OUR LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD See our latest project WE CALL IT... HOME Making a change where it matters most.

Our Story

The primary objectives and mandate of the trust are to uplift the living conditions and to benefit the employees of the Namibia Grape Company as well as the surrounding community in the Aussenkehr area. The NGC Social Development Trust has been formally established in 2009. We always consider the current socio economic and developmental challenges we face as a Namibian nation and then the trust focusses on the immediate needs of the people of the Aussenkehr, Kharas area to establish which projects are immediately achievable with the available resources.
