Beautiful Kidz NamibiaThe Capricorn Foundation is proud to announce its partnership with Beautiful Kidz Namibia. The Foundation has committed N$120,000.00 to support the Beautiful Kidz Anusa Project to uplift underprivileged children by donating high-quality school uniforms to 350 disadvantaged children attending public schools in Windhoek and supporting the women who manufacture the uniforms to earn an income.  


Beautiful Kidz Namibia is a non-profit organisation that operates various programmes to provide care and support to underprivileged children and their families in Windhoek and the Ovitoto rural area. One of the significant challenges these children face is the lack of proper school uniforms, which affects their self-esteem, attendance, academic performance, and overall well-being.


"We are pleased to continue the work that our subsidiary, Capricorn Asset Management, supported from 2018 to 2023, as it aligns with our vision to address the basic needs of vulnerable groups, focusing on children and education. As a Connector of Positive Change, the Capricorn Foundation is proud to be part of this initiative to provide a brighter future for vulnerable Namibian children, restore their confidence and bring a smile to their beautiful faces whilst also creating job opportunities for the women of the Anusa Project," said Marlize Horn, Executive Officer of the Capricorn Foundation.


Capricorn Asset Management (CAM), a Capricorn Group member and a Capricorn Foundation funder, has supported the Anusa Project from 2018 to 2023 by donating 2811 school uniforms. Continuing its unwavering commitment, the Capricorn Foundation generously donated 200 summer uniforms for boys and girls, along with 150 winter tracksuits, to benefit the following schools:

  • Bet-el Primary School
  • Auas Primary School
  • Dr Frans Aupa Indongo Primary School
  • Fidel Castro Cruz Primary School
  • Otjomuise Primary School
  • Khomasdal Primary School
  • Dr Abraham Ijambo Primary School
  • St. Barnabas Primary School
  • Martti Ahtisaari Primary School
  • St. Andrews Primary School
  • Namibia Primary School
  • Mandume Primary School
  • A.I. Steenkamp Primary School

The Capricorn Foundation's generous contribution ensures the provision of essential school uniforms and sustains the Anusa Project's vital operations, enabling employment opportunities and support for the local women involved.
