The MYD Show – We Are Because of One Another with Rosa Namises

Rosa Namises is a Namibian politician and human-rights activist who has made many self-less contributions towards the lives of Namibians, both young and old.

“You must do the things where nobody sees you. There you must do good. It will come out. That will make your footprint.”

Rosa is a prominent voice on gender issues, human-rights violations, and violence against women and children in Namibia. She played a heroic role in the libera­tion struggle of Namibia, is the director of Woman Solidarity Namibia and started the Dolam Residential Child Care centre, a day-care centre for vulnerable children amongst many other self-less acts of service to others. This is her story…

“I think as Namibians we have very challenging times where as the individual we need to create our own script. How do I want to live? How do I want to contribute?”


In this MYD show podcast we find out:

  • Rosa’s story of how she realised that she wanted to be a voice for human rights
  • The days of the struggle for liberation, being arrested and enduring torture and how Rosa overcame this
