This video shows an example of one of the many projects that we support with the Explore Namibia Education Trust.
Being a tour operator, our main business is to organize holidays for people who want to come to Namibia. According to us, this is fair as long as this also benefits this country’s development.
As a registered Namibian company, we do this by paying taxes to the Namibian government, creating employment, and support local suppliers.
But we want to do more.
We think that education is one of the most important elements in an individual’s life, because of its large impact on his or her future. Therefore, we founded the EXPLORE NAMIBIA EDUCATION TRUST FUND.
We select educational projects throughout Namibia and support them through fundraising and sponsoring. The main sponsor is our own company, Explore Namibia CC. Part of the annual profit of Explore Namibia is donated into the Education Trust. Other donations come from (former) independent travellers and other people who are fond of Namibia and like to make a contribution.
Although we love to SHARE OUR ENTHUSIASM for these projects with our travellers, you are of course free to decide whether you want to contribute or not.
However, being locally present in Namibia and by personally knowing these specific development programs, we can ensure that the funding reaches the people who really need it, in a correct and transparent way.
