• Creabuntu

Elke Reinauer is not only an excellent actress and a dedicated writer

She is also the founder of the association “Creabuntu” based in Namibia. Elke contacted us in 2017 and told us that she is looking for a platform in Germany to collect donations. We were thrilled about her plans to provide to the children and young people the opportunity to develop self-confidence, creativity, integrity, discipline, empathy and courage through art and theatre, aiming to forge adults with strong personality, changemakers. Creabuntu takes place as an afternoon offer in the suburb of the township Katutura in Windhoek. We didn’t hesitate for a second to give her the support she needed and make her part of our family.

Create and Ubuntu: I am because you are.

Creabuntu wants to create a place in Katutura where children and young people have the opportunity to look beyond their own horizons and discover completely new possibilities – in themselves and in others. This aspect is also reflected in the project name: “Create” means creation and design. And there is great power in this process.

“I am because you are” is the South African life concept “Ubuntu. ” The idea behind this concept of life is at the heart of the project. It is about becoming stronger through community. The aim of “Creabuntu” is to offer an art school as an afternoon program in Katutura. In this afternoon’s programme, the following activities will be offered: acting lessons, music lessons, homework supervision, lunch.

Support from the German Embassy in Windhoek

The German Embassy in the capital of Namibia supports families in need in the informal settlement Katutura in Windhoek as part of the emergency aid to cope with the effects of COVID-19. A total amount of N$ 52.453 (2.552 €) from the Embassy’s micro project fund was made available for Creabuntu to purchase food packages for distribution to the community.

The parcels are filled with basic food and were distributed by Creabuntu to families in need. Ellen Gölz from the German embassy visited the community center in Katutura in September 2020, where she was greeted by Samuel Kapepo and Monica Nambelela, members of Creabuntu.
