15.10.2010 Promo and fundraising music video on YOUTUBE

One year ago boNGO’s Managing Director Tereza Mirovicova appeared in a music video of a famous Malawian artist Lucius Banda. The clip became a part of a short movie serving as a unique tool to promote boNGO and raise finances for its development programs in 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.
