The local bunkering company, Monjasa Namibia donated N$200,000 to the Promiseland Trust to support its early child development initiatives, last Friday. Speaking at the handover, the General Manager of Monjasa Namibia, Sean Holmes said, “since the establishment of the company in 2014, its been our vision to share our successes with the community. We were so committed to this goal that we included a trust as a shareholder in the business. Over time we have been allocating profits from our business ventures to this trust and we are proud to announce that we are now able to contribute in this small way towards the efforts of organisations that uplift the community and bring about positive change.”
Accepting the donation, Jessica Mostert a trustee of the Promisland trust, expressed her gratitude for the donation adding that, “it would allow the trust to expand and maintain the impact it has on early child development and school readiness for especially vulnerable children in marginalized communities.”
Mostert noted that the Promiseland Trust has been able to run three different projects including the early child development programme based on the Montessori educational system, a foster care house and a feeding scheme where some 300 underprivileged children are fed daily and a further 2,000 are given a meal at school. “This would not have been possible without the generosity of our sponsors, partners and the selfless efforts of our community volunteers,” said Mostert. “It is not only the economy that is suffering from the recession, but also charity organisations receive less support. So this generous donation is heaven-sent.”
Holmes also pledged to support the Promiseland Trust activities for three years. “It is Monjasa Namibia’s commitment to support the trust for three years up to 2021. All that remains is to thank the organisations for their commitment to uplift their communities, and we are proud to be associated with you and look forward to our continued partnership.”
