1 . Who We Are: A Brief History Capacity Building Initiatives of Namibia (CABIN cc) is an English language enhancement programme, which was established in September, 2000. This follows the closure of the Council of Churches in Namibia (CCN), language programme called Teachers Resources and Training Centre (TRTC) whose main task was to train primary school teachers in using English as a language of instruction in schools particularly from grade 3. The above programme was made redundant in August 2000, the Co-ordinator, Mrs Aune Hambeleleni Odunlami, of the TRTC felt it necessary and important to continue rendering services for the English language communication purposes, hence the establishment of CABIN cc in September, 2000 which became fully operational under the same Co-ordinator of the then TRTC until present (2019) with the help of Namibia Association of Norway (NAMAS) who donated all the equipment and materials used under TRTC. From 2003-2008, CABIN cc got financial assistance from the National Council of Churches of Australia (NCCA) which also supported the TRTC under the same leadership of CABIN cc. Currently, we are operating from Oponganda Community Centre, 2716 Clarinet Street in Grysblok. Mode of operation CABIN cc employs a ‘tailor made’ courses for its participants. This is done with the help of the Entry Test’s outcome, which is based on the four language skills (Speaking, Reading, Writing and Listening). This strategy came out as a result of accumulated experiences in the English language teaching approaches, and is found to be effective, because its intention is to enable adults and out-of-school youth to enhance their English language skills, become literate (for those who are not) and be able to contribute effectively to the development of their communities, including individuals, be it academic or social enhancement. Methodology/Techniques: We employ a variety of methodologies and techniques to enhance learning. Mission: CABIN cc’s mission is to empower Namibians from all walks of life, by helping them to improve their English language communication skills. Vision: Our vision is to establish ourself in all the regions before 2030, making it easier for the CABIN cc to reach out effectively and to facilitate easier access to our services.
