Vulnerable Children are children whose quality of life and ability to fulfill their potential is most affected by extreme deprivation and violations of their rights. These children often live in catastrophic situations and relationships characterized by violence, abuse, neglect, exploitation, exclusion, and discrimination.

The Ministry also helps with the identification and mapping of the children that are affected.

Internationally the need for school principals to be trained in management and leadership is acknowledged. This need is increasingly expressed by educational leaders and policy makers and confirmed by leading academic institutions. University of Johannesburg has proved itself as a leader in this field in South Africa, Namibia and also now in the USA through a partnership with Harvard. The Faculty of Education of the University of Johannesburg was approached to become actively involved with the development of school principals in Namibia, through the delivery of an Advanced Certificate in Education-qualification in School Management and Leadership in Namibia during 2007.
The result was a four year project through which 109 school principals and heads of department from the following regions completed the Advanced Certificate in Education: School Management and Leadership: Karas, Otjozondjupa, Erongo, Kunene, Hardap and Oshana. The programme was jointly sponsored by the FNB-Namibia Foundation, the Rössing Foundation, the Pupkewitz Foundation and the Anglo American Namibia Foundation and administered by the Namibian Personal Development Institute (NPDI) and Obib Training Centre.
