Debmarine Namibia recently handed over sports equipment to schools from the three winning regions of 2022 Bridging the Gap Initiative, which Debmarine hosted in October this year in Swakopmund in collaboration with the Namibia Schools Sport Union.
The three regions that benefitted from the donation are Erongo, Khomas and Otjozondjupa.
The donated equipment is worth N$720 000 and will go to 53 schools from the three regions. Debmarine senior communications officer Anna IIkela explained that each of the 53 schools received equipment worth about N$10 000.
She said schools or regions that did not manage to attend the recent handover ceremony will have their donated equipment transported to their respective schools at the beginning of next year.
Etienne Lombaard from Windhoek High School said he appreciates the sponsorship by Debmarine, as it will help boost sports activities at the school.
