Tsintsabis Orange Tree Project 2014

24th Jan 2014

The Hatters Explorer Scout Unit will be returning to Namibia this year to continue their project for the San Bush people in the Tsintsabis area. The San people have suffered much persecution from early colonisation right through to the current day having been pushed off their lands. The community at Tsintsabis have almost nothing with nearly total unemployment and little hope. In 2011 The Hatters inaugurated an orange tree plantation. A diesel pump was installed on a government bore hole, land cleared and fenced, irrigation put in and trees planted. On our return this year we will continue with this project increasing the irrigation and planting more trees. As we have 60 people going we will also look to start a secondary project for the future and our continuing support for these people.

Its a good idea to give the poorest people something.
