NUST develops GBV distress app


The Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) took a significant step in the fight against gender-based violence (GBV) with the launch of a "Distress App". 

This initiative aims to provide crucial support and assistance to individuals facing GBV incidents.

The app, named the Distress Application (D-App), holds special significance as it was launched in memory of Delia Maasdorp, whose tragic death earlier this month shook the nation. 

Maasdorp, aged 40, served as the executive director of research, innovation, and partnership at the university.



The National Youth Council (NYC) and the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) aimed at facilitating training programmes as well as providing internships and industrial attachments for students and trainees from both.

The MOA will allow the two parties to co-exist in the NYS' Rietfontein Training Centre, working on various projects to increase opportunities for youth and boost their readiness to partake in the Green Hydrogen Economic Opportunities.
