Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

The DAVIN SPORT TRUST’s philosophy is focused on the development of a select cadre of high performance individuals who, in themselves, are role models who inspire others and who will support each other in the future by giving back to others. We seek to 'raising the ceiling' for talented young Namibian sporting talent by giving them the opportunity to excel in international competitions and to live their dreams. Business organizations and sporting teams have long recognized the importance of nurturing top talent. They believe in the idea of a 'tipping point': a small, but vital minority of top performers who can create positive change. While financial assistance to compete internationally is at the heart of DAVIN SPORT TRUST and is indeed where it started, the support the beneficiaries receive is

  • Holistic – all the activities necessary to develop a well-rounded, high performance individual are offered. In general terms, they are made to feel part of a special community through regular interaction with other DAVIN SPORT TRUST members and sport stars. Each student will receive career advice and work experience. Travel bursaries and international placements at universities are also offered.
  • Personal – each beneficiary receives one-on-one mentoring, is known personally as an individual by at least one of the trustees at the DAVIN SPORT TRUST and their individual results and needs are therefore carefully and continually reviewed
  • Flexible – the support each BENEFICIARY receives has to be tailored to their individual needs e.g. in the early stages, some may need extra help with coaching, skills, travel arrangements, preparation etc
  • Values – at the heart of the DAVIN SPORT TRUST is a set of values – a meaningful belief, mission, and philosophy – that both the TRUSEES and BENEFICIARIES adhere to.

Live your Dream!
