The partnership with LearnOnOne will supplement the Foundation's support to education, a primary focus area of the Capricorn Foundation.  


LearnOnOne is an innovative educational initiative that strives to close the digital gap by offering supplementary education through broadcast television.

This collaboration extends the reach of television as a medium to make quality education accessible to every child in Namibia. The initiative offers secondary school materials and AS levels, as well as ECD and primary school lessons, to be aired on One Africa Television and made available on the LearnOnOne website. ​

The reach of LearnOnOne through television, videos, streaming, and social media has reached 5902791 viewers for the period January – March 2024.


Marlize Horn, the Executive Officer of Capricorn Foundation, highlighted the significance of education as a long-term investment. "As a responsible corporate citizen and a Connector of Positive Change, the Capricorn Foundation remains committed to investing in education. We believe collaboration is a defining concept for creating impact within communities, and the LearnOnOne initiative can push education in Namibia future-forward".

"This generous sponsorship from the Capricorn Foundation is a game-changer. It allows us to continue breaking down barriers, equipping Namibian learners with the essential knowledge and skills to thrive," said Stephan Hugo, Co-Founder of LearnOnOne.


According to the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture's Fifteenth School Day Report for 2023, there are 864,707 school learners in Namibia, including both boys and girls from all regions and grades.
