Organization Description
The Ngamiland Council of Non-Governmental Organizations (NCONGO) was established in 2008 and serves as the umbrella body of Ngamiland Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in matters related to sustainable social and economic development. This includes HIV and AIDS activities and organizations, but is not exclusively limited to this issue. NCONGO covers the Ngami and Okavango sub-districts within the Northwest District and the Chobe district of Botswana.

This volunteer directed organization was set up to coordinate the efforts and raise the profile of the needs of NGOs in Ngamiland, to assist in capacity building of member organizations and to facilitate networking and communication within the region.

As part of its capacity-building mandate, NCONGO offers workshops covering a wide range of topics which arise from the needs of the members.

In order to co-ordinate the efforts of the regions NGOs, NCONGO collects data from its member organizations and reports its findings to the Botswana Government through the DMSAC. Based on these findings, NCONGO makes recommendations to the Government of Botswana and other NGOs on policies, programs and plans.

The Botswana Policy for NGOs encourages NGOs to work closely with the government to effectively deliver services to the citizens of Botswana. This is precisely the role NCONGO plays.

In 2010, the NCONGO Resource Centre opened to provide support for our members. The resource centre is the hub for networking and capacity building in the region.
