NaDEET Centre Re-open!

NaDEET Centre is buzzing with life again with our first group of participants for 2021!  Fifteen learners from the Waldorf School Windhoek arrived on Monday evening after briefly getting stuck in a washed out road due to the recent heavy rains. The learners have been waiting to come to NaDEET since April 2020 when their trip was postponed due to COVID-19.  We look forward to welcoming more groups for our programmes this year.

Over 200 trees and rain!

Namibian summer is here and finally after a long drought we have had approximately 50 mm of rain so far. This makes it the perfect time to plant the Camel-thorn saplings that we have been growing throughout this past year in our tree nursery. With the help of two university students, our kitchen, garden and maintenance team have planted over 200 trees over the holidays.
