CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Namdeb has over the years successfully ensured that the country’s most inaccessible diamond resources have turned into wealth that touches the lives of all Namibians. Namdeb’s mining operations are based in the south of Namibia. As such a substantial emphasis has been placed on providing support for communities in within the Karas region.
Other significant projects supported in the Karas region include the renovation of the Ontanda building (Lüderitz),!Gôaron (Bethanie and Karasburg), Meekulu (Lüderitz), provision of science kits for schools and financial support towards the training of science teachers.
Through its shining commitments, Namdeb has benefited various institutions and projects across the country through investments in the sectors of Education, Small Medium Enterprise (SME) development, Health and Welfare, Sports, Science, Heritage and Tourism, and Nature Conservation.
Some of these entities which have received financial assistance from Namdeb, include Women’s Action for Development (WAD), Namibia Sports Commission, Evaflo Investment cc, Okovikenga Printing Works cc, Concordia College in Windhoek, Nossob Primary School Library in Witvlei, Omungholyo Combined School the Valombola Vocational Training Centre, NIMT satellite centre in Keetmanshoop, Oshakati Intermediate Hospital, Ileni Tulikwafeni in Okahandja and Theresia’s Orphan & Vulnerable Children’s Home in Rundu. From an environmental perspective, organizations such as the Brown Hyena Research Project and the Children in the Wilderness programme have also benefited.
With the focus to sustain mining operations to 2050 and beyond, Namdeb remains committed to being the pride of Namibia’s Mining. As such the organization has embarked upon social performance strategies as well as a learning journey, promoting knowledge related to sustainability principles.
The way forward for Namdeb is to continue exploring avenues where it can create a more sustainable impact in support of Namibia’s national goals.
