The exhibition is divided into four themes, events, places, people and children. Events which showcase certain occasions that took place either in the refugee camps or at the institute in Lusaka, Zambia; Places which depicts either life at the institute or in one of the SWAPO refugee camps; People who were part of the institute either as visitors, students, lecturers and administrative officers; Children possibly at the institute or in one of the SWAPO camps.

The exhibition will allow for interaction on its website, where visitors can leave their comments and their contact details in case of further consultation.

The photographic collection contains over 1000 images of the various UNIN activities over the years from 1976 until late 1990. Most of the photographs were taken on UNIN grounds in Lusaka, Zambia; some were taken at airports in Zambia and Namibia; some were taken in Namibia shortly before independence and during independence as well several others taken in Germany. However, 90% of the photographs do not have captions, and people, places in the pictures have not been identified, due to limited information available. Some of the images contain dates engraved on them, some have been stamped at the back with a stamp from the Lusaka’s Zambia Information Services. Some pictures have well known Namibian personalities and political figures, however many remain not identified.

Physical copies of the images can be viewed at the ILRC Building, UNAM Library Basement, Archives Unit, Main Campus. The photographs are available for consultation and for further identification.

About the United Nations Institute for Namibia (UNIN)

The United Nations Institute for Namibia (UNIN) was an educational body set up by the United Nations Council for Namibia in Lusaka, Zambia on 26 August 1976. A brainchild of the then United Nations Commissioner for Namibia, Sean MacBride, the idea of UNIN was to ensure that Namibians were educated by the time Namibia got independent. This was to ensure that Namibians could take up meaningful roles in an independent Namibia. 

Namibia at that time did not have its own tertiary education system but was using the apartheid Bantu Education system, which, by design was inferior and meant specifically for blacks in South Africa and Namibia. Thus, in 1974, the United Nations Council for Namibia under Sean MacBride suggested a tertiary education institution for Namibia in Zambia. The institute was inaugurated as UNIN on 26 August 1976 by the then President of Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda. The institute was led by the then Director and current Namibia’s third President, Dr Hage Godfried Geingob.

UNIN was funded by the United Nations Fund for Namibia, for a short period, as well as financial support received from individual government donations and private organizations such as the Ford Foundation.

The institute was closed in September 1990, with its documents, records and photographic collection being transferred to the University of Namibia Library, Archives Unit.

I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to
be using? I'm experiencing some small security problems with my latest website and I
would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any suggestions?

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance.
I must say you have done a amazing job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer.
Outstanding Blog!
