The German Embassy Windhoek is supporting the Namibian Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT) with N $ 218,314.81 (€ 13,985.57) for the extension to the textile training section in Arandis in the Erongo region.

NIMT was originally founded as a training center for mining professions but has subsequently expanded to offer 12 different training courses such as mechanics, welders, bricklayers, plasterers and professions in the textile industry. Enlarge image

After the extension of the textile training center, NIMT will accommodate more trainees, thus offering young Namibians placements for apprenticeships. As skilled workers, the young people are then equipped to also start their own business.

Ullrich Kinne, Chargé d'Affaires of the German Embassy Windhoek, as well as Eckhart Mueller and Mark Templin as representatives of NIMT, signed the contract for the financial support of the project in September.
