Ms. Edith Mbanga of the Shack Dwellers Federation for Namibia is personally awarded for her outstanding efforts to improve land access and housing for the poor. Her work has been of special benefit to women living in poverty. Over many years, since the early 1990s she has helped set up various savings and support groups, which she helped into a national network under the Federation. Through her dedication, it is today the largest memberdriven organization in the country. Thanks to her drive and energy, today there are over 600 savings groups in Namibia with an estimated 20 members, 65 per cent of whom are women. The Federation has helped more than 4,000 poor households secure land, more than 2,000 build new homes.
