RUNDU, 10 JUL (NAMPA) - The Northern Regional Electricity Distributor (Nored) on Wednesday donated electrical equipment to the Rundu Vocational Training Centre (RVTC) to be used by its trainees.
The equipment includes 29 transformers, street light fittings, and prepaid meters amongst others.
Receiving the donation, RVTCs centre Manager, Kornelius Lukas said the donation shows Noreds full understanding on the training institutions needs, adding the nations aspired industrialisation can only be realised through the involvement of industries in the technical vocational education and training.
Nored's Executive Manager for Corporate Affairs, Toivo Shovaleka, in his remarks during the handover gave assurance of their support to RVTC, noting that when they received RVTCs request for equipment, they could not hesitate but to assist.
When we received your request for this equipment, we did not hesitate at all. We accepted to deliver because as Nored, we have already pronounced ourselves and it's no secret that we are a friend of education, he said.
According to him, the company has already demonstrated through various interventions, particularly its sponsorships to schools towards good performance and to the upliftment of education, while encouraging those that have not performed well to do so.
We are very proud to be associated with an institution like RVTC. In fact, we are a technical company in electricity distribution and for us to have electricians, there is nowhere we can get them if not through your institution and others.
We will shoot ourselves in the legs if we turn a blind eye in supporting your cause and we realise that government alone is not be able to achieve its objectives and we also know that education and training is a shared responsibility, stressed Shovaleka.
Nored and RVTC signed a memorandum of understanding in July 2015 for a comprehensive partnership through which over 100 electrical trainees have undergone internship.
