At a press conference, MTC announced Monica Gender Violence, Solution, Ecumenical Social Diaconate Action (ESDA), Namibia Rural Women’s Assembly (NRWA), and Ombetja Yehinga Organisation (OYO) as the beneficiaries, who will each receive N$220 000, with the exception of Monica Gender Violence Solutions getting N$ N$181 320.

As narrated from the onset, the MTC Knockout Project was aimed at creating awareness around GBV and steering a dialogue, and raising funds to better fund and equip experts in the field to better fight GBV. Congratulations to the four organisations and let the work begin.
