Education and character building are two of the most important tools for breaking the cycle of poverty.
In the townships of Namibia, it is the mission of Beautiful Kidz is to provide care and support to children through education and by meeting their physical and psychological needs. Beautiful Kidz is an international, interdenominational Christian organisation and is registered in Namibia as a Welfare Organisation (WO 203).
At present we run three community centres in which 280 orphans and vulnerable children receive education and afterschool care for free. These centres are in Katutura (Windhoek) and in Ovitoto (East of Okahandja). The unemployment rate in these communities is extremely high, drug and alcohol abuse are rife and many children are hungry, neglected and affected by the AIDS pandemic.
When children, with the help of these programmes, start making the right choices for their lives, they can eventually make a positive difference in the Namibian society.
