ThinkNamibia Environmental Awareness Campaign

Youth and young professionals in Namibia have identified a lack of funding for youth empowerment initiatives in the water, sanitation and environment sectors as one of the biggest challenges they face to contribute meaningfully to sustainable national development in these spheres. In response to this the Water Youth Namibia, held its second forum meeting on 17 November 2015 at NICE Restaurant in the capital with the theme "Youth opportunities for development, financing and empowerment in the water, sanitation and environment sectors". The ThinkNamibia Environmental Awareness Campaign team spoke to Faith Simataa from the Youth Water Namibia about the event and the work to date of the recently established group.
