The International Training College (Lingua) in collaboration with Air Namibia and the Ghana High Commission Namibia send 20 students and staff off to Ghana for a study tour last week (07 Sept).

Lingua’s managing director, Ingrid Mettler said within two months of planning they are grateful that is has become a success. She added that this provides an opportunity to explore other businesses outside Namibia and expand their minds on different areas of Ghana.

Ghanaian diplomat, Elizabeth Salamata Forgor said students need to show interest in what they are going to do and told them about Ghana’s lifestyle.

“Bring back something that will help you build and achieve your goals,” she said.

One of the students, Amy Claasen, who is studying business administration, said she is looking forward to explore and learn a lot of things in Ghana and she thanked the institutions for presenting her with such an opportunity.

“I really look forward for this opportunity and I hope to come back with more knowledge than what I already know” said Claasen.

Air Namibia manger of reservations and ticketing, Alwina Rijarua, said that as the national airline they are honoured to be part of educational initiatives such as this one.

“This is why Air Namibia is keen to support innovative activities by providing special group fares to make it accessible to everyone to use education as the weapon to change the world,” she said.

She further said that this is one way to indicate that they rally behind educational programs to prepare our future leaders. She also called upon progressive institutions to invest in this type of educational programs to ensure that they have a desired outcome.

Rijarua congratulated Lingua students for taking advantage of Air Namibia’s new route to Ghana to take education to the next level while also exploring and experiencing West Africa.

“This is a life time opportunity for students, granting them a chance to get exposed to different culture, self-realization, new interest, business opportunities as well as make new friends,” she said.
