Former Miss Namibia Hands Over Hydroponics Projects to Cafo

Innonation Foundation, with the sponsorship of Agribank of Namibia, has handed over the first hydroponics urban farming unit to the Church Alliance for Orphans (CAFO), which supports the Bernhard Nordkamp Centre.

Miss Namibia 2018 and Innovation Foundation founder Selma Kamanya says the foundation operates under mental health, women’s economic enablement, youth empowerment through arts advocacy and technological innovation, as well as agriculture pillars.

With support from the Agribank of Namibia, Inno-Grows is set on enabling selected community centers, which rely on community feeding schemes, to become self-sufficient producers of their own food.

“This event carries significance in our quest to address the threats that have loomed over our food security and community feeding schemes, especially during the challenging times of the Covid-19 pandemic. Amid the chaos of the pandemic, our nation faced a daunting reality. At that time, our food systems and feeding infrastructure were greatly threatened,” she says.

Kamanya says on her journey as a volunteer over the past five years, one organization at Goreangab left a permanent impression on her heart.
