Sharing skills

It is great to see our new interns jumping right in! Here Elizabeth, our environmental educator, is training one of our new interns, Noah, at being a Centre Assistant. All together three new interns have joined the team in June for a six-month post graduate internship. Looking forward to sharing our skills with you.

Desert Happiness

A month of happiness- living. learning and being free in the desert. Over the past 4 weeks, we worked with the Klein Windhoek Valley Rotary Club and their partners to bring 7 Khomas region schools to NaDEET Centre for a once in a lifetime opportunity. Days were filled with solar cooking, learning about the desert and making new friends. One of the schoolchildren wrote to us: "NaDEET is a fun, educational place. You learn new things- you should go here one day!" 

Teacher Training at NaDEET Centre

Congratulations to our Teach for ESD teachers for successfully completing their first hands-on, practical training in ESD and sustainable living at NaDEET Centre. Over a period of almost two months we hosted a total of six groups of teachers from all 14 regions of the country. All teachers have received their Toolkit which is the foundation of learning and the two-year programme. We look forward to working with our teachers to support the implementation of environmental learning and action nationwide.
