Anita worked as a volunteer herself and it was a life-chasing experience for here. After working as a volunteer she founded and established a sustainable NGO by herself in Namibia. With the experience of being a volunteer and creating her own Project as a foreigner she had the desire of creating an environment where volunteers can truly connect with the projects and the people they are working with. She continuous to see the need in Namibia, which initially drove her to continue working towards improvement within the country.
In 2011, Anita Nangombe founded Butterfly – People support people. Butterfly is a non-profit organisation that supports projects in developing countries. With Butterfly, she gave herself and people, especially those in Austria, the possibility to support a project while knowing where all the money is going. Until now, she has been active and has been raising funds for different projects. Once a year, Anita travels to Europe and holds talks in schools and universities about Butterfly. Because of her charity work, she was nominated in 2011 for the first time as “Steirerin des Tages” and for the “Woman of the Year 2011” in the Women’s Magazine. In 2014, she was chosen out of 4000 people to be nominated for the “Best Humanity Work of the Year”, and was invited to the Gala of the Year from the Kleine Zeitung.
