Our Social Footprint

The Debmarine Namibia’s Social Responsibility Fund continues to make donations to various worthy causes, with a focus on education (science and technology), sustainable enterprise development and health. The Company continues to increase its procurement of goods and services in Namibia as part of its commitment to local economic development.

Debmarine Namibia awards full bursaries to deserving young Namibians on an annual basis for study in various fields. The bursary programme offers study opportunities in various areas depending on the Company’s needs, such as: Marine Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Metallurgy, Geology, Environmental Science, Surveying and Commercial Services related studies, amongst others.

Debmarine Namibia has a “Diamond Award for Science” bursary for science aspiring students and teachers. The main criterion is being a top Namibian student, interested in Science - when selecting from equally suitable candidates, we apply principles of AA and designated groups. The aim of this award is to enable high-potential Namibian students to live their personal dreams of becoming scientists and thereby make a meaningful contribution to Namibia’s long-term development in line with Vision 2030. This award is unique in that, upon completion, the recipient has no obligation to Debmarine Namibia and can work anywhere in Namibia.

The Debmarine –Namdeb Foundation is the joint socio-economic development vehicle of Debmarine Namibia and Namdeb Diamond Corporation (Pty) Ltd which endeavours to leave a lasting diamond legacy in Namibia through partnering with local communities on sustainable projects and initiatives. The Foundation operates offices in Windhoek and Oranjemund.
