For over 14 years, HISA has been empowering women, children and communities through education, food and nourishment, and capacity building. They aim to break the cycle of poverty and build resilience by implementing the FXB village model. With funding from the US Embassy in Namibia, HISA was able to convert shipping containers into shops, to empower women and encourage them to start their own small entrepreneurial business. Through our visit, we support the women’s community who have been trained in jewellery production and sales, to sell their locally made jewellery to visitors.
