Best Namibian Children


BNC = Best Namibian Children. That’s nice and creative but it is actually; BNC = Bernard Nordcamp Centre.


In 2005 MaryBeth Gallagher (you see her in blue in the door opening above) took over the lead at the Bernard Nordkamp Centre (BNC). Father Bernhard Nordkamp came to Namibia in 1986. He spent fifteen fifteen years of dedicated service to the children of Katutura; the settlement in north-eastern Windhoek.


Father Bernard passed away in 2009 and the centre today is a lasting symbol of his love and concern for under-privileged children. BIMGP6673

Today the prime focus of the BNC Namibia is to provide a balanced educational programme with emphasis on Mathematics and English, which supports and supplements the Namibian school curriculum.


This girl is writing a letter of gratitude to her sponsor. Sponsors support children with school uniforms, school equipment, clothes, toys, food and other things.


The children are proud to say that they are going to the BNC as it does not mean anymore to be poor and silly but in contrary to…


…be well educated, well behaved and to look forward to a future with lots of opportunities! BIMGP6685

The girls above used to go to BNC but are now too old. Still they come here because BNC is a safe place to be and a place where you can get a small meal.BIMGP6697
