September 2016:

This is our new blog of the TUCSIN Tsumkwe Lodge (TTL).

We present news about steps of progress as well as background information.

In March the educationalist Bruce Parcher, well experienced and acknowledged in the teaching field, became head of the TUCSIN Tsumkwe Training Program. He immediately started a Hospitality Training Program addressing the staff at the Lodge. From 2017 onwards also participants from outside will take part.

In July repair work has been started to improve the cabins one by one as well as the construction of a new, fully-equipped training kitchen. This work is combined with an Apprenticeship Training Program in in construction work. Visitors will hardly be disturbed by these activities.

In August Bruce Parcher held a workshop for local San-teachers giving classes within the new Cultural Class Program from September onwards.

13th – 16th of September: A workshop in Tsumkwe deals with the interaction of national and international genetics researchers with regard to the local population. The project will be co-ordinated on behalf of SASI (South African San Institute).
