 MultiChoice Namibia Handover of TV screens to Namibian Deaf Learners at NISE
Thursday, 22 February 2018 - Another unforgettable memory was created between MultiChoice Namibia (MCN) and NISE (National Institute for Special Education) via a sponsorship handover of 3x 55” HiSense Smart TV’s.

The much needed donation valued at around N$25 000 came after calls for assistance to help the struggling institution fulfil its commitment to their hearing impaired learners. With these donated TV’s, students will be able to stay abreast of current affairs within the education learning discipline.

“This donation will really make a big difference in the lives of our students, we cannot thank MultiChoice Namibia enough for this,” said an overjoyed NISE Principle, Mr Oberholzer.

“Smiles lit the room up as 130 pupils shared in the joy of the precious moment. We heard your call and we answered, it gives me great pleasure to official handover these television sets to you today. As a broadcast media entity, we continue to enrich the lives of our Namibian children through entertainment. In line with MultiChoice Namibia’s vision of enriching lives, we are pleased to have joined NISE’s efforts towards positively elevating the lives of the hearing impaired” added Roger Gertze, GM for MultiChoice Namibia.
