Plan 2122
Plan 2122 is the framework that will help us steer and stay on course for the realization of our vision and implementation of our mission as Otjiwana Economic Foundation and all that we stand for. It is the framed picture of our perceived future, thus as we build towards the completion of that picture, we will build piece by piece as a parcel until the picture is complete. To simplify the end goal in digestible bits, all developmental activities will be geared towards these 3 three strategic themes - areas of action - strategic aims and 12 twelve strategic objectives.

Otjiwana Education project

We recognise that we are all affected by the educational outcomes of our community and thus would like to become a learning community. A community of lifelong learners that recognises the inter-generational and multi-disciplinary approach to skills building and innovation. Education is the one sector that has potential to build good and safe communities and to create wealthy communities.

Otjiwana Media - Imwe vazewa nayo, yarwe isa ku mbwae woye…

Otjiwaṋa Media creates and communicate superior content with the aim to improve access to current and world class information content that can inspire our community to take informed action. We recognise that for the most part people have access but it is the type and quality of information that is of concern. Therefore, we develop media as a catalyst in ending information poverty.
