Our Sponsors and Partners
We are eternally grateful for the support from individuals, companies, trusts and organisations – our valued partners in conservation and patrons of our community projects. The vision and goals of the Naankuse Foundation would simply not be attainable without your cooperation and shared enthusiasm in conserving the wildlife, landscapes and cultures of unique Namibia.
A special thanks from the Naankuse Foundation goes to:
Burgland Charitas and Jan & Tineke Verburg
For your long-term support and dedication to improving the lives of the San community. Thank you for helping us build the Lifeline Clinic, the Charity Lodge and the Bushman village. Your sponsorship of our Clever Cubs children ensures they receive education throughout their developmental years. We would not be here without you.
Angelina Jolie (Jolie-Pitt Foundation)
For sharing our passion and believing in us. We are delighted to be the recipient of a generous grant and hope that Shiloh will grow up with a deep understanding of the country of her birth. Thank you so much for your generosity in helping our projects develop and providing so much more for the animals and people here.
The van Uden Group
For your support of our projects to improve the well-being of the marginalized San community through given employment opportunities, healthcare and education. The van Uden Group has played a vital role in promoting Naankuse’s visions and goals, and our partners Henk Bakker, Thierry and Patrick van’t Hoff are part of the Naankuse family.
Claudio & Sylvie Frateschi, Bruno Frateschi and Annie Cimador
As our loyal European ambassadors, your tireless efforts and enthusiasm in helping spread the cause of the Naankuse Foundation all over the world are immensely appreciated. We’re honoured to have you in our family.
N/a’an ku sê’s preferred airline. Thank you for taking us to the skies and showcasing “Wild Jobs Namibia” on Air Namibia’s in-flight entertainment – the popular conservation series featuring Rudie and Marlice van Vuuren and the conservation work undertaken both at Naankuse and in Namibia as a whole
For being our long-term supporter in keeping us on the move throughout Namibia. Without your support, we could not have reached many remote areas around arid and rough terrain. Thank you to Theo and his team for excellent service, continuous support and sponsorship.
