De Riet Kindergarden, Namibia, February 2016


A kindergarden in De-Riet was officially opened on the 20 January 2016. One of the old buildings at De-Riet called ‘Die Winkel’ was renovated by community members who worked tirelessly on the site while stakeholders such as Wilderness Safaris and their partners, the Torra Conservancy supplied materials and meals. The building consists of one main hall that will serve as the classroom and three additional rooms that will house the teacher and some children coming from far. There will also be a storeroom. The kindergarden will employ a full-time teacher who will be paid by government.  The school will enroll approximately 20-30 children.  A kindergarden committee was elected that will oversee further needs of the centre and liaise with stakeholders.
