Some of our projects.


Kyrstin Scharninghausen Memorial Library

Opened in August of 1999, the library built by the Salamatu Foundation has sponsored and run educational workshops and been open to the students and community in Oupumako, Namibia.


School Based Teacher Training Institute

In 2011, the Salamatu Foundation launched a School Based Teacher Training Institute for elementary schools in Namibia. This project provided teachers with information about literacy strategies and how to use the Storybook Resource Library. This portable library has storybooks for the teachers to use in their classrooms. The library was donated to the school by the foundation. This project was spearheaded by our President, Andrew Ayers. Andrew is a learning specialist who lives and works in New York City.

Literacy & HIV/AIDS Workshops

The Salamatu Foundation spent four years delivering an HIV/AIDS Education and Literacy Institute targeting Namibian teachers in schools in Northern Namibia. In June 2007, we ran a training at Ongwediva Teachers’ College. We collaborated with RACE: the Regional AIDS Committee in Education from the Ministry of Basic Education to run a 3-day training for Namibian teachers. It focused on using literacy strategies to teach about HIV/AIDS.
