Circuit inspector for Opuwo, Chris Tjivikua is concerned about the future of girls from marginalised communities in the Kunene Region.

Tjivikua aired his concerns at the Annual General Meeting of the Hizetjiwa Indigenous People’s Organisation (HIPO) which began in the regional capital on Tuesday.

“Girls of the Ovatue, Ovatjimba and Ovahimba don’t progress academically comparing to boys,” Tjivikua said.

According to him there is a great need to motivate these communities to understand the value of education which can only be achieved through their children.
