Pageant entrant organises fun day for needy children

BELIEVE IN MAGIC … Julia Kandjimbi recently held a fun day with children from Needy Hearts Soup Kitchen.

Julia Kandjimbi, who entered Miss Supranational Namibia this year, has made it her mission to rekindle disadvantaged children’s belief in magic.

Under the theme ‘Building Imagination, Creativity and Fun’, she recently launched a programme at the Kayec Youth Development Centre at Wanaheda, offering a fun-filled afternoon of tutoring, homework help and project aid, in addition to after-school care and support services.

More than 30 children participated in the fun day, enjoying face painting, dancing, educational games, jumping castles and art.

“This project was inspired by my conviction that youngsters have unwavering faith in us,” Kandjimbi says.

She believes children are pure and full of love.

“Inside, I felt warm and hopeful. Since I still feel like a child at heart, I chose to spend the day with them,” she says.

Kandjimbi also spent Independence Day with children from Needy Hearts Soup Kitchen at Hakahana, which provides food for over 70 children.

“Wonderful women in the community manage the kitchen and they rely on donations every Saturday. A warm, freshly made dinner and water bottles were given to a few children.

“We have to keep in mind that these helpless, young people need us more than anything else. They need our assistance, faith, and conviction that magic can happen tomorrow,” she says.

Kndjimbi says she wants the children to believe in humanity when they grow up.

“We can listen to our inner child and hope, love and believe that things will be better, because we want to do things to make it better,” she says.

Kandjimbi says the children from the soup kitchen need toys and study materials.
