The Baumgartsbrunn Primary School hosts around 200 students from the Damara (Khoikhoigowab) language group. The Damara have a low social status in Namibia. Due to the enormous distances between villages and farms, Baumgartsbrunn is a boarding school where students and teachers stay during the school year.
The children stay in four hostels: young boys, young girls, older girls, older boys. Children in each hostel are cared for by a matron, and a kitchen team of 4 people. Together with Principal Ms Emgard Meroro, the school has a total of 9 teachers (6 women, 3 men).
