Our Namibia Office

The Hanns Seidel Foundation Namibia (HSF) is a German non-profit organisation. Our Namibian office dates back to 1978 and is located in Windhoek. In 1991 HSF started working directly in Johannesburg, South Africa to support the shift to an all-inclusive, non-racial democratic society in all of Southern Africa. 

The Hanns Seidel Foundation is supporting the Namibian government to consolidate democratic values, economic advancement, accountability, transparency and environmental awareness as part of the Namibian development plan.

Our work is largely funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
