Gam was elephant land, wilderness, with the only inhabitants being small groups of San hunters roaming wide valleys.
In 1992, the first groups of Herero pastoralists came from Botswana and now there is an outpost village with some 6000 people and a school with 800 learners.
Claudous Kandjou is managing the regular contact with the church we planted there, where we put up a roof in 2011 and enrolled the leaders in extension Bible training. He travels the 450 km gravel road to Gam in his dilapidated little Nissan, most of the time a lonely road with little help in case of trouble.
