The WIS learners “Make the World a better place” through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), visited the UN house. The group buzzed with excitement as they toured the building, stopping by each agency and finding out which SDG relates to which UN agency in Namibia.
After the tour, the group made their last stop in the library where Anthea Basson from the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Windhoek tested their understanding about the tour and provided more information about the United Nations and the SDGs. She expressed her gratitude to the young SDG advocates and their teacher for reaching out to UNIC Windhoek for teaching support on specific projects.
She encouraged them to continue their excellent work and learning process and most importantly to take action. Reminding them of their integral parts in working towards the achievement of the SDGs
The visit ended with a group photograph in front of the UN House. The Centre were impressed with the elevated level of awareness and understanding the group has shown throughout the sessions.
The UNIC staff have facilitated several learning sessions with the school which involved children of all ages in an enriching experience to take action and providing complimenting resources for our SDG educational outreach programmes in Namibia.
