At UNAM Foundation, we believe that by implementing quality projects, we can make a significant impact on some of the challenges facing society. Issues such as poverty and inequality, climate change, community involvement, gender violence and education, require targeted interventions guided by innovative insights. As the national University in Namibia, it is our role to address these in a purposeful way, in order to make a tangible difference.
The UNAM Foundation is the fundraising arm of the University of Namibia, making it the entry port for all gifts, donations, sponsorships and other supports to the University. We remain committed to the advancement of research and other academic activities. However, the challenge remains that everything we need requires funding. Gifts from Alumni and Friends of the University are key in making up the critical shortfall in state funding that UNAM faces. Therefore, we cannot accomplish our fundraising goals without your support.
Students are our primary assets. It is our obligation to educate them to become role models in the society we serve. Hence, their affiliation to UNAM Foundation through the Alumni Association is key. For further development of our University, Alumni contribution and involvement is the ladder to the future.
The UNAM Foundation cannot work in isolation and relies heavily on the participation and contribution of faculties and various departments. While we share a common purpose for making UNAM the institution that inspires minds and shapes the future, we should emphasize that charity begins at home. As the community of our own institution, it is highly recommendable to start giving and supporting UNAM Foundation in all its endeavors, whether financial or linking it to potential friends.
