Amarok Motor Club reaches out to vulnerable

Nothing brings a bunch of like-minded people together like engines, wheels and performance.

The Amarok Namibia Motor Club (ANMC) consists of Amarok owners with a passion for this VW brand, and has branches in all 14 regions of the country.

ANMC vice chairperson Klaivert Mwandingi says the club this past weekend got together at Langstrand, and provided some members with a short induction course on how to master dune driving.

The course started off with a short theoretical session about the dangers of approaching a dune the wrong way, since they keep changing due to cold Atlantic winds and other elements.

“It was actually easy as the Amarok is doing everything with its various off-road settings,” one of the members said afterwards.

Mwandingi says the dune driving experience is a bit like skydiving as the adrenaline rush of ‘jumping’ a dune is next to none.

“They did not know much about the Amarok, and we have discovered what the Amarok really could do on the dunes. We already know what this car can do on tarred roads,” he says.

ANMC members also put their hands deep in their pockets to reach out to orphans and vulnerable children of Namibia to assist them with stationery, clothes and other essentials.

They also assist and guide pupils regarding possible career paths.

Mwandingi says the club’s members include teachers, police officers, the logistic sector, and sales people.

He thanks both Autohaus Windhoek and Swakopmund for supporting the club as this empowers them to reach out to the vulnerable across Namibia.

The club consists of more than 150 members across Namibia.
