The Initiative

Welwitschia — Education Initiative for Namibia has emerged from a group of young people who have made a development volunteer service in Namibia 2010/2011 with the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ). The initiative is committed to the improvement of the educational situation in Namibia and on the other hand for the presentation of diverse and stereotype-free understanding of Namibia in Germany.

Since March 2014, the organisation is registered and engaged in Namibia as well. The goal of the organisation has always been to be not only Germany-centred but represented by young Namibians as well. Whereas Welwitschia in Germany focuses more on activities to diversify the picture of Namibia in Europe, the Namibian branch is committed to improving the chances for furthering the education of young Namibians by hosting application workshops all around the country.

The two organisations work independently from each other but in close cooperation such as by hosting the Facebook page “NamCareerService by” together.
