With schools starting tomorrow, a foundation in the capital that focuses on helping vulnerable children is asking for donations.

“Lidar is making a big difference in the lives of vulnerable members of the community, especially adolescent girls, young mothers and their babies,” says executive director Serley Khaxas.

They currently help seven boys and 13 girls in different schools and universities, who are in need of hygiene products and transport to and from school, as well as winter school uniforms like jerseys and trousers. “The majority of these children need to travel to Otjimbingwe when school re-opens, with the others going to Rehoboth and the two universities in Windhoek.”

The cost of sending a child to Otjimbingwe is N$300 and N$100 to send the scholars to Rehoboth. “Sponsors of toiletries and food would also be most welcome,” Khaxas says.

Lidar takes care of vulnerable girls, including some 60 pregnant teenagers. For vulnerable girls and young women, the centre is a chance at a better quality of life. Through education and guidance, the foundation strengthens them to take their future into their own hands and encourages them to accept responsibility.

If you would like to become involved and sponsor a child, Khaxas can be contacted at 081 687 15347 or send an email to [email protected]
