Ohorongo Cement through its social investment arm Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust (OOCT), donated a further 36 tons of cement, towards the completion of the Etunda Farm Primary School’s hostel on Tuesday (11 July 2017).

The hostel and school which will accommodate about 200 leaners is expected to open its door to the children residing in the rural areas of the Otjozondjupa region in 2018.

“The donation and the delivery of the cement are to honor our pledge made by our Managing Director, Mr Hans-Wilhelm Schütte, during the opening of the Etunda Clinic in May this year. We are aware of the huge infrastructure challenges that our education sector is facing. This donation is aimed at ensuring that the children in the rural areas of Otjozondjupa region are able to access education without limitation,” said Esther Mbathera the Public Relations and Corporate Communication Manager at Ohorongo Cement, who handed over the donation.

Mbathera added that the donation is to further enhance government’s agenda for quality and access to education.
