Ogongo is the only village at the northern regions that have agricultural college which is now renamed to University of Namibia-Ogongo Agriculture Campus.There is a field that used to supply mahangu to the whole country but now they cancelled it and turn it into ervens because of land issues. Many of the young people from all over Namibia especially Northern regions, who are interested in agricultural apply here to further their studies[1]. The University have projects for vegetables like tomatoes, onions, carrots and green pepper. There is a vocational training centre (Marco Mpollo Training Centre) which accommodates many young people who cannot afford to pay for themselves at the high institution or who did not get a loans or bursaries. Many of them perform very well and some are self employed.This vocational is really helping young people in the village as well as the nearby villages because it has accommodation for students from distance places People in the community benefit from it as create job opportunities to the community.
