WINDHOEK, 30 JUL (NAMPA) – Deputy Ministry of Environment and Tourism Tommy Nambahu has called on Namibians to preserve the environment for future generations.
Nambahu made the call in a statement he delivered during the handing over of N.dollars 30 000 by the Namibia Professional Hunters Association (NAPHA) to the Nau-Aib Primary School in Okahandja on Tuesday.
“We need to care for our wild animals,” he said.
The deputy minister said tourism plays a big role in the country's economy and aids in the eradication of poverty, thus everyone has to play their own role in tourism.
He also urged local companies to take their social responsibility seriously, saying they should invest in and preserve the safety of people, animals and tourists.
Meanwhile, at the same event, NAPHA's marketing sub-committee chairperson Jofie Lamprecht said the association believes that education is the most effective way to end the cycle of poverty in Namibia.
NAPHA supports education through ‘Hunter Support Education’, an initiative established 11 years ago with the aim of collecting funds to support schools and hostels in all regions of Namibia.
This was the second donation to the school, which last year received 100 mattresses.
Nau-Aib Primary School has 1 260 children and it was opened in 1988.
