The Center is located on a half-acre plot in the slums of Otjiomuise, a township situated on the farthest outskirts of the capital city of Windhoek.
The plot of land, owned by Mammadu Trust, is fully fenced.
The buildings of the Center were designed to get optimum exposure: cool in the summer and maximum sun in the winter.
Whenever possible we use recycled materials: plastic bottles for the greenhouse, glass shards for decoration, old tires for the playgrounds and the embankments.
We are in the planning stage to implement an electrical power supply system with solar panels and an irrigation system using earthenware jars.
THE EXPANSION PROJECT: THE BAKERY
In 2015 we built a new building which will be used as a bakery to create useful on the job training opportunities for youngsters and other members of the community.
In addition the bakery will supply the Center itself as well as the nearby community with freshly baked cheap bread. The bakery has been partly subsidized by the German Embassy in Windhoek and by private funds.
