Thank You NaDEET for opening our eyes

“I have learned a lot. I’m now rich. I hope my family will help me reach that goal of a sustainable life. Thank You. Thank you.”
Anna Katrina Hanse, 41, from Maltahohe made these remarks at the end of their one week education programme at NaDEET Centre earlier this month. Anna and 114 community members all from the Hardap Region were this year’s recipients of sustainable living equipment earned through the programme. Like Anna, these families have an opportunity to help each other realize a sustainable lifestyle by using their solar cookers, fuel efficient stoves and the wealth of knowledge and skills learnt.

Thank you to our sponsors European Union who sponsored 89 of these participants through RUG for Sustainability and Freundschaft mit NaDEET that sponsored Maltahohe.

Implementing sustainable living one household at a time

It is year two of NaDEET’s EU sponsored- RUG for Sustainability project. The RUG team recently surveyed over 200 households and used the opportunity to meet with previous NaDEET Centre participants. It was refreshing to witness first-hand the use of sustainable living equipment such as Katrina Osemas from Gochas cooking on her self-made fuel efficient stove. Watch a short video here of Katrina and others in action!
