Lebensschule, (translates to School of Life) was founded by retired nurse Kathy Hampe, born in Rehoboth and currently resides in Windhoek, Namibia. Children with disabilities are frowned upon and it is considered a curse in the culture. While working with families during her nursing career, Kathy came across many disabled children in the homes she visited. She decided that something needed to be done to include these children in the community. She founded Lebensschule to try to provide an opportunity for the children to gain an education and also provide much needed physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Kathy is always there to offer emotional support to both the children and their families.

Multiple Sclerosis Association of Namibia
Multiple Sclerosis Association of Namibia to show its supportAccording to the founder of the organization, Bianca Özcan, too few people know about the disease in Namibia. This is mainly due to the fact that one looks healthy, even if one is suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS) and therefore the disease is not taken seriously. “We want to create awareness for MS so that all can recognize and treat the symptoms at an early stage,” explains Özcan, who was diagnosed with MS even at 22 years of age.Multiple Sclerosis also known as MS is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system, i.e. the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. In severe cases the patient becomes paralyzed and/or blind, while in milder cases there may be numbness in the limbs.
