Hanging out with SPES Charity at the Westair Aviation & FlyNamibia hangar in Windhoek
In the spirit of ubuntu FlyNamibia has hosted a group of preschoolers, associated with S.P.E.S. Charity, at Eros Airport.
As children are the future, the airline is dedicated to inspiring less fortunate youths and getting them excited about aviation. The children were taken on a tour of the hangar and FlyNamibia facilities.
For most of these kids it was the first time they saw aeroplanes of different sizes and even a helicopter from up close, and the excitement of the little ones was tangible.
The tour ended with a picnic at the Standard Bank Sky Lounge overlooking the arrival and departure of planes. The children were also given time to draw the aircraft they had seen during their tour. Their artwork will be used for special FlyNamibia merchandise in celebration of Namibia’s independence day.
S.P.E.S. Charity has been involved in the community for over 14 years with the support of international and local partners. It was established for the main purpose of serving less fortunate children and youth by helping them step out of poverty through encouragement, education and emotional support. The charity currently works with around 1700 children up to six years old and also provides support to about 80 teachers.
