About this project

Founded in 2004, the “DRC School Project & Community Centre” is located on sandy soil of the Namib Desert in the area of the Democratic Resettlement Community (DRC), a “township” of Swakopmund in Namibia and is one of the few places in the “township” that has running water, connected sanitary facilities and electricity. In the hope of finding work, many people from the north of Namibia move to the coast, which has led to the formation of poor suburbs in recent years. For example, many of the people living there have no or only irregular work and are forced to live under unfavourable conditions in the “township” of DRC. In DRC, more than 40,000 residents live in corrugated iron huts, without electricity and running water. It is an informal settlement that is only tolerated by the city.

The school project is operated officially by Tangeni Shilongo Namibia. That means, we are always in need of material and financial donations and, despite the little money available, the school project takes children and young adults off the streets and enriches their lives with a lot of fun. We have created a wide range of educational opportunities for this purpose.
