Interns and Volunteers

Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF) accepts interns from tertiary institutions in Namibia and abroad, as well as experienced volunteers.

 

An internship with the NNF is aimed at giving the intern experience working in an office environment of an NGO (non-government organization), assisting with specific project work, completing research projects associated with implemented projects, or working closely with the finance team or human resources and operations. Experienced volunteers are normally tasked with improving or developing systems or organizational behaviors. Volunteers usually work closely with a local understudy in the organization (s) to help build capacity.

 

Namibian interns/volunteers spend between three to six months with us, while international interns/volunteers normally only stay for up to three months, although longer stays may be possible. Additionally, it may be possible for some work to be carried out remotely. It is the policy of the NNF to offer Namibian interns a small monthly stipend.

 

International interns/volunteers accepted by the NNF have to be self-sustained and self-funded i.e. need to be able to cover all their travel expenses to and from Namibia; the cost of study visa; food and accommodation; except for travel to the field.  To apply for an internship position, please respond to an advertised vacancy by sending your CV and a covering letter explaining why you're interested in the role and including two contactable references to the email address supplied in the advert. Clearly indicate the role you are applying for in the subject line of the email. 

 

Please note that applications can only be accepted if submitted in response to an advertised intern position at the NNF. See below for current intern positions.

Bush encroachment has over the years degraded close to 30% of Namibia's land area and has led to a loss of ecosystem service values. While this is a natural trend in savannah ecosystems, mostly counterbalanced in natural conditions by wildfires and grazing by local fauna, it has accelerated since the second half of the 20th century due to anthropogenic factors. To respond to this challenge, NamPower in collaboration with the Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF), Namibian Biomass Industry Group (N-BIG), NITIDAE, and Innovation Energie Dévelopement (IED) are developing a 40MW power station, fuelled by an FSC-certified wood chip supply chain from the harvested bush. The project will primarily focus on generating power through sustainable bush-thinning practices, employment creation, and community engagement.

To ensure the project's alignment with the principles of gender equality and social inclusion, comprehensive gender analysis and Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) Action Plan are required for all the project components as well as at the Otjikoto Biomass Power Station (OBPS) operations. The key objectives of this consultancy are therefore to:

  1. Conduct a desktop gender analysis of the Otjikoto Bush to Biomass Power Station Project, identifying gender-specific gaps and opportunities in project activities.
  2. Develop a comprehensive Gender and Social Inclusion Action Plan to guide the integration of gender-responsive and socially inclusive approaches throughout the project life cycle.

The KAZA region in Southern Africa suffers from the intertwined issues of poverty (most live below the poverty line), the increasing impacts of climate change (prolonged and frequent droughts), natural habitat conversion and land degradation. The resilience of ecosystems is negatively impacted as are the livelihoods and food security of rural communities. Eighty percent of the people are heavily dependent upon natural resources and live largely from subsistence agriculture (shifting cultivation).

WWF Germany is looking for qualified individuals or firms to plan and conduct the End of Project Evaluation for the BMZ funded project “Global Programme Food Security and Habitat Protection in the KAZA”. This project is also called the KAZA ARISE Project.
