Official inauguration of the Staff / Volunteer accommodation, NaDEET
On Friday the 17th February we celebrated the official inauguration of the Staff/Volunteer accommodation, NaDEET on the NamibRand Nature Reserve. The Wolwedans Foundation donated all building material and sponsored the carpenters required to build a new classroom and volunteer accommodation at the centre in 2011.
The Namib Desert Environmental Education Trust (NaDEET) is a non-profit organization aimed at empowering Namibians to make decisions for a sustainable future, by offering a hands-on, experiential environmental learning programme for schoolchildren and other groups visiting the Reserve. Wolwedans further supports NaDEET directly with philanthropic contributions such as sponsoring at least two school groups per year to participate in the environmental education programme. Wolwedans similarly assists with building and infrastructure challenges at the centre.
