Guinea: FONGDD

The Forum of NGOs for Sustainable Development (FONGDD) is a platform of dialogue gathering national and international NGOs in Guinea.

FONGDD was established in February 1996 in an effort to prevent the lack of dialogue between NGOs implementing activities in the Republic of Guinea, to synergize their actions and messages in a space of dialogue and exchange, and to influence public decision making processes through a collective position towards current issues and challenges.
The Forum includes 69 members: on the one hand national and international NGOs and on the other an action group of 33 women NGOs.

MISSION

The FONGDD mission consists in:
- Having the participating NGOs contribute through a dynamic and qualitative dialogue to the development process of Guinea;
- Facilitate a real spirit of complementarity and partnership between the NGOs involved, and have them as a synergizing catalyst develop and implement joint programmes which may include integrated projects and at the same time their own specific programmes and projects

OBJECTIVES

- Raising the information level of NGOs about development issues, challenges and commitments at global, regional, and local levels;
- Improve NGOs capacities to collect data and information suitable for situation analysis, to design development methodologies and information tools;
- Materialize a spirit of partnership between national and international NGOs as far as development issues are concerned;
- Capitalize on NGO experiences and successes in development activities;
- NGO capacity building to mobilize and manage internal and external resources;
