Gateway to the world

Gateway to the world...
By Margret Plank

The documentary film Gateway to the World takes place in Namibia’s capital city Windhoek, Katutura suburban area. In the film, two young library users are followed around the poor Greenwell Matongo area, where the local library functions as the people’s gateway to better life. Trevelin, 20 years, did not pass the 10th grade of schooling and ended up as one of the many out-of school youths in the area. Persuaded by a friend, he found his way to the nearby library, got interested in studying computers and is nowadays giving basic computer classes as a volunteer teacher in the library.
