Phoenix Project

Reducing poverty: promoting health

We are working in partnership with the University of Namibia to promote these higher goals. We are embedding quality education in focused projects, enabling better health and less poverty for people who desperately need a better life. Educating people to help themselves is the only way to ensure sustainable change.

A better, brighter future for all

Better health and less poverty is what both the United Nations and the Welsh Government want for the future. Cardiff University and University of Namibia are working for the peoples of both Namibia and Wales. Helping each other, we learn and grow together.
