*'''November 2012: GloboSol annual report: Namibia - Nailoke’s Solar House''' [[Nailoke Niingungo]] is a woman who puts considerable effort into improving living conditions and protecting the environment in the area where she lives in [[Namibia]]. Her means to do that is to promote solar ovens by partnering with [[GloboSol]]. To make people aware of solar cooking, she bakes bread on a daily basis and roasts peanuts, which are then sold and providing a modest income. Currently, the solar ovens are built at two different locations, a situation which is working, but needs to be improved. Likewise, the sales of the solar ovens have not yet met their expectations of the potential market.

*'''September 2011:''' The [[Namib Desert Environmental Education Trust]] (NaDEET), a non-profit Namibian trust geared towards protecting Namibia’s natural environment through educating citizens how to live sustainably, has to date donated about 70 solar cookers to almost 150 people in the South. In 2010 NaDEET expanded its youth orientated programmes to include adults, in order to expand knowledge about solar cooking and related issues, such as climate change. A survey done prior to the training found that 57 per cent of the adults did not know about climate change. Viktoria Keding, director of NaDEET, explained there is a misperception that children are the primary target, whereas adults are just as eager to learn and adapt, especially when the benefits are clear.
