Ogongo Pottery Project

We are producing and selling pottery wares such as vases, cups and pots in the north of Namibia, Ogongo. Traditionally, the pottery wares have been widely used as commodities as well as gifts in our daily life and they are still popular among people in Namibia. They are also becoming popular as traditional decorations for people staying in the lodges in Namibia. These pottery wares are colored with natural red ochre from Ruacana which the Himba tribe applies on their bodies. The natural red ochre color blends well with the pottery clay color, which is one reason for its popularity. During the rainy season, the clay for pottery is unavailable and a ground hole used as a kiln is wet and unusable, so we make curtains and tablecloths instead.

Our approach

Pots of Hope works with the poor, the stigmatized and abused women and girls. Engaging them in a life changing and emotional healing dialogue that enables them to rediscover their potential, and then provide them potting skills for long them empowerment.

Our Aim

  • Improve the livelihoods of rural and urban communities in Kunene Region through pottery making.
  • Reduce rural poverty through pottery making.
  • To stop gender based violence and reduce HIV and AIDS related stigma in the Kunene Region and thereby increase the uptake of HIV and AIDS and TB related services and prevention.

Community dialogues creates an enabling environment for both men, women and custodians of culture,
firstly women and men alone then in a join group challenged the harmful cultural that makes men/women vulnerable to HIV and come up with solutions.

“As young man I believed that beating my girlfriend was the only way to resolve problems. But now I
see and understand things differently. Most importantly men are never part of empowerment programs.
I am happy and honored to be part of the powerful dialogues”. Kamanjab resident.

Youth

Youth of Kamanjab explore how different groups of young people are stigmatized for different behaviors and look at how judgment about young people link to HIV-related stigma. Below they are engaged in a group work exploring between language and stigma.

“Thank you very much for all you have been and did for me. You are my strength of pillar, my friend, sister, mother, everything.” A Pots of Hope teen.

Volunteer

Volunteers are encouraged to share their skills, knowledge with the children, youth women, and men of Pots of Hope.
