Namibia - UN-AMICAALL NAMIBIA, OPEC, ORT South Africa & USAID - 2003-2009

Following several consecutive missions in 2003, and 2004 to Namibia by the ORT IC representative in South Africa, the ORT - UN/AMICAALL (Alliance of Mayors and Municipal Leaders Initiative for Community Action on HIV/AIDS at Local Level) partnership was established.

The partnership addresses ways that orphaned children, almost 50,000, can be empowered as active participants rather than victims. The project focuses on vocational training, linked with on the job skills training via partnerships with small and medium sized enterprises in a number of cities and towns.

The applications for funding were sent to OPEC, which has granted ORT $ 250,000. The project began September 2004. and ORT South Africa has been granted further funds for a four-year extension, from September 2005 - August 2009.
