Penduka is
a safe haven.

At Penduka, women like Hertha can develop themselves and break down the negative spiral of poverty. By leaving their role as victim behind and taking control of their own fate. By inspiring each other. By supporting each other. By learning from each other. All of this happens in safe and sound surroundings. They aren't hindered by the strict hierarchy that seems to dominate the employment sector in Namibia. Penduka believes in bottom-up development. Penduka believes in the women's loyalty. It believes in an egalitarian organisation, in which women decide on their own educational needs.
