Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) through their Omuhoko Trust partnered with NamPol and donated 500 whistles to the Namibian Police Force’s ‘Keepmesafe’ awareness campaign on Friday, 29 March.

The driving force behind PwC’s partnering decision was after Country Senior Partner, Ms Nangula Uaandja expressed her concern towards the escalating reports of kidnapping and violence against children in Namibia.
Panic was spread among Namibians in the past year when disturbing newspaper articles and social media posts about child abductions surfaced. PwC decided to try curb this evil by supplying school children with whistles which they can use when facing dangerous situations.
Head of Crime Prevention Directorate Commissioner C Nakanyala said “The campaign will address violence against children in schools, homes and communities by teaching learners about their personal safety, equip them with safety tips and how to react to unsafe situations by immediately blowing a whistle whenever they are in distress, danger, feel threatened or find themselves in sticky situations.” The spokesperson of PwC said: “We believe that this awareness campaign will result in quick reaction from the public when a crisis occurs. We appreciate the work that NamPol does in Namibia and look forward in building a nation that will participate in issues that effects the safety and wellbeing of our children. We challenge all other Corporate Companies to support this initiative and donate whistles to NamPol.”
