About the Namsov Community Trust
The Namsov Community Trust is a 10% shareholder in Namsov Fishing Enterprises. We are governed by an independent and Namibian board of Trustees. Since our inception in 1991, we have been driven to make social investments that change the lives of Namibian people meaningfully.
We are proud to root a part of our success in being able to contribute to projects nation-wide that have had various socio-economic impacts in our communities nationwide.
“To sustainably improve the lives of Namibian people by meaningfully and proactively delivering shared value between communities and our business.”
The Namsov Community Trust is divided into 3 areas
Employee Development Programme
The vision of the Employee Development Programme is inspired by the value we place on our people. They drive the daily value we create and share.
Our programme focus for our employees is to ensure they too benefit from this value in terms of a sustainable housing programme, affordable quality health care & access to company support where it matters most to them and their families.
