What is boNGO?

The name 'boNGO' is an abbreviation for “based oNeed-driven Grassroots Ownership“, which describes the approach to development used by boNGO – cultivating development efforts of communities that run their own projects and need more additional knowledge, support or finances.



Organization boNGO

boNGO Worldwide (referred to as boNGO) is a non-profit non-governmental organization working within education and community development in Malawi, southeast Africa. boNGO is registered with CONGOMA (Council of Non-Governmental organization in Malawi) and has two sister organizations in Europe – boNGO Czech Republic and boNGO Switzerland.



How boNGO started

boNGO was founded by four people from Malawi, the Czech Republic, Switzerland and USA. Since 2005, they have lived and worked in Juma village (south Malawi) and initiated development of the Model Childcare Center Umodzi-Mbame.


The challenges met, together with a critical insight into other development projects in the area, allowed them to form their own understanding and approach to development work. Based on this experience in 2007 they founded an organization called 'boNGO'.
