Namibia's well-developed governmental and non-governmental agencies at the national and municipal levels sponsor most projects along with some projects with NUST faculty. Projects generally focus on issues of sustainable development and improving educational opportunities. Private sector organizations may also sponsor projects. Some projects take place in towns and peri-urban informal settlements. No prior knowledge of Namibia or Southern Africa is needed, but preparation includes a heavy commitment to learning about the culture of Namibia while preparing specifically for the project.
Past Namibia students have:
•Created an educational video to teach rural students about Namibia's ecosystems through a mobile classroom
•Identified ways to increase sustainable tourism among communities in the Namib Desert
•Developed a pathway to jobs and self-employment for citizens of Windhoek informal settlements
