Senior Manager of Corporate Communications and Public Relations, Oiva Angula, said: “This sponsorship is a re-affirmation of our commitment towards women empowerment. It is also a practical gesture of encouragement for the commendable work that the Namibia Businesswomen Projects have been doing for the past decade or so,” Angula said.
The annual sponsorship funds a wide range of projects, including the Katuka Mentorship Programme, Annual Namibian Businesswoman of the Year Award and bursaries for women in business-related fields.
Organiser of Namibian Business Projects Deséré Lundon-Muller expressed gratitude to Telecom Namibia for its continued support.
“The much appreciated assistance which the women of Namibia have received over the past decade has profoundly impacted on the emancipation of women in our country and is one of the most effective ways to create new generation entrepreneurs and professionals and to stimulate economic growth in our country,” Lundon-Muller said.
