HISTORY: Africa in is a crisis that is claiming millions of lives due to HIV/AIDS. Many children are left homeless and destitute. In Namibia, with a population of 1.8 million there are over 20,000 orphans. By 2010 there will be 80,000.

Katutura is one of the black townships created by Apartheid before Namibia's independence in 1990. Located on the outskirts of the capital of Windhoek Katutura continues to be undeveloped and poverty stricken. Unemployment, crime, illiteracy, and disease are continuing factors.

Youth With A Mission (YWAM) surveyed many neighborhoods of Katutura during its research of the area. After visiting many homes to seek out the most needy areas the old Damara-Nama location was targeted. In a five-block area 1000 children were found to be in need. 510 of these were orphans and vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS. The defining factors of the OVC's were: alcohol and drugs in the home, sickness, disabled children, and extreme poverty with several people living on one income in over crowded housing.

After a year and a half of investing in the impoverished neighborhood of Katutura, Youth With A Mission has made a major impact on the lives of the children and the families of this neighborhood. The day care centre run by YWAM is playing a vital role in enhancing the development potential of pre-school aged children.

COMMUNITY HOPE SCHOOL: In January 2005, Teachers for Africa is establishing Community Hope School, a Christian school created for the school age children of YWAM's ministry and other OVCs in Katutura. Sixteen students will be in the first Kindergarten class. Each year another grade will be added until the school is K-6. The daily spiritual, academic and nutritional needs of these children will be met. This year the Kindergarten class will meet in YWAM's preschool facility and in 2006 the school will need to purchase or rent another facility.

John and Suzanne Hunter are heading up the project. Three well-trained Namibians will be the principal, teacher and support staff.

Training classes will be offered to staff that need Namibian teacher certification.
