What we do
WAD is involved in Socio-economic and Socio-political programs since its inception in 1994. With this approach, the Organisation has managed to reach more than 50 000 people who have subsequently become members of WAD in carrying forward the drastic efforts to reach less privileged women, young people and the poorest of the poor across the 13 regions of Namibia.
To compliment this effort, WAD established 7 Training Centres across the country of which 4 of them got decentralised leaving only three centres under the supervision of WAD head office although they are operating more independently.
These 3 training centres include; Omusati Training Centre in the Northern part of the Country, Hardap Training Centre and Karas Training Centre both in the southern part of the Country. These centres are well equipped to run socio-economic activities and thereby generation their own resources to be-self sustainable.
