Mathilde, civic service from December 07, 2021 to June 2, 2022

« This mission within Peri Naua taught me a lot in several areas. First of all, education. Thanks to homework help, I was able to observe the evolution of each student, see their confidence increase, the admiration of white fade to give way to an equitable human relationship. These exchanges were a real pleasure and I learned about the thirst for discovery, the curiosity of children and teenagers. Then that of creativity by offering artistic activities as part of the establishment of a cultural center. I acquired skills in pedagogy but also in the implementation of workshops, especially radio.

This new experience allowed me to refine my choice of orientation towards a work that combines culture and social. These 6 months within the association, made me grow and learn a lot about humanity, brotherly love, my personal and professional priorities. What a rewarding experience to see these students create so independently and flourish in a common project!

This civic service opens wide the heart and mind, each child is full of richness and beauty. Also, I thank Erica and Alina for everything they taught me indirectly. Their courage, poetry and cheerfulness gave me a lot. Their families as well. Thank you to the whole team for welcoming me.«

    Lily, eight months top-chrono for the opening of the cultural center (Civic Service, September 2021 – May 2022)

    « At Peri Naua, part of my mission took place at the library, with local employees: help with homework, reading, manual activities, sports and cultural…

    It was an opportunity to share pedagogical knowledge from our different cultures. The rest of the time, I participated in the establishment of a cultural center for teenagers in the neighborhood: course programming, communication, creation of projects. The exchange with the beneficiaries helped us to better understand their reality, their expectations and the constraints related to the socio-economic environment, and thus allowed us to adapt our activities. Because a new project involves successes as well as failures. Learning to question yourself, modifying your initial ideas to overcome them is essential. Anyway, these eight months were a succession of emotions, between satisfactions and disappointments.

    Finally, I would retain the richness of the human experience of this stay in Namibia. Every moment of sharing with children, teenagers and stakeholders was a source of joy. Taking a step back from Western society by discovering different ways of relating to the world and cultures was for me a way to form opinions and a line of action related to this new knowledge. »

      Current projects in Namibia

      Since the closing of the school in 2020, Peri Naua has been working on the creation of a cultural center in its premises in order to offer innovative activities to the neighborhood’s teenagers.  The cultural center of Peri Naua welcomes for free a slightly older public than the one that mostly attends the library on Saturday morning. The two structures are thus complementary. 

      The activities offered are defined in consultation with the local community and the available contributors: dance, plastic arts, film club, music, organization of events….

        Planting of trees at Orwetoveni school

        At the end of its performances, the theater company Dilemme sur planche of the Swiss commune Troistorrents wished to support an action, an association. Through one of its members who loves Namibia and is in contact with the school of Peri Naua, Dilemme sur planche gave a check to the association.

        It was decided that part of the money would be used to plant trees in the schoolyard to provide shade for the students during outdoor activities. In October 2010, two members of the troupe accompanied by a friend went to the school for a morning to plant the trees

          To build a pedagogical and cultural project around the story mats and to create language situations that allow the children to practice the English language… this was Annick’s objective during her stay at Otjiwarongo school from May 20th to June 14th 2011.

          The story mat is made of fabric, colorful, beautiful to look at, soft to touch and to handle. The three teachers Gisela, Anneliene and Sofia quickly wanted to use them themselves
