|WINDHOEK A.J. Bouye Color Rush Jersey , Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- As Namibia seeks to improve citizens' livelihoods through education, a China-funded school in the national capital Windhoek is contributing to the realization of the goal.
Chairman Mao Zedong High School, named after the Chinese communist revolutionary leader, has become a beam of hope for students, who had to receive lessons in makeshift temporary structures.
According to George Louw, the principal Yannick Ngakoue Color Rush Jersey , the school in Otjomuise 7de Laan informal settlement in Windhoek is bridging gaps of education provision in the community.
"The school has given hope not only to educators and the community, but also to our learners who now have the privilege of accessing inclusive education in a conducive learning environment. The learners were previously taught in tents before moving to this school," he said on Wednesday.
Gerard Vries, Director of Education in Khomas region, said the opening of the school has addressed a major challenge -- school and classrooms space shortages -- and obviated classes in tents.
The school, which had its first intake of learners in May last year Myles Jack Color Rush Jersey , culminated from a bilateral agreement signed between the Nambian education ministry and the China Youth Development Foundation in 2011.
A year on, the school now accommodates a total of 653 students registered for the 2017 school year in the grades 8 to 12.
Louw added that its facilities comprising 23 classrooms, chemistry and physics laboratory, computer laboratory, music room, multi-purpose hall and a sport field is not only offering learners access to academic education Leonard Fournette Color Rush Jersey , but holistic learning approach in other social elements.
"Our learners are given a chance to social and inclusive quality education while teachers have access to a resource center for continuous professional development. This way they have an opportunity to groom other skills and identify other talents," Louw said.
The mantra of the school is to groom learners into disciplinary visionary leaders, he added.
Parents and the community are delighted, too. "The Chinese-funded school has not only changed the landscape of the location but also brought educational services at the community's doorsteps," said Naemi Shikongo, a 7de Laan resident.

LANCASTER, the United States, Oct. 6 (Xinhua) -- "I think the only problem we're going to have is that I don't know if we have enough people for all the jobs that are being created," U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Friday in an event celebrating the opening of Chinese automaker BYD's expanded facility in the U.S. city of Lancaster in southern California.
The BYD -- the world's largest manufacturer of electric vehicles -- literally stands for Build Your Dreams. It unveils here on Friday its expanded battery-electric bus manufacturing facility, North America's largest of its kind.
The grand opening celebration drew nearly a dozen elected U.S. officials and government representatives, all extolling the significance of a Chinese investment that creates more and more jobs.
This expansion is an addition of a new wing to the current BYD Coach and Bus space Telvin Smith Color Rush Jersey , bringing the total manufacturing facility to nearly 42,000 square meters (450,000 square ft), quadrupling the size of its facility from its initial 2013 footprint, according to the company.
The growth of BYD Coach and Bus reflects a rapid transition toward electric transportation and will allow the BYD to build up to 1,500 battery-electric buses annually.
"The expanded BYD Coach and Bus manufacturing facility represents a fact I have stated for many years: that policies that address climate change and building a strong economy are not mutually exclusive Black A. J. Cann Jersey ," said California Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de Leon.
Over the past several years, people in Southern California have seen a lot of manufacturing jobs go away, as American companies have moved their production lines to China and other developing countries.
However, since the BYD established its U.S. electric bus manufacturing capabilities in Los Angeles County, the company has already created nearly 800 full-time jobs throughout the state. And the manufacturing facility expansion will enable the BYD to hire up to 1,200 full-time workers at top production-line capacity.
"BYD is a company that has brought good paying manufacturing jobs back to California while other companies are choosing to export those jobs to other states and countries Black Dante Fowler Jr Jersey ,"said U.S. Congressman Steve Knight.
"We need more companies like BYD in California that are training and building up a workforce of skilled individuals that are prepared for the manufacturing jobs of the future. We are lucky to have them in our community!"
Lancaster, a community of more than 156,000 inhabitants since 2013, boasts more than 350 days of sunshine per year, making it an ideal place to pioneer new solar energy technologies.
The BYD's manufacturing facility is powered 100 percent by renewable energy, which is provided by the City of Lancaster's Energy Company Black Dede Westbrook Jersey , Lancaster Choice Energy.
"It's good for the economy and the environment. It is great to see Lancaster partner with sustainable energy industries in order to provide cleaner greener transportation that will benefit the quality of our air, while creating local jobs," said Congresswoman Nanette Diaz Barragan.
