With that in mind, Namibia has partnered with MTC to set up the MTC rural schools project, but before such project can been seen or actualize then funds are seriously needed.

According to the Nation’s Education Minister, Anna Nghipondoka, they require at least N$1.8 billion to construct over 5 000 classrooms countrywide, in order to address critical gaps in basic education.

The newly launched project will allow MTC to partner with rural schools, with the objective of either building new classrooms or renovating existing structures, to ensure learning takes place in a conducive environment with MTC plans to donated eight classrooms worth N$1.6 million.

The company plans to construct four classrooms at each school. MTC intends to finalise the project by the end of September 2020 and help more schools that are in need in 2021.

MTC CEO Licky Erastus said the company would immediately construct classrooms at Sinzogoro Combined School outside Rundu in the Kavango West region as well as Okondaune Primary School situated outside Opuwo in Kunene.
