New Clinic And Staff Housing
The Queen Sophia resettlement farm in the Outjo District was part of the Namibian Government’s resettlement programme. The project consisted of five government farms with a total of 21 000 hectares, situated about 75 km between Outjo and Otavi in the Kunene region. In 1998 fifty families were resettled here with the hope that they would establish livelihoods here and the farm would become commercially viable. To assist them, the Spanish Government contributed N$ 14 million towards infrastructure development in the area that included houses, a school, farm equipment and livestock. Fittingly, the settlement was named after the Spanish queen, the main sponsor of the project.
