Penduka, meaning “Wake up!”, is an NGO in Katutura - Windhoek that supports rural, disadvantaged women from all the different ethnic groups of Namibia. Women that are in poverty, ill, handicapped, or illitered and who usually cannot participate in the labour market, get an opportunity to obtain an income through craftsmanship. Beautiful pottery, embroidery and jewellery are made by the women themselves. We support Penduka by purchasing locally made crafts as welcome gifts for our guests and visit them during our tours, to enjoy a traditional meal with ingredients from the local vegetable garden, to watch a traditional dance, and possibly even to join a workshop where our guests can create their own souvenir!
