Bagging cool school prizes

“Education is where it all starts, especially in Namibia where academic success is held in such high regard,” says Sanlam’s Denille Roostee.
“However, many school children and their parents lack the funds to buy school bags and stationery. Having the basic tools for the job is essential and going to school is no different. It is difficult to learn anything if you do not have pens, pencils, exercise books and a bag to carry them in,” she says.
“That is why Sanlam is committed to ensuring more children receive a good education in Namibia and sees this as part of its responsibility to Namibia’s youth.
“Sanlam Namibia wants to use this competition to encourage all students to commit to their education in order to achieve new heights, as they are the future of our country.”
Sanlam Namibia has invested in numerous educational initiatives under the management of Hilaria Graig. One of these projects is the Sanlam Bursary project, committing N$200 000 to the development of young Namibians in 2019.
