ONGWEDIVA, 11 AUG (NAMPA) – The Marketing Manager of the Namibia Economist newspaper, Desere Lundon-Muller says all funds generated by the Economist Businesswomen’s Club’s central and northern conferences go towards the Economist Businesswomen Bursary Fund.
Lundon-Muller said this whilst speaking during the 14th Northern Economist Businesswomen Conference held at Ongwediva in the Oshana Region last Thursday.
She pointed out that the said fund finances female students in business-related fields at any institution in Namibia.
Lundon-Muller noted that two bursaries have been awarded already to Imelda Mokhatu and Shareen Tjirera, who have already completed their studies.
The Economist Businesswomen’s Club also organises the Namibian Businesswoman of the Year Award.
She named Anita Devenish, Maria Shivute and Amalia Schmidt as former Businesswomen of the Year from northern Namibia.
The Marketing Manager of the Namibia Economist urged Namibian businesswomen to support the Economist Businesswomen’s Club for it to succeed for the benefit of all its members.
With more than 100 enlisted members, Lundon-Muller said, the club constitutes the single biggest concentration of the country’s career women who possess a vast wealth in terms of business experience.
The club was founded some 16 years ago as a non-profit organisation aimed at encouraging personal development and management skills of its members, and to advance the standing and power of women.
A number of businesswomen from all over northern Namibia attended the conference.
