The perfect location ...

...for a desert guiding course. NaDEET Centre once again hosted the Namibian Academy of Tourism and Hospitality (NATH) Desert Guiding course.  A total of 15 participants spent seven days learning from desert guiding veterans Peter Bridgeford and Steve Braine. Participants enjoyed learning about NaDEET and living a sustainable lifestyle for the week.

Clean-up campaign and tree planting

After a great week at NaDEET Centre, our team went to visit the schoolchildren and community in ||Khuta!hoas. For the past few years we have been hosting school groups and community members from this very remote village about 300 km south of NaDEET Centre thanks to the sponsorship of the ACS Cobham International School.

To celebrate Arbour Day we planted 30 trees at the school and at community members homes, conducted interviews with past participants and organised a clean up campaign at the school.

Small, but significant actions to get closer to a more sustainable lifestyle in Namibia's rural areas.

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!
