Quarterly Update 2014

Interns

Omba offers internship opportunities for our partner groups and organisations. This year we have had 7 women from Zambezi, Omaheke, Ohangwena and Oshikoto regions spend from a few days to two weeks working with Omba staff, thanks to funding from the Finnish Embassy and MCA. This has been an excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth and cementing friendships and partnerships.

WFTO

Omba welcomed Bernard Outah and Ines Jensen from the WFTO Africa office based in Nairobi. This was the first time we have been visited by WFTO and it was great to meet such an enthusiastic and dynamic duo and for staff to hear more about the fair trade movement and the new Guarantee System that is being implemented. Omba is the only WFTO member in Namibia and their visit included a recruiting drive.

Updated Website

We have updated our website and improved our Product Page – we hope it is a useful tool to find our more out our products and our work.

Off to Market

The last quarter we have all been very busy preparing for three markets in the USA in June and July. This year two women from Zambezi and Kavango region will be joining us at the markets as part of a marketing exposure experience, funded by MCA. As you can imagine, there has been great excitement as for Petra Muloko and Kornelia Sikindo, this will be their first visit to the USA, and first time on an airplane! Personal growth needs to come before professional growth and we are happy to be able to provide this opportunity.
