Soup and supplies for Mandume Kindergarten

The Maltas Club and Dinapama Manufacturing & Supplies recently hosted a soup kitchen for the children of the Mandume Kindergarten in Okahandja Park.

07 July 2019 | Education

Since the Maltas club’s inception nine years ago, students from various universities in Namibia have carried out numerous charitable projects across the country and abroad.

Two years ago, Maltas and Dinapama launched this project through which they donate food and learning material to the Mandume Kindergarten. The purpose is threefold: To give love and care to the children; to create a sense of community; and to ensure that a contribution is made to a Namibian child, be it psychological or emotional.

All this adds to the core vision and mission of Maltas, which is to uplift and touch the lives of Namibians from all walks of life, even in the smallest way.

Passion and dedication

As a final year student studying towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education, the founder of Maltas, Dr Wilfred Isak April, said that education is not only about reading books and studying; it is about passion, dedication and the drive one puts in when you wish to impact lives without expecting anything in return.

For Hafeni Peter, the current Project Manager of Maltas, helping the Mandume Kindergarten has been a pleasure. Peter, a Political Science student at UNAM, says he will continue to be part of charitable causes after his tenure in Maltas.

Now that the Soup Kitchen Project for 2019 has come to an end, the club wishes to express its sincere appreciation and thanks to all individuals, Dinapama and Maltas Alumni for making the day a huge success.

With the year half way through, the next few months are very busy for Maltas members. Their work in the coming months includes an outreach to Tsumkwe in collaboration with FNB at the end of July, followed by a school painting and sanitary towel campaign in the north. Thereafter, the annual leadership week takes place in Stellenbosch followed by a study weekend in Etosha, and finally their annual working holiday to the USA and Barbados early in 2020.
