Who is NaDEET?

Registered in Namibia as a non-profit trust, NaDEET is a vibrant environmental education organisation. At the core of NaDEET’s programmes is our environmental education centre located on the NamibRand Nature Reserve. Children and adult participants learn first-hand about sustainable living, biodiversity and the balance between humans and the environment. Our environmental literacy and outreach programmes complement the Centre’s activities and expand its reach nationwide. Since 2014, NaDEET has a small head office in Swakopmund. 

 

What is sustainable living?

Sustainable living enables us to:

  • balance the social, political and environmental aspects of our existence
  • improve our quality of life
  • share responsibility in managing the Earth’s resources
  • save money!

New "weltwaerts" Volunteers at NaDEET

Since 2008 we have been welcoming year-long volunteers from Germany through the weltwaerts programme. This official exchange between the Namibian and German governments promotes understanding of cultures and sharing of ideas. For NaDEET it has been an extremely enriching exchange for our staff and participants. We welcome our most recent volunteers Klara and Franzi.

Transport crisis averted

Due to the generosity of many of our neighbouring lodges and other sponsors, we have been able to avert a transport crisis. For many years the schools in our local Hardap region have received free transport from the Ministry to come to NaDEET Centre. Due to major budgetary constraints this was to be cancelled. Luckily we were able to negotiate with the government to still provide vehicles as long as we provide the fuel and other expenses. This has enabled all of our planned school programmes during the past two months and for the remainder of the year to take place. A big thank you to Ministry of Education, Wolwedans Foundation, Tok Tokkie Trails, NamibRand Family HideOut, Solitaire, FNB Namibia, & Beyond and Gondwana for your support!
