Bank Windhoek, Adonai Trust upskill Walvis Bay inmates

12 October 2018 | Banking

A total of 86 inmates from the Walvis Bay Correctional Facility took part in a two-week Money Map training session hosted by Bank Windhoek and the Adonai Trust in September.

Comprising 38 male and 48 female offenders, the session was facilitated by Martin Ganseb, a local pastor from Alpha Course Prison Ministry.

“The participants found the initiative financially educative. For instance, those who have been convicted of theft, testified that if they practiced integrity in the past, they would not have been in prison,” said Ganseb.

Themed ‘Your journey to financial freedom,’ the Money Map training sessions cover a variety of topics that educate the inmates on financial, spiritual and mental fitness as they serve their sentences, and beyond.

Its main purpose is to guide individual inmates to achieve a biblical, joyful and stress-free financial future.

Adonai Trust co-founder, Sanet Vermeulen, said: “The Walvis Bay training session was conducted and received well by the inmates who expressed their gratitude at the end of the gathering.”

The Money Map training sessions, which are expected to benefit close to 200 inmates at four correctional facilities across the country, has three more seminars scheduled to take place at the following correctional facilities: Divundu, Elizabeth Nempembe and Keetmanshoop.
