Namibia - December 2013
Dear friends of Namibia,
The Festive Season has started and it is time for our newsletter with a special request to our friends of Acacia Namibia. For quite some time Acacia Namibia was searching for an opportunity to support the children from Katutura. During a garage sale Dietlind met Memory from Katutura.
Here is her story:
„My name is Memory !Kharuxas and I was born in 1974 in Otjiwarongo. I am married and together with my husband we have 5 children. I grew up in Khorixas where I also went to school. My parents lived apart and my mother was working as a domestic worker on a farm. To support her I dropped out of school and moved to Windhoek to work as a domestic worker as well. In 1991 I gave birth to my first son and moved to Grootfontein to work as a saleslady in a pharmacy. In 2002 I started helping at the Soûtere Centre in Windhoek to teach children in the Kindergarten. Unfortunately the centre was closed in October 2011. In 2012 I helped as a teacher at Kabouterland Kindergarten. Currently we are living in Katutura, Windhoek in a small house and try to give our children a comfortable and safe home.
"...We are back in France after this wonderful trip across Namibia. We enjoy all different aspects of this country: landscapes, people, food, weather. Your choice of hotels and lodges was excellent. We recommend two small lodges: Mesosaurus Fossil Camp and Namtib Desert Lodge, we had very interesting discussions with the owners. And last but not least, your car is very well adapted for roads and tracks... "

"... Dear Dietlind, We unfortunately missed meeting you personally on our trip to Namibia last week but I wish to thank you nonetheless for a tremendous experience in your country. I’m sure Penny will be writing to you herself about the trip as will our dear friends from Canada, but from my side I can only say we couldn’t have wished for better from you and your organisation. Well done on an excellent job indeed! ..."
" ... Thanks Dietlind, this perfect, you are so great to do business with , “stress free” ..."

" ... Gerade gestern hab ich über den Namibia-Prospekten und Reiseführern gesessen und mich gerne an meine tolle Tour letztes Jahr erinnert. Das Etosha-Taxi, das nur für mich fuhr, war der Höhepunkt! ...."
