School Governance Project (SGP) is a project being implemented by the Namibia Development Trust (NDT). This project intends to respond to the low level of education outcomes in the northern region of Namibia by improving school governance through active involvement and participation of school boards, principals, parents, communities and other civic bodies in selected local communities. NDT will implement activities to raise the awareness on the role of parents, communities and school boards in education management and governance and build their capacity to carry out this role. The project will also capacitate school boards, parent, communities, and members of school committees, learners and youth representative structures to actively monitor education delivery and engage educational authorities towards achieving quality education. NDT will also work with parents and communities on the needs of girls and marginalized and disadvantaged children so that their issues become part and parcel of the school management and governance programmes.
Namibia Development Trust (NDT) is a Non-Governmental Organisation founded in 1987 by different civil society organisations to channel aid from European Commission to “victims of apartheid”. It later transformed itself in playing an active role in Community Development. As an NGO, NDT works with historically marginalised rural and urban communities to build their power to act for social change, through capacity building initiatives. NDT aims to develop organisational and institutional capacities of rural and urban marginalised communities through people centred development within an enabling environment that aims to ensure improved livelihoods and empower communities to act for socio economic justice and social change.
