Sister Namibia is a feminist and women’s rights organisation located in Windhoek, Namibia. Since our establishment in 1989 we have been a constant voice for women and women’s equality throughout the lifespan of independent Namibia.
Our aim is to be and remain a feminist voice that fosters equality, human dignity and women’s agency. Sister Namibia has been one, if not the, non-governmental organisation dealing with gender equality issues in Namibia. In a country with a tiny population of just over 2 million people, Namibia still has a long way to go when it comes to women and children’s rights and Sister Namibia is at the forefront of that fight appealing to the public, government and other organizations to lend their support.
We aim to achieve a society that challenges all forms of discrimination and champions fair and inclusive dialogue, critique and response current issues. We aim to inspire and equip women to make free choices and act as agents of change in our relationships, our communities and as agents of change. We are dedicated to developing a new feminist politics and consciousness. We work for transformation through education, information, collective action, and celebration.
