1 product = 1€ donation

The village community of Sivara is located in the north of Namibia, close to the border with Angola. The women of the village harvest the Kalahari melons here, which are valuable for PHYSTINE – formerly collected in the wild, today on a field leased for PHYSTINE – and prepare the wild watermelon for further processing.

The gentle cold pressing of the Kalahari melon seeds is carried out by Kenny in a small production hall built only a few years ago. All that remains of the melon and the pressed seeds are further processed in various products and foodstuffs.

Olli Rust, the founder of Namib Desert Jojoba and the Jojoba for Namibia Trust, ensures both quality according to European standards in all production processes and the payment of fair wages for all involved.

With the fundraising campaign “1 product = 1€ donation” we would like to say “THANK YOU” for the great cooperation with Olli & his team in Sivara and offer the possibility for a further expansion & securing of jobs in Namibia.
