Usakos Needy Children Support Organization
UNCSO is a non-profit, non-governmental organization striving for a better environment for the children in the community of Usakos.
The project takes place in the small town of Usakos, Erongo, Namibia.
We care for orphans and vulnerable children whose extended families do not have the means e.g. financially to take care of the children.
With great engagement we do everything improving the livelihood of the needy children for a better and prospective future.
The project is supported by donations and realized through the project coordinator Mrs. Marianne Izaaks and the great support of volunteers.

A big thanks from Christian Wilken – volunteer at the second term 2014
I miss Marianne’s powerful style of speaking Afrikaans to a child’s parent and translating it afterwards in English for us volunteers.
I miss small Usakos with its supermarket, the treehouse restaurant with its delicious burgers (in case there are buns), the butchery just around the corner with its great biltong.
I miss the view to the old water tower and the steam engine in the city center, which seem to melt under the hot sun.
I also miss our tour guide Hannelie and the kind Andrew, who both showed us some of the nicest places of Namibia. Thanks to Marianne we got to know these two outstanding persons. All these memories are irreplaceable and now when I look back at this essay it actually helped to freeze them in my mind.
Thank you Marianne and thank you Agnes, Loloki, Elisabeth, Selma, Hope, Melody, Natasha, Sally, Bibi, Michael, Michelle X, Michelle E, Desi, Palomida, Markus, Margret, David, Steven, Jack, Denzel, Jenny, Chaminda, Cherolda, Frieda, Jakob, Chantel, Rejoice, Rauna, Jan, Frans, Stanley, Andreas, Amor, Martha, Andreas, Pomwene, Alison, Innocent, Taleni, Aletha, Glenda, Grace, Shoudin, Lukas. Thank you so so much – It was just amazing.
For every one who considers visiting the UNCSO to collect a smile from so many special kids and a strong woman, I just can recommend to hit the road as soon as possible. It’s worth it.
