"Hey, it works! The sun is cooking our food." Schoolchildren from Windhoek are discovering first hand that solar cooking really works and that the food is delicious. For NaDEET Centre it is modus operandi every week. For each week long programme we cook every lunch and dinner on our solar cookers as part of our "we practice what we teach" philosophy.
On Monday 31 October NaDEET hosted a special evening celebration at their Centre to mark the end of the three year RUG for Sustainability action.
Representatives from the schools and communities of Rietoog, Uibes and Gochas, as well as the main donor, the European Union attended. Whilst we were thrilled to celebrate our achievements, it was also sad to say good bye to the people we have worked with so closely for three years. We hope they will keep NaDEET’s vision in their hearts and carry the torch that we have lit together into the future, thus ensuring a more sustainable planet for us all.
