.

It also aims to link Namibia’s informal and formal economies to harness raw talent.

A special unit within the program, Secondary Education Talented Individual Program, will fund 25 students starting from 2017.

There are 14 girls and 11 boys who will receive funding for uniforms, accommodation, tuition and other costs.

These children will be enrolled at two top schools in Windhoek – Gymnasium School and Windhoek High School -that are partners to the program.

Announcing the beneficiaries Tuesday in Windhoek, Geingos said her organization will spend about 130,000 Namibian dollars (9,000 U.S dollars) per child. Enditem
