Otjikondo: Another Step on the Journey tells 24 success stories of former students, whose choice of profession or studies were influenced, to a large extent, by their Otjikondo experience. "For the poorest of the poor", this principle influenced the life of the founder of Otjikondo, Reiner Stommel. When in 1991, the opportunity arose to start a school on their farm in North West Namibia, he and bis wife Gillian immediately grasped it. Otjikondo should give children living in villages and on farms in deprived regions in the North West of Namibia a chance in life. 25 years later, the founders can look with pride at the school which has again and again been recognised for its outstanding achievements. Otjikondo is witness to the fact that everyone has a chance in life if they are able to discover and develop skills.

Otjikondo is witness to the fact that a good education, regardless of skin colour, ethnic background, social origins or gender, leads the way to a satisfying life and a peaceful future. „We all have dreams and ambitions that we haven't realized, often because we don't know where to start. However, for me Otjikondo is where my life began; it helped me to express my passions and realize my potential in imaginative and constructive ways with a view to help me bring my project to life. At Otjikondo I learnt to be a responsible, hardworking a go getter in life and an honest individual" says Annakie Muvangua, a proud Otjikondonian, and Programme Assistant for the Culture Sector for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Windhoek National Office.
