The LCFN in Namibia

The Living Culture Foundation Namibia will mainly operate in Namibia. The main reason is that the idea for the foundation was born in Namibia and was drafted to a large extend by Namibians. The main advantage for a successful teamwork exists in the already available cultural competence of the supporters, who are familiar with the mentality of a lot of cultures and communites in Namibia and have important knowledge about the country, due to their work in the tourism sector.

There are multiple reasons for the decision to be active in Namibia. Namibia has world wide the highest contrast between poor and rich. This fact motivates the supporters of the LCFN with in the scope of their possibilities to reduce this contrast.

Namibia is a culturally very versatile and heterogeneous. Apart from the official language English another 26 “living” languages exist. The demographic structure is also versatile and different. Twelve main ethnic groups exist: Owambo, Kavango, Herero, Himba, Damara, Nama, Topnaar, Rehoboth Baster, Coloureds, Caprivians, San, Tswana and the descendants of European and Asian immigrants. Due to this heterogeneity Namibia offers excellent possibilities for cultural promotion of different societies. Namibia is after Mongolia the country with the lowest population density. As a result the different societies live relatively isolated from each other. This is also a reason why the country has an interesting and culturally versatile potential, which allows the initiation of many different projects.

Namibia is furthermore a very safe state, with a low potential for conflict. Also corruption is compared to other African countries relatively low. Due to the good infrastructure distant destinations can be reached easily. All this as well as the wild, original nature offer important possibilities in the tourism sector, which is highly relevant for the LCFN.

Perspectively the LCFN plans to develop into an internationally acting organisation that helps people worldwide.
