The association is led by chairman Frank Pochert, a friend of Maison Marsil who was a guest this evening.

Pro Namibian Children e.V. is committed mainly to the Omomas Care Center, a home to more than 90 children who visit the connected state St. Patrick's Primary School. "We promote the independence of children and prepare them for life's daily demands and challenges. In addition to a school education, we support these children in improving their personal, social and technical skills so that they can make the most of life's opportunities." says the association. "To finance the running costs, we depend on every donation and are very grateful for any financial support. In 2018, we hope to expand the pilot project "Garden". Donations in the form of clothing or, at the moment, of English-language books for the library are very welcome."
