History

In 2004, People in Need, a non-profit organization from the Czech Republic, founded a sheltered craft workshop in Keetmanshoop with the aim to reduce the social and economic consequences of HIV/AIDS and TB in southern Namibia. The project was supported by the Government of the Czech Republic between 2004 and 2009. In May 2009 Karas Huisen Crafts was established as an independent Namibian charitable trust which took over the operations of the craft workshop to ensure its long-term sustainable functioning under the Namibian governance after the withdrawal of People in Need from Namibia in September 2010.

Our Vision

Hui-sen means “help yourself” in the Nama language. Karas Huisen Crafts’ vision is to create an enabling environment for social and economic empowerment and upliftment of disadvantaged Namibian people; especially women.

Our Mission

Karas Huisen Crafts aims to provide vulnerable Namibian people with skills and opportunities to help themselves. KHC is determined to assist namely those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and TB with income generating opportunities that would enable them to provide for themselves and their families.

Our Strategy

Karas Huisen Crafts’ strategy embraces the development of income generating activities focused mainly on crafts and needlework as well as a learning process providing the beneficiaries with opportunities to master general work responsibilities. KHC endeavors to provide its employees with training and the chance to use their talents and acquired skills to generate basic income from making and selling craft items to the public in Namibia and overseas.

Beneficiaries

Karas Huisen Crafts provides the most vulnerable people from Tseiblaagte, the poorest suburb of Keetmanshoop, with an opportunity to learn basic working habits, to develop their professional skills and to strengthen and build their self-esteem. The sheltered workshop operated by KHC currently provides jobs for about 50 people, out of which an absolute majority are women. The KHC employees, often single mothers and foster parents, are usually the main breadwinners in their households. Considering the family members of the KHC staff, dependent on the income from the workshop, in total about 300 beneficiaries directly benefit from the project. The average salary of a workshop employee is about 700 NAD (100 USD) per month.
The KHC workshop provides job opportunities primarily for people suffering from HIV/AIDS and TB or other chronic diseases, however KHC also offers jobs to other people in need from households affected by HIV/AIDS or suffering from profound poverty.
Over the years, the project strategy focusing on economic empowerment of disadvantaged community members has proved a significant impact on people’s lives, especially in terms of building their self-confidence, self-discipline, relevant financial planning and providing a longterm vision to families of the KHC staff and especially their children (an access to secondary and tertiary education etc.). Unskilled laborers without any long-term experience with formal employment have become craft professionals typically working for the project already for more then 5 years. About one third of the people who worked for the project over the years later found employment in the formal labor market.
KHC is proud to be a mother-friendly employer, encouraging mothers to bring their children to the workshop.

Ruheleben Estate – Swakop River Olives

 

Swakop River Olives

Ruheleben is a German word, roughly translated as “peaceful life”, and it is the name of the grove where Swakop River Olives are grown 12 kilometres outside Swakopmund, Namibia. Ruheleben farm is on the banks of the Swakop River with views of endless sand, black rocky outcrops and sharply angled golden sand dunes, sphinx-like guardians of the silent desert. The silence is broken only by the intrusion of human activity.

The hardy olive seems to thrive in these desert conditions of heat, intense light and dry air. They can even withstand the blisteringly hot East winds in winter, which come hurtling down the desert plains to the coast, gathering heat and dust on the way down.

Farm and Workshop

The olives from Ruheleben are popular with the locals and used in many of the restaurants. Green and black olives are handpicked and sorted for the curing and bottling process. It’s a long process which is very labour intensive, with the emphasis on quality. Even the labelling, and the choice of bottles has been carefully done using Namibian artist Koos van Ellinckhuizen for the label design and Margaret Courtney-Clarke, a world renowned photographer for professional photographs for the lithographed tin. Proudly Namibian, Ruheleben went on to win the Platinum award at the November 2011 Made in Namibia Expo held in Windhoek.

Treesleeper Camp

 

Welcome to Treesleeper Camp!

Your cultural experience in the African bush.

Treesleeper Camp is a beautiful, exclusive camp site in the bush nearby the village of Tsintsabis in Namibia, Africa. It is a community based and sustainable tourism project with a strong focus on the culture of the Bushmen (San) people, the first inhabitants of Southern Africa. In fact, the name ‘Treesleeper’ is a translation from ‘Hei//omn’, the local Bushmen tribe in the area and the traditional inhabitants of Etosha National Park and surroundings.

Treesleeper Camp is perfectly located nearby the world famous Etosha National Park and has, apart from great private camping accommodation, some very interesting activities to offer. You can come over to walk a bushwalk or a village tour with a professional local tour guide, or you can experience a traditional performance at a camp fire in the evening.

A cultural centre has also been set up on Treesleeper Camp. Here you can sit and relax and buy basic necessities (cool drinks, basic camping food, cold beer, etc.). Apart from that you can buy local souvenirs and traditional Bushmen artefacts are exhibited. If you are lucky you can spot some small game at the nearby waterhole.

You have not seen Namibia if you have not been to Treesleeper Camp!

 

Activities

When you visit Treesleeper Camp we can offer you three activities: A bushwalk, a village tour and a traditional performance. All activities are dependent on weather conditions because they are all taking place outside and therefore Treesleeper Camp retains the right to cancel activities if necessary.

We prefer if activities are booked in advance, since we can not guarantee them taking place otherwise. This counts especially for the traditional performance, because during school holidays many children of the children’s group leave Tsintsabis and the people of the elderly group are often out hunting or working on farms.

All children younger than 12 years can join accommodation and activities for free if guided by an adult. Obviously they will not be counted then for activities where a minimum of people is required.]

Treesleeper Camp Treesleeper Camp

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Bushwalk

If you do the bushwalk you will get a deeper understanding of the relationship that the Bushmen people used to have (and still have sometimes) with nature. You will learn about edible, poisonous and medicinal plants, see how they used to hunt animals, set up traps and made fire. The bushwalk is ideal for learning about the traditional way of life of the Bushmen. One guide takes you into the bush and explains about all these traditions.

2. Village tour

If you do our village tour you will get a better understanding of a culture in which traditions have now met the ‘modern world’. You will visit two very different current Bushmen villages and two families. Here you will see how they live nowadays and learn more about the contemporary situation. One guide will introduce you to families where you can ask questions and take photographs. This tour is about today’s ‘real life situation’ and does not exhibit Bushmen people in traditional clothes.

Apart from the fee for the village tour, you will also be asked kindly to bring a small appreciation for the families you will visit (this can be anything that you want to give, a T-shirt, a bag of sugar, some tea). We do this for entering their houses and gardens and for taking pictures. And this way these people get some extra support.

3. Traditional performance

A traditional performance by Bushmen is something magic. You can see traditional singing, dancing, healing and other ceremonies of the Bushmen, performed by children of the Tsintsabis Junior Secondary School or by an elderly traditional healing group. In case of the children you support the cultural activities of the school. The school has a fund for cultural activities and Treesleeper Camp supports that fund. You will get explanations and learn about the ritual dances and ceremonies and its’ meanings that are taking place around a camp fire.

Please realise that this activity must be booked in advance at least a week!

Accommodation

Treesleeper Camp is a camp site, but not just a camp site. It is an unforgettable experience of camping in the African bush. You can sleep up high between the trees! Choose at Treesleeper Camp what category of camp site you would like. We have made something for everybody who likes camping, in different price categories:

Category 1: Campsite with shared ablution but no tree deck.

Category 2: Campsite with shared ablution and a tree deck.

Category 3: Campsite with a personal ablution block and a tree deck.

And if you do not have your own camping gear, do not worry. We set up a tent for you, with a sleeping mattress, a sleeping bag, a pillow and we will give you some basic cooking equipment (a bundle of wood, some pots and pans and a gas stove). We can organise camping equipment for groups up to 5 people.

Obviously we provide wood for your braai (barbeque).
You can use the tree decks as a viewing platform or for placing your tent if you prefer to sleep on the deck. All camp sites are private areas with a braai, a tap, a picnic table (for 4 people), 2 solar lights and a bin. All ablutions have warm water provided by solar energy.

So in fact at Treesleeper Camp you can camp with lodge standards!

Background

Treesleeper Camp is a development project first of all. The basic idea is that tourism will bring certain profits to the community of Tsintsabis, the village nearby the camp site.

The Foundation for Sustainable Tourism in Namibia (FSTN) has been set up in order to realise the Treesleeper Camp project in Tsintsabis, Namibia. It is a Dutch legal body. The FSTN has 5 board members, them being:

Stasja Koot, M.A.: Chairman

Jan Peter Loovers, MA: Secretary

Ferry Bounin, M.A.: Treasurer

Jan Willem den Heeten, M.A. Board member

Dr. Walter van Beek (associate professor): Board member, advisor

With this project the FSTN and the Tsintsabis Trust aim to contribute the community of Tsintsabis as follows:

1. Extra income: in Tsintsabis there is a need for more sources of income besides agriculture. Tourism will stimulate the small scale economy;

2. Employment: many of the local youngsters think positively about tourism. A fair number of them speak English and is looking for work;

3. Extra focus on improvement of the position of women;

4. Increase of self-esteem of the people by a positive approach of their culture;

5. From an ethical point of view the project is very desirable: in the past the Hei//omn Bushmen were driven out of this area, including the Etosha National Park. By including them in profiting from the growing tourism in their region, they ‘get back a little of what was once taken from them’. Realise that Tsintsabis is a resettlement farm owned by the government of Namibia (the Ministry of Lands and Resettlement) and Hei//omn people are the only ethnical group in Namibia without land of their own;

6. Ecological awareness for tourists as well as inhabitants of Tsintsabis.
The building up of the camp site, the fundraising and the trainings have mostly been done by the FSTN during the years 2002 until 2007. The FSTN has also helped founding the local legal body, the Tsintsabis Trust, who are the legal owner of the project.

Currently the FSTN is still responsible for this website. Also, the chairman of the FSTN, Stasja Koot, still writes articles for the website www.hoever.nl, most of them based on the experiences of Treesleeper Camp.

Background: Treesleeper Camp

The word ‘Treesleeper’ has been derived from the biggest ethnic group in the village of Tsintsabis, the Hei//omn Bushmen. For the people who are not familiar with Khoisan (Bushmen/San and Nama) languages: The sign ‘//’ in the word Hei//omn is not a mistake. In the Khoisan language group four so-called ‘clicks’ are being used, them being: ‘//’, ‘!’, ‘/’ and ‘‡’.
When the Hei//omn still used to hunt, they sometimes fled into trees not to be caught by lions. Because of the patience lions have, the Hei//omn sometimes had to spend the night in the tree. Apart from this explanation, it also helped to sleep in the trees with a fire underneath against mosquito’s. ‘Hei//omn’ in fact means ‘Treesleepers’. Therefore the name Treesleeper symbolises the whole project: It respects the traditional culture of the Hei//omn while at the same time covering the tourists who are to visit the enterprise. This last reason is because the tourists have a chance to become a Treesleeper for a night by camping on a tree deck.

Treesleeper Camp is a form of what we call ‘community based sustainable tourism’. This means that the members of a local community are involved in all the aspects of carrying out the tourist activities, so they can have some income of their own. They should have a fair income for all their labour activities. As much as possible will be done by the local community, and the FSTN has always paid extra attention to ‘modern’ abilities (eg. working on a computer). By training and educating the local people, they will eventually be capable of improving their own situation independently and with responsibility.

Therefore, especially for this project a legal body (the Tsintsabis Trust, TT) has been founded in Tsintsabis. The TT is the owner of Treesleeper Camp. Everything related to the project will always be discussed with the TT (as representatives of the community). With them anything concerning the project is discussed.

Treesleeper does not aim to adjust attractions only to the needs of tourists. We want to give a realistic image of both the traditional and the contemporary way of life. Without bothering the tourists too much with ethical or moral aspects (they are on vacation, after all), we will give some attention to pointing out the contemporary situation of the (Hei//omn) Bushmen. Apart from that it is an environmental project, eg. as much as possible we work with solar energy. All warm water at the camp site is provided by solar geysers, every camp site has 2 solar lights and the electricity at the cultural centre is also provided by a solar panel.
