Namibia officially the Republic of Namibia is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean.

Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry – including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals – form the basis of its economy. The large, arid Namib Desert has resulted in Namibia being overall one of the least densely populated countries in the world.
The education system in Namibia needs improvement. The primary education enrollment rate is 89% ranking it 105th. The enrollment rate to secondary doesn't see the drop that many other African countries do at 64%. The quality of education is ranked 108th overall, ranking 105th in quality of Maths and Science.

Certain services like organ transplants are only available from private medical centers, putting them out of reach for the majority of Namibia's citizens
