By Frederick Philander WINDHOEK The Bank Windhoek Social Investment Fund has donated a number of start-up toolkits to the value of N$40 000 to the top twenty students who successfully completed the 2006 artisan training programme at the KAYEC Centre in Windhoek. Thus far the bank’s Social Investment Fund contributed N$80 000 to the KAYEC Trust for 2006. The top twenty students of the Ondangwa Centre will receive their toolkits tomorrow. “The Kayec Trust has been one of the Social Investment Fund’s beneficiaries since its launch and to date, and the fund has invested N$320 000 in start-up toolkits for both the KAYEC centres. The Bank Windhoek Social Investment Fund was established in January 2002 with the key focus areas being job creation and education. “During 2006 health was added as one of the Bank Windhoek Social Investment Fund’s focus areas,” a statement from the bank said. “Bank Windhoek is aware of the successes that previous recipients of the toolkits have achieved and we are proud of our contribution towards their success,” said James Hill, Managing Director of Bank Windhoek, at the handover of these toolkits.
