It's Time to Grow

Learning about the environment to ensure a sustainable future should start at a tender age.  Are you an educator in Namibia and want fun but educational materials for young learners? NaDEET has just the thing. Our new It’s Time to Grow introduces children to environmental topics such as water, sun, recycling, plants and animals. The child will be engaged in stories and fun activities (contact us for copies of the booklets). Download all four topics here.

Sustainable Energy 4 All!

We all depend on energy but currently energy is not universally accessible to everyone: renewable or non-renewable, energy sources need be converted through technology to be used. Many countries, though, cannot afford these technologies. 2012 was declared as the United Nations International Year of Sustainable Energy for All. All can do their share towards sustainable energy for all! How? Use energy produced from renewable sources and make energy-efficient choices in your everyday life.
You'll find these themes and many other interesting facts about sustainable energy in the new issue of the Bush Telegraph. Download PDF here.

“What is the first thing you’ll cook on your new solar cooker, Linda?” “Meat!”

On a two-day long outreach, four NaDEET staff members visited the communities of Klein Aub, Uibes and Maltahöhe to deliver solar cookers to the participants from NaDEET’s programme in August and September. After a short demo on assembly and usage, excited community members headed home with their new solar cookers which they earned through our new voucher programme!
