Godparent program

The Omaruru Children’s Haven runs a program in which you have the opportunity to sponsor one of our children or young adults. Godparents support their godchild with 30 Euros per month and maintain regular contact with them. The financial contributions are used for the child’s daily expenses. Among other things hygiene articles, school materials and fees, clothing, birthday parties, excursions and doctor’s visits can be financed. In return, the godparents receive small insights in the life and upbringing of their godchild at a regular basis, beside to self-painted pictures and letters.

We would be happy if the sponsorship is more than just a financial commitment. Our children often ask about their godparents and are happy about every letter they receive from them. In order to guarantee this personal relationship, no more than two sponsorships can be taken upon one child. It is therefore possible, that no children are available for sponsorships at the time of your application. If you want to support Omaruru Children’s Haven on a long-term basis, then maybe a material sponsorship would be the right thing for you.

Our sponsorships program runs in cooperation with the Rotary Club Bad Segeberg.

Material sponsorships

The Omaruru Children’s Haven is largely financed by donations, for which we are each very grateful. Every donation means that a person is actively involved in giving our children more opportunities and a better perspective towards the future on the path to self-determined and responsible adulthood. Maybe we can inspire you to take upon a material sponsorship if you would like to permanently support the Omaruru Children’s Haven.

For example:

  • With 10 Euros per month you can allow a child to attend kindergarten
  • With 20 Euros per month you can make a doctor’s visit with a private doctor for one of our children possible
  • With 30 Euros per month you allow us to operate our greenhouse
  • With 50 Euros per month you can allow us to buy fresh fruits as a healthy snack

Of course, you can always donate any other amount towards the Omaruru Children’s Haven. We would be happy to tell you what can be and is made possible for our children with your contributions.

Feel free to contact us.

Occasions for Donation

Happiness doubles when you share it.

There are many moments in life that we like to share with people around us. A round birthday, a wedding, a childbirth and an anniversary, events at which we get together with our families, friends and acquaintances to celebrate together. Take the opportunity to share your joy with others – ask your guests for a donation and support for one of our projects.

Give hope

There are also sad moments in life, like the loss of a loved one. Nothing and no one can make it more bearable, however sometimes at least the farewell can be more comforting if you combine it with something hopeful. Flower wreaths are ephemeral, but a donation can create many opportunities.

Volunteer Service

During a one year voluntary service in Namibia, you can become a part of our work. You will live at Haven and you will become a part of the whole – 24 hours, seven days a week. You will be a contact person, colleague and friend.

Our volunteers form a team with our permanent staff and are primarily responsible for study time, as well as the children’s leisure activities. They also support the housemothers and the management.
