The National Youth Council of Namibia has been in existence from 1994 as an umbrella body for affiliated youth organizations and forums. In 2009 through the National Youth Council Act, No 3 of 2009, The Parliament of the Republic of Namibia established the new revamped NYC. In 2011, the 1st Board of Directors of the NYC was inaugurated.
This class of visionary, innovative, globally thinking and locally acting leaders have taken youth development funding needs further by establishing a 100% NYC owned company called Bridgehead Group Holdings Pty Ltd, the company is headed by a erudite, critical thinking and experienced Board of Director’s who are driven by the simple vision of creating a high end investment and equity participating entity in the Namibian economy.
Bridgehead strives to be the leading broad based youth economic empowerment entity and remains committed to nurturing a class of talented, dynamic and visionary young business leaders.
The NYC will be uncompromising in its efforts to ensure its commercial ventures are held to the highest values of true enterprise, including ensuring high value and returns for the NYC, an uncompromising affinity and support for the environment and the world we live in and lastly to ensuring an enduring commitment to the people and youth of Namibia.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my full confidence in the team at Bridgehead in its endeavour to steer the fortunes of Bridgehead forward. Similarly, I invite prospective partners, stakeholders and investors to explore opportunities jointly with Bridgehead, our potential is limitless.
