‘SHARING IS THE HEART OF EDUCATION’
I would like to thank my EXCO Committee for a fruitful year, as I believe that the goals that we set for 2013 have been achieved!
The Regions / Chapters throughout the country and Namibia have forged ahead with the workshops and realised that it can be done. The response and feedback from the Workshop has only been positive. The momentum is continually growing, and being maintained throughout the country.
Many thanks to the Industry for the part they have played in making all the workshops successful.
