TOV Orphans and Vulnerable Children Organisation
Tov is a Community Based Organisation in Tsumeb, Namibia, which is providing physical, emotional and educational support to school-age children who are orphaned or in other ways vulnerable as a direct result of the effect of HIV/AIDS on themselves and their families. TOV comes from the Hebrew word and means good or delightful. The name was chosen by the centre's manager, Rev. Edward Amadhila, who set up the organization in 2001.
TOV started on 16 January 2001 with our preschool with 3 children. Today over 230 children have graduated from our Preschool. The kids who started with TOV in 2001 are now in grade 7.
Over 2555 meals were served over the last years to Orphans and Vulnerable children in our community. We are also proud to say that we managed to keep 80% of our children in our programs throughout the years. Some of these children have finished their schools and making an impact in our community.
TOV over the years received recognition and have been invited to international conferences like the ones in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Canada. TOV is really in a class of its own and we are proud that we have given ourselves to our people.
We also want to acknowledge receiving help from many friends and donors over the years. Some have sent volunteers to serve in our community and organization. Emory University (USA), Eron University (USA), Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) and many others have visited TOV and help out in many ways.
