About This Project

Zeka and Anita are missionaries working in a multiethnic area of Rundu, located in North-Eastern Namibia. They live in a poor neighborhood that lacks roads, electricity, and running water. Passionate about children and youth ministry, they focus their efforts on training, mentoring and coaching reliable individuals who are trustworthy to teaching children and youth.

Anita runs a kindergarten (Twinkle Stars Preschool and Academy) as a holistic ministry to meet the urgent need of early childhood education and to expose the children to the Gospel at an early age. The preschool program also helps to build relationships with families in the community and lays the foundation for discipleship.

Most of the children who attend the kindergarten barely get enough to eat at home. By meeting the practical needs of early childhood education, school supplies and food parcels, the Gospel message becomes relevant to their communities. The annual kindergarten graduation and the Christmas party for the children of the community gives every child something to look forward to.

Zeka conducts discipleship meetings with young men in the community and constantly engaging with church leaders about making disciples in order to fulfil the Great Commission.

Anita and Zeka network with and mobilize individuals, churches, NGOs, charities, local government, schools and community groups to support and meet the needs of children and youth in the area.
