An Undiva(Me) in Ongwediva

Here's where I'll be based for the 2009 year.

Ongwediva is not found on most maps, so don't hurt yourself looking (like I did). It is a small town, in between the larger and more commonly detailed/referenced towns of Oshakati and Ondangwa, in the north-central region of Oshana.

A 2001 report by Family Health International noted that Ongwediva is an educational centre that is home to 11,649 learners in 14 schools (including one private school) and colleges. Among these establishments are a Teacher Training College, a Vocational Training Centre, as well as a School for the Disabled.

Throughout the year, I'll be working at the Ongwediva Teacher Resource Center supporting the promotion, teaching, and evaluation of Namibia's Plato Project, which aims to improve student and school performance in mathematics and science through the use of computers. There are four Teacher Resource Centers in the country.

I will share more details as they become available.
