Eva’s story

My name is Eva Tsikitis. I would like people to know how it was when I was a girl.

We lived in the nature, moving around. Grandpa would go hunting and grandma would cook for us. When we got thirsty, grandma would find special plants that have much water in them. In the night, we slept under animal skins.

Now I have seven children of my own and we have been living here in Donkerbos for a long time. My little ones do not even know about wild meat.

I wish we could return to the old life where we could move around. There is not much to do here. I wake up in the morning, wash the dishes and rake the yard. After that there is nothing else do but socialise with family and neighbours.

I hope there would be jobs in Donkerbos so that we could support our children and have more to do.


Eva’s community, Donkerbos, has designed several income-generating projects that they want to start. Please consider donating seed money to them through the crowdfunding campaign on https://sanstarter.ictechhub.com/

If you are in Namibia, you can also support the community by purchasing one of the unique fridge magnet souvenirs they have made in collaboration with the ICTechHub. Eva is performing on the dancing-themed magnet. For more information, see https://ictechhub.com/buy-augmented-reality-souvenirs
