Poverty eradication needs multi-faceted approach – Geingob

New Era, July 13, 2015

Combating GBVPresident Hage Geingob last week said the war the government has declared against poverty must include a multi-faceted approach from all sectors of society. “We have a new ministry and we have a new approach. We will soon invite all social organisations to a dialogue so that we can all come together to help [work on] a national roadmap on the way forward,” Geingob told a delegation from the Ecumenical Social Diaconate Action (ESDA) group.

Speaking after the presentation of a roadmap by the ESDA to complement national initiatives, Geingob said he was impressed by what the organisation stood for. ESDA operates as a welfare organisation under the wings of Friendly Haven, which operates as a shelter where battered women and children seek a place of safety from all sorts of abuse. The organisation was established in 1995 by Reverend Ngeno Nakamela in response to many women and children being abused and battered. A steady stream of women and children have passed through the shelter’s doors seeking protection from abuse especially domestic violence and rape. From 2002 to 2014, an astonishing 1 750 people were taken in of whom 980 were children and 770 women.

The centre is supported by six government ministeries as well as international and local donors. Click here to read more....
