MTC donates to Omuhonga Combined School’s hostel learners

Omuhonga Combined School’s hostel learners will benefit from a N$94 000 donation from MTC. This came after a request for support from the two schools reached MTC in March as the pupils slept on the floor. MTC stated that the donation is to be used to purchase 120 mattresses and pillows for each of the schools. MTC Corporate communications practitioner, Fikameni Mathias says it cannot be right that “we as a country have accepted that deplorable hostel states should be normal in rural areas” but expect competitive academic results nationally.
The Ojikoto school principal, Kavendji van der Merwe stated that his school mostly takes in children from marginalised communities and it is already difficult to keep these learners in school.
