This programme focuses on community development by training and mobilizing community members in vulnerable communities to solve major issues such as HIV/Aids, OVC’s, unemployment and social evils.
DIC was established in August 2005 and is now running several projects in very poor areas in Windhoek and Oshakati. Volunteers are trained to be ready for occupying the approval of spaces in Kilamanjaro and Kabila community. This plot is meant to be used as multi purpose centre to serve those communities in dire need.
It is situated at Erf 669, Kabila plot (1678 m2): Corner of Outapi & Karasburg Street.

Updated: 2010-09-16Teen Tragedy
Justus Marchant Marius Swartbooi
DOB: 12 June 1996
†: 24 April 2010
Teen tragedy… Justus Marius (14) and his brother Sidon (13) drowned in a rock pool behind the Goreangab Dam about 14h30 on Saturday 24th of April 2010. They were on their way home from collecting firewood when they came upon the rock pool and decided to go for a swim, although they were not good swimmers. (Namibian, 26 April 2010)
We knew Justus since 2006 when his father, Johannes Petrus Swartbooi, applied for assistance in the form of a school uniform. Michelle McLean, herself, handover the uniform to Justus, then 10 years old, a grade 3 learner of Elim Primary School at the MMCT office. Through the years Justice did very well in school and therefore the MMCT also assisted him in 2007, 2009 and 2010.
It was with sadness that we heard about Justus who grew close to us through the years. The MMCT then decided to assist both the boys’ funeral arrangements. The Swartbooi and Veldskoen family acknowledged as follows: “It is from utmost importance to mention that there are few companies like yours that one can rely on when in need. Through our sorrow you lighten our hearts which was dark when we learn of our loss. We would hereby like to thank your company from the bottom of our hearts for the assistance granted towards the funeral of our late sons on a very short notice.”
