Reducing carbon x 2: 365 Trees Planted & 70 Solar Cookers Distributed cooking

365 trees are planted! After a two day trip to plant 60 trees in Rehoboth at the end of November, the last tree was planted by NaDEET staff in front of NaDEET Centre. NaDEET's 365 Trees Project has given community members an additional way to combat climate change- a new tree in their backyard. This project has made many local residents happy as most people's yards are just dirt and have very little vegetation. May they grow and become big!

During the last tree planting trip, ten parabolic solar cookers were handed over to community members that have completed our programme. In total NaDEET has distributed over 70 solar cookers since 2010.

Rehoboth community members solar cookingThree community groups from southern Namibia have recently completed NaDEET's community education programme. After completing a practical course in solar cooking, fuel-efficient stove use and many other practical hands-on sustainable living tips, community members return home with the necessary equipment to implement what they have learned. Since starting this programme, NaDEET has given out more than 60 solar cookers to communities.

Mariental PS - First Visit to NaDEET

Thirty-five excited learners and 3 teachers from Mariental Primary School attended the NaDEET sustainable living programme for the first time. 

The team were great ambassadors for their school and fully immersed themselves in all the activities including presenting some fantastic enviro-dramas.  Learners worked in teams to solar cook their meals each day and really enjoyed living and learning to live sustainably.

365 Trees Project – Only 143 trees to go!

In September, NaDEET headed out to Edward Fredericks PS in Uibis and then to Gibeon PS and Mariental for our 365 Trees Project.  We planted 87 trees in school grounds and residents’ houses.

We were greeted enthusiastically by learners and residents who helped us find the best locations and watered the indigenous seedlings to give them a good start.  It was thirsty work, but well worth the effort.
