Naankuse Foundation

The N/a’an ku sê Foundation is a charity dedicated to conserving the landscapes, cultures and wildlife of Namibia.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to conserve the land, cultures and wildlife of Namibia, Africa. We aim to achieve this through encouraging participation, education and innovative activity.

    We do this through four projects; The N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary, N/a’an ku sê Research and Conservation, The Lifeline Clinic, and the Clever Cubs Pre-Primary School (and Bushmen Welfare).

    Wildlife Sanctuary:
    Our Wildlife Sanctuary provides a second chance to orphaned, injured and conflict animals. Whenever possible our goal is to release animals back into the wild - only those animals too ill, abused or habituated remain at the sanctuary.

    N’a/an ku sê Research: Carnivore Conservation Research Project and Rapid Response Unit:
    To help to protect and conserve Namibia’s majestic animals, we carry out essential field research at N’a/an ku sê sites on elephants, hyenas, wild dogs, cheetahs and leopards.

    Clever Cubs School and San Bushmen Welfare:
    We provide education to San Bushmen children who have been denied the opportunity to receive quality education. We also provide employment, training and accommodation to more than 50 San Bushman families in a variety of roles.

    The Lifeline Clinic:
    Our Lifeline Clinic based in Epukiro provides free primary healthcare services to more than 3,500 patients every year – through both clinic based healthcare and our outreach around the region. More than 40% of the patients treated there are children and more than 90% are San Bushmen.
