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!

Being in Nature

Spending time in the outdoors and learning about the wonders of nature are key components of the NaDEET programme. Children from the Kamwandi Environmental Club recently came to NaDEET Centre during their holidays. Here one of the learners is very concentrated using our It's Time to Identify guide during field work.

Penduka, penduka

During April almost 60 teachers gathered at NaDEET Centre in three separate workshops to translate NaDEET's popular pre-primary booklet pack "It's Time to Grow" into Namibian languages. Penduka, meaning "Wake up!" is the theme of one of the new Sun booklet poem. The other booklets are Water, Animals & Plants and Recycling. This project aims to improve Quality Education in Namibia through the promotion of indigenous languages and of course the environment. Teachers at the workshop- as with all of our participants- solar cooked, saved water and explored the Namib. Many remarked it was the best professional development training they had ever attended as it really taught them new practical skills that they can use in their work and at home!
