This is exactly what twenty-six (26) year old Suoma Ndapandula Jonas did. The eldest of two children, Souma, hails from Okakundu Village in the Omusati Region. Looking for greener pastures, she relocated to Windhoek in 2012. She managed to find just that - employment and tertiary education. Souma got a job at Namibia Protection Services as security guard and at the same time registered for a Certificate in HIV/AIDS Education and Counselling. She completed the certificate successfully in 2016. The lady in question approached the Office of the Dean of Students (UNAM) at the beginning of the year, to enquire whether they could assist her financially to further her studies. She wanted to pursue a Diploma in HIV/AIDS Management and Counselling. The Office of the Dean of Students received her with open arms after learning about Souma’s background. They further assisted her by paying all outstanding study fees. “Each year ODS identifies The University of Namibia and the Universitas Gadjah Mada (Indonesia) recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding on academic exchange.

With the assistance of ODS, Souma is currently pursuing a Diploma in HIV/ AIDS Management and Counselling, whilst residing in one of the UNAM hostels. She has since resigned from her job to pursue her studies fulltime. “ODS is looking forward to witness not just Souma’s success, but all students that come through our doors, Mr Velikoshi noted. “I am thankful to the Office of the Dean of Students for their assistance and the way they treat me. I ask information, materials, publications, and scientific expertise and joint Ms Suoma Ndapandula Jonas that they continue assisting other students, especially those that have financial problems that prevent them from furthering their studies”, Ms Jonas highlighted. “We urge fellow students at the University of Namibia that may have similar problems, to reach out to our department. Kindly try, by all means, to visit ODS” UNAM Student Counsellor, Nyomonee Tjihukununa emphasised.
