Namibia’s Sibongile vlogging away

Two vloggers join others from around the world to witness what the EU has done for Africa, Asia and Latin America.

07 July 2019 | International

Sibongile Tshabalala who was born in Katima Mulilo, has been selected as one of the vloggers discovering and reporting on EU-funded projects in the country as part of the Faces2Hearts project. She and fellow blogger Konrad Sniady from Poland, are currently visiting several regions and remote areas in Namibia to report on what impact this assistance has on people’s lives.

Sibongile and Konrad are part of a contingent of 20 vloggers from Europe and Africa who are visiting ten countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, collecting hundreds of stories – all aimed at fostering cultural exchanges and human connections across the world.

While travelling in Namibia, the two are covering a wide range of themes including climate action, gender equality, early childhood development, agriculture, renewable energies and wildlife conservation.

Their trip follows their participation of the European Development Days and training in Brussels in June. Now they are travelling through several regions and remote areas in Kavango East, Zambezi, Kunene and Otjozondjupa to discover and report on how the European Union is changing people’s lives for the better in the country. Here they will search for and reveal compelling stories that show real life experiences, giving a voice to those less often heard.

Their trip comes to an end of 24 July, whereafter they will share their stories.
