RAISING STANDARDS OF EDUCATION

boNGO is a non-profit non-governmental organization in Malawi, South-East Africa, established with the aim of raising the standards of education in the country. boNGO works within:

 

1. Early Childhood Education

Raising the quality of early childhood education through Model Childcare Centers.

 

2. Primary School Education

Improving the learning environments in primary schools through syllabus-related paintings on classroom walls (project Happy Classrooms).

 

3. Youth and Adult Education

Producing and spreading awareness-raising films for both African and non-African audiences (film B'ella and film Zione); and working with Youth Clubs at the Model Childcare Centers.

 

 

boNGO's VISION:

Malawian children and youths who are capable of logical thinking and independent reasoning with a good foundation of knowledge which allows for healthy development of the nation.

 

boNGO's MISSION:

To develop and implement innovative and low cost educational concepts that can be replicated in various communities across the world in order to raise the standards of education.

 

 

boNGO stands for “based on Need-driven Grassroots Ownership” - an acronym expressing the importance of a self-help approach by the beneficiaries and other people at the grassroots which boNGO considers a fundamental condition for sustainable development.

 

Since 2009 boNGO has also been active in the Czech Republic and Switzerland, home countries of two boNGO directors, where it works in the field of development education and raises funds for projects in Malawi.

 

boNGO Team – the organization was founded by its three directors in 2007 after their practical experience from developing the first Model Childcare Center Umodzi-Mbame in the South of Malawi.

One of the Czech banks is behind the project and wants to contribute money to boNGO based on how much the film will be viewed. In this phase of the project you can watch the film here.
