Our work

Our work is focused on building capacity in Africa through collaboration with the University of Namibia.

Our partnership with the University of Namibia enables us to provide opportunities for shared learning and development across as many of our departments as possible.

This is achieved though training, sharing educational resources, supporting staff, making student exchanges and providing information technology support.
