The Namibia Planned Parenthood Association (NAPPA) is a volunteer movement founded with the intention to advance sexual reproductive health services and needs of adolescents and young people in Namibia. NAPPA was founded in 1996 by courageous Mothers and Fathers of our Liberation Struggle. Some of the co-founders of NAPPA are Adv. Bience Gawanas and Hon. Nadi-Ndaitwah who is the President Emeritus of NAPPA.
Volunteer Member at NAPPA is person who is a member of the Association who offers his/her service(s), time and or resources to the Association free of charge. A volunteer is someone who wants to contribute to the advancement of the efforts of NAPPA in advancing the sexual and reproductive health programs for adolescents and youth in Namibia. A volunteer is a person who is committed to her/his work with the intention of bettering the lives of others.
NAPPA volunteers leads a locally owned, globally connected non-governmental organisation that provides SRH services to all and this is based on our core values of Quality, Accountability, Responsibility, confidentiality, Inclusion and volunteerism. NAPPA is a member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). IPPF is a volunteer movement which relies on the strength of volunteerism to make meaningful contribution to its communities. NAPPA’s volunteerism is moulded according to the ethos and models of IPPF’s volunteerism.
IPPF is a global associative movement which was founded on volunteerism and commitment of teenagers, youth, men and women of conviction vis-à-vis SRHR. This volunteerism continues to be a major source of the Federation’s strength and influence.
A volunteer in NAPPA shares the Association’s mission, vision and values and offers his or her time, knowledge, skills and experience free of charge to a Member Association.
The amount of time that volunteers invest in the work of NAPPA depends upon the role they undertake and the needs of the Association. Each volunteer has a part to play no matter how big or small.
The elected volunteers in governing bodies provide leadership at all levels of the Association in partnership with management.
Volunteers could offer various services based on their availabilities and skills sets. These could vary from offering services and time in the areas of Finance, Medical, Programming, Resource Mobilization etc. Some of the current volunteers offer free community services like medical doctors who have made arrangements to visit the Youth Friendly Clinics and offer such services. Other professionals could volunteer to offer community services in the form of legal, finance, resource mobilization, architectural and surveying services etc.
