A partner for sustainable urban development
DW has been operating in Namibia since 2016 and was registered in Zambia as an NGO in 2022.
The aim in Zambia is to support national development goals on housing, urban infrastructure and early childhood development (ECD).
Who we are
We are a young and dynamic not-for-profit organisation with offices in Namibia, Zambia and Switzerland. Our focus is on sustainable urban development and urban poverty reduction.
Governance & Accountability
All three DW organisations are registered in their respective countries as not-for-profit organisations, constituting a network of DW entities. Dr. Beat Weber is the Executive Director of DW Switzerland, DW Namibia and DW Zambia.
Social Enterprise Approach
Scale and sustainability are fundamentally important indicators of success for our programmes. However, achieving both with donor funding alone is not possible due to the fluctuating availability and size of donor funds.
