‘Engage in reading’ – Amadhila
30 June 2019 | Education
Speaking to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Kenneth Matengu, Amadhila explained how she would like to see Namibian youth more actively engaged in reading. “Over the course of my life, reading has been able to take me places I never imagined, and the youth must be made aware of this,” she said.
Matengu welcomed the generous donation, which adds more collections to UNAM’s existing library. Thereafter she was given a scope of the university’s size in terms of staff and student numbers, along with the vast geographical presence that covers almost every corner of the country.
The books donated are a combination of academic and non-academic text.
UNAM’s librarian, Josef Ndinoshiho, welcomed the donation, saying that the books on surgery will be particularly useful for the university’s efforts to help clinicians gain access to libraries, even while working in most remote areas, such as Opuwo.
