The Wolwedans Foundation has the development of Namibia and the wellbeing of its people at heart.

The Wolwedans Foundation Trust was established in June 2010 by NamibRand Safaris (Pty) Ltd. The aim of creating this Trust was to have an entity through which the company can handle its corporate social responsibility commitments - “doing well by doing good”. The Wolwedans Foundation Trust is run by a Board of Trustees who oversees all projects development and administration.

Vocational education and training is currently the biggest commitment made by the Wolwedans Foundation so far. The Foundation oversees the governance of our two training institutions, the Wolwedans Desert Academy (DA) and Namibian Institute of Culinary Education (nice).

In conclusion, as our slogan states “in it for the long run”, we aim to make a difference to the livelihoods of fellow Namibians through the provision of education and training opportunities; an aim that is mirrored by Namibia’s Vision 2030.
