Namibia Trip 2022

In October 2022, the Foundation's Board of Directors was able to get to know beautiful Namibia. Members of the partner association "Tangeni Shilongo Namibia" showed us Swakopmund, the desert, many sights and of course the construction site of the ODEC.

Our partner association in Cologne/Swakopmund is Tangeni Shilongo Namibia e. V.
