Country Background

Its western border is the Atlantic Ocean; it shares land borders with Zambia and Angola to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east. Namibia, the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa. Namibia has a population of 2.6 million. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry – including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals – form the basis of its economy.

The large, arid Namib Desert has resulted in Namibia being overall one of the least densely populated countries in the world.

Our partner: DAPP Namibia 

Development Aid from People to People is a Namibian organization registered as an Association Not for Gain (number 21/90/45) since 1990 and as a Welfare Organization number WO 85 since 1992. DAPP Namibia promotes community mobilization and fight hand in hand with the poor to improve their living conditions.

DAPP’s first direct activities in Namibia immediately after independence were to conduct tree planting actions in the Omusati region in the north together with war veterans and families and to provide affordable and good quality second hand clothes to many people as well as to create an income for other development activities through the DAPP Shops and Sorting Centres. In 1996 the DAPP Vocational Training School, situated in the Omusati Region, was inaugurated. The DAPP Kindergarten and the DAPP Nursery were also established at the same location. Since then DAPP Namibia has expanded its activities within Health, Education and Community Development activities including Climate Actions to many more people and regions of the country.
