SIAMA Children Namibia (SCN) is a Dutch foundation dedicated to the underprivileged children in Namibia. Namibia is a poor country with big problems. AIDS rates increase by the day and are so frightening that the next two generations have major problems. Unemployment is around 40%, leaving many families have little or nothing to eat. For many disadvantaged children of Namibia a very rosy picture of the future. To make a difference in the lives of some of these children have four Dutch friends bought a piece of land with an old farmhouse in 2003 in Omaruru, a village 240 km northwest of the capital Windhoek.
In recent years, SCN is used to restore the farm and to register the children. On January 11, 2006 we open our doors for the first six children. We catch these children (now 15), providing them with shelter, food, clothing and pay for a large number of these children’s school fees. By opening an orphanage, these children are educated, they will grow up in a loving environment and they get to eat healthy. For these children this means a chance for a better future.
Our children focuses specifically on the care of underprivileged children, who attend school in Omaruru and do not live at home.
