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.




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.



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.


22.01.2018 Happy 2018 to boNGO and all of you!

boNGO is very happy and grateful as we are starting the New Year with funding from several organisations.

"Stadt Frauenfeld" (town of Frauenfeld) in Switzerland donated CHF 8000. "Schuelerrat der PMS Kreuzlingen" (Students Council of the Teacher Training College Kreuzlingen} in Switzerland donated CHF 4300. "boNGO Switzerland" through individual donations and membership contributions donated CHF 7500. These funds will be used to support the daily operations (teachers' allowances and materials) and  further developments (trainings and maintenance) of boNGO's two Model Childcare Centres - Umodzi-Mbame and Mango.

boNGO Czech Republic contributed funds received from individual donations and James Cook Languages. These funds will be used for the Happy Classrooms project.

03.10.2017 Rotary Club supports 100 Happy Classrooms

Thanks to the Rotary Club Ostrava International (in the Czech Republic) and the Rotary Club of Limbe (in Malawi) 100 Happy Classrooms are being painted in rural Chiradzulu, southern Malawi. The painting started in July and will be finished in October 2017. Once the initial training of the teachers on how to use the painted walls during lessons is done (Oct-Nov2017), and a few months of practical experience is over, we are going to hold an IDEA EXCHANGE CONFERENCE. This conference is a first one of its kind in Malawi and  is intended for all teachers participating in our project. The best practices shared at the conference will be selected and organised into a HAPPY CLASSROOMS TEACHERS’ MANUAL, which will be from that time on distributed to all Happy Classrooms across Malawi. Manual distribution is planned for the second quarter of 2018. It is the combination of painted classrooms, the Conference, and the TEACHERS’ MANUAL distribution, that make our project unique and sustainable. Pictures on boNGO Worldwide Facebook.
