Gondwana Care Trust – Sharing our hearts

Gondwana lodges are run as tight-knit groups with close connections to their surrounding communities. This makes our commitment to social responsibility and community support fundamental to the way our company is run as we have always strived to make a positive difference to our environment and communities. The Gondwana Care Trust currently supports different projects across Namibia

Our efforts include the donation of food, clothing, bedding, educational products for schools and support of important environmental causes, like the Namibia Wild Horses Foundation. Furthermore, Gondwana assists with smaller building projects for school facilities in the vicinity of their lodges, sponsors prizes for award giving ceremonies and welcomes groups of learners free of charge in their lodges.

With the establishment of the Trust, we hope to increase public awareness of our projects and to provide a channel for other like-minded people and businesses to get involved and enhance the good we are able to do.

Gondwana takes action

The Gondwana Care Trust runs a Christmas Bag Project every year, during which stationary and a few treats and sustainable food stuffs are sponsored and these are placed into a reusable bag. The bags are donated to vulnerable children across the country at the end of the year, so that they may start their school year with a basic stationary kit and bag. Want to get involved? Support the project by ‘buying’ and donating a bag at Gondwana House (42 Nelson Mandela Avenue) or any Gondwana Collection property for a mere N$200.00.

The Sunbeam Collector Project aims to share light and promote literacy in Namibia. Project partners, Gondwana Collection and Bank Windhoek, sell copies of the children’s book “The World Famous Sunbeam Collector” in the curio shops at all the Gondwana lodges and at Gondwana House in Windhoek (N$150.00). The proceeds are used to buy solar lamps for children without access to electricity, to read and study in the evenings.

The book Chariots of Fire by Pompie Burger is aimed at the conservation of the Carmine Bee-eater colony close to Zambezi Mubala Lodge. It captivates the reader with wonderful images and offers deep insights into the life of these colourful birds. The proceeds from this book go to supporting the Sikunga Fish Guards, who not only prevent illegal fishing on the Zambezi but also protect the sensitive riverine ecosystem including the Carmine Bee-eater colony. The books are available for N$400 (soft cover).

Many Namibians end their days with empty stomachs. With the MealForTwo Project we aim to reduce the number of people for whom this is a daily reality. The Care Trust distributes the excess meat from Gondwana’s Self-Sufficiency Centre in Stampriet to soup kitchens, orphanages, schools and hostels. The Trust aims to expand its feeding scheme by including vegetables and sustainable food stuffs and is thus looking for partners to take this project one step further.
