Fish consumption trust supports Kalkveld children’s home

The Namibia Fish Consumption Promotion Trust has committed to support the Ngatuvevatere Children’s Home at Kalkveld over the next three years.

As part of its first-year commitment, the trust is donating towards infrastructural development at the home, including electrical works for both the boys and girls’ quarters, valued at N$107 600.

The organisation will also provide the home with 360kg of horse mackerel per year and donate used furniture items.

Over the next two years, the trust has committed to provide at least N$100 000 per year towards further renovations.

“Our gesture aims to promote fish consumption, address hunger and nutritional security, and ensure fish accessibility to all Namibians, particularly the orphans and vulnerable children at the home,” noted the trust’s board chairperson, Suzan Ndjaleka.

The donation is part of its larger corporate social investment programme, which is dedicated to addressing socio-economic challenges and enhancing the trust’s corporate reputation.

Since 2012, the trust has raised funds annually during the National Fish Consumption Day gala dinner, which have been invested in basic education initiatives across the country.

The commitment to support the home is aligned with its mission to promote fish consumption and accessibility nationwide.

“We have established regional fish sale promotions, reaching communities without access to our permanent fish shops, including hard-to-reach areas,” said Ndjaleka.
