Location of NCCV

The Organisation NCCV is based in the northern part of the Kunene Region, Namibia. The people of the region live in a challenging environment which has very little rain and access to nutritional, fresh food is limited.

How HIV & AIDS affects this region

The HIV/AIDS pandemic continues to decimate whole generations throughout the country leaving thousands of children to fend for themselves. Not only fend for themselves but often caring for sick parents and siblings. Child headed families are commonplace.

The number of orphans and vulnerable children is estimated at over 120,000 – this in a country with a population of less than 2 million.

Goals and aims of NCCV

NCCV works alongside Namibian people to endeavour to relieve some of the burden these children bear and hopefully give back to them some of the childhood they are missing. This will be done by (funding permitting) by:

  • The prevention or relief of poverty in particular among children in need in Katatura, Namibia
  • Assisting in the provision of education, training and health care projects
  • Set up and running of kindergarden with food programme

Long term aims of the project are towards independence skills for self sufficiency in adulthood. NCCV Children’s Centre will only be possible through donations, voluntary assistance and material support. If you are interested in giving your support please look at the following pages.
