Full Text: Sister Namibia is a feminist organisation based in Windhoek, Namibia.

Our vision is a society that recognises, protects and celebrates the full personhood of all women and girls including respect for our dignity, diversity, sexual choices and bodily integrity.

We aim to inspire and equip women to make free choices and act as agents of change in our relationships, our communities and ourselves. We are dedicated to developing a new feminist politics and consciousness. We work for transformation through education, information, collective action, and celebration.

Our current activities include publishing Sister Namibia magazine, developing a Young Feminists Programme, and campaigning for women's and girls' sexual and reproductive health and rights through the Claiming our Sexual Citizenship Campaign.

We house a resource centre with materials on feminisms and gender issues in our Windhoek office, and conduct outreach activities on women's rights in Northern Namibia from our satellite office in Ongwediva. Our work is sponsored by Oxfam Canada, the Heinrich Boll Foundation, OSISA, Fahamu/Sigrid Rausing Trust, Olof Palme International Center, the Royal Netherlands Embassy, HIVOS, and PEPFAR. Board of Trustees: Leigh-Anne Agnew (chairperson), Tamsin Bowra, Rudolf Gawaseb, Eveline January, Nicky Marais, Fransina Mutumbulwa, Immaculate Sechogele
