The newsletter discusses some of the needs of Namibia, which comprises the Diocese of Damaraland. It reports on the decision to close St. Mary's Mission School, next to the Namibia /Angola border, because of the war in the area. The newsletter also reports on a new school that was opened at Onakwaya on April 18, 1980 with 75 students and on the Activity Centre, an interracial play school started in Windhoek by the Anglican Church in January 1977. The newsletter reports that the Craft Centre, started in 1978, trains indigenous people in the craft of weaving mats and tapestries of locally-grown karukul wool and in sewing clothing to meet community needs. It also reports that, as demand for high school education increases, the possibility of extending St. George’s Diocesan School from the present Standard 4 to a full high school to Standard 10 will be considered. • School at Onekwaya • Budget • Conclusion • Youth Ministry • Activity Centre & Craft Center, Proposed Budget 1980 • Notes on Proposed Budget for Activity and Craft Centre • Extension of St. George's Project • Swakopmund Session • Clergy Refresher Course • "Your Help is Needed"
