Penduka Netherlands Foundation ⚫ Stichting Penduka

Stichting Penduka plays a pivotal role in providing guidance, expertise and fundraising efforts to the namibian organisation. 


At the heart of our efforts stands Christien, the founding member of Penduka whose profound insights and leadership provide guidance to the Namibian management team and board. 

In collaboration with the local management team and in conjunction with partners such as Wilde Ganzen, we have embarked on a comprehensive program aimed at nurturing the essential skills and capacities required to transform Penduka into a thriving Namibian social enterprise. 


As Penduka's distributor, our commitment lies in showcasing the beauty of Namibian heritage and establishing connections with customers on a global platform. In our endeavour to expand Penduka's horizons and make its products accessible to international markets, we collaborate with talented designers. During the collaborative process, artisans and designers are tasked with developing innovative new products. Throughout this process, we ensure to offer essential training to artisans and designers, promoting intercultural dialogue.


Also we facilitate volunteer placement at Penduka and organise an annual program, bringing Namibian team members to Europe for valuable experiences, workshops and engagement with supporters. 


Through these initiatives, we are empowering Penduka's local team, fortifying their ability to drive positive change within their community.
