Promoting Social Development: Building a professional social work association in Namibia

Namibia's government has established a social welfare system with a social development emphasis. This study examines the role of the National Association of Social Workers in promoting social development and cohesion among social workers in Namibia. Their findings indicate that professional associations can play an important role not only in marketing social work and offering continuous professional development education, but also can help in promoting social development in Africa.
