Union Capacity-Building  

Namibia National Teachers’ Union (NANTU)  

When Namibia was freed from being a colony of South Africa and its apartheid system in 1990, NANTU was organized as a union for teachers. The BCTF has provided assistance with the development of union training programs since an initial project in 1994. It has also worked with NANTU in programs to strengthen teacher use of English, the language of instruction but the first language of only a few of the teachers.
