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.

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.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.
Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers?

I'd genuinely appreciate it.

For a dozen years, the Rooney Rule has required NFL teams to interview [url=http://www.authenticnfljerseyscheap.us.com/]Wholesale Jerseys[/url] at least one minority candidate for any vacant coaching or GM post. The man for whom it was named, Steelers co-owner Dan Rooney, is open to seeing whether it could be improved.
