The National Organisation For Women in Sport Physical Activity and Recreation (NOWSPAR) is a non-governmental organization that works to promote the equitable engagement of women in sport, physical activity and recreation in Zambia.

In partnership with our membership of schools, sports clubs, national sports associations and non-governmental organizations, NOWSPAR implements advocacy, capacity development, education, networking and research programmes.

Established in 2006, we operate under the overarching theme of 'Every Body Matters' which justifies our investment in women, girls, boys, men, people with disabilities, elite and recreational athletes.

Our Vision: Increased participation of girls and women in sport, physical activity and recreation in all communities and sports bodies in Zambia.

Our Mission: We advocate for, encourage and promote engagement of women and girls in all areas, levels and abilities in physical activity, sport and recreation for fun and excellence. We believe that all people should have equal access to information, education and healthy lifestyle choice.

Our Values: Equity, Respect, Excellence, Empowerment, Dignity and Fair Play.
