Programmes in Namibia

The Hanns Seidel Foundation is a German non-profit organisation operating in over 50 countries across the world. Our work is largely funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. In Southern Africa we have offices in Windhoek and Johannesburg.

While our Namibia office dates back to 1978, we started operating in South Africa in 1991 in order to support the democratic transition towards an all-inclusive, non-racial democratic society.

The Hanns Seidel Foundation is operating in four main areas:

Environmental Awareness

In partnership with the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia (DRFN), HSF is implementing a three-year project from 2015 to 2017 with the focus on contributing to environmental sustainability through awareness-raising on environmental protection and climate change adaptation and mitigation.
