Behind the Scenes: Meet Helen

In April, SCOLA traveled to Namibia for our Country of the Month. We explored an open market to discover how Kapana, a traditional Namibian dish is made, and experienced Namibia through the eyes of locals with our Photos of the Week. Some of you may be wondering who led us on our Namibian adventure…

SCOLA provider Helen is 39 years old and was born in the town of Rehoboth, 89 km from the capital city of Windhoek. She is a start up business owner and sells ice cream.

Helen started working for SCOLA in 2013 when she was contacted by the media to see if she would be interested. She says that at first she was skeptical, thinking maybe it was a scam, but then she got a camera from SCOLA and knew it was real. Helen first started working with SCOLA for the money, but says that later on she really started to enjoy herself making On the Street Videos and sharing her home country of Namibia with the rest of the world.

Along with the Country of the Month, Helen has also been sending in some interesting material for SCOLA’s new service, Savoir-Vivre! Visit a music store in Namibia and travel the streets of and other foreign lands as you discover other cultures and experience new lifestyles. Log on for free today at www.scola.org!
