Commitment to Education.
Educating the disenfranchised is a priority in our social engagement policy. To spearhead our drive to support and add value, Nabirm donated educational materials, books, teaching aids and computers to the educational system in Namibia through the Ministry of Education.
Educational materials worth N$2 million were distributed to several beneficiaries, including the Ministry of Education and Hope Village. The estimated value of the donation is between N$1.5 – 2 million. We hope that through this initiative the children of Namibia will be further exposed to the latest developments in education and training technology. Read more
These materials are intended to give life to our nation building efforts as Nabirm continues to work to give back to the Namibian people. Read more

Nabirm & Michigan State University.
NABIRM, & Michigan State University are embarking on an agricultural project to provide food and water security in Namibia.
Having identified a pilot farm to serve as a model the immediate objectives are to:
- create a viable commercial agricultural operation on the farm which spans 386 hectares;
- develop sustainable agricultural and energy practices;
- develop the farm to serve as a model throughout Namibia & SADC;
- ensure that the pilot farm can serve as a “teaching farm” for faculty and students both from Polytechnic of Namibia and Michigan State University.
The project is primarily agricultural, however other social welfare aspects of development will be considered. Given the anticipated investment to be made in agriculture, telecommunications and infrastructure on the farm, we intend to ensure the provision of affordable housing for local workers. We intend to develop owner -occupier housing units as a major incentive and assistance to workers. The housing components, such as carpentry, furniture making, cement production, paints, tiles, plumbing, electrical will be localized as a contribution to the GDP; the aggregate undoubtedly will be a contribution to the economy.
