What we do

The Co-ordinating Assembly of Non-Governmental Organisations (CANGO) in Swaziland was established in 1983.

It was set initially as a network for NGOs working in primary health care.

After CANGO’s mandate broadened in 1987, we have grown to become the national umbrella body for all non-governmental organisations in the country.

We coordinate the NGO sector and build the capacity of our member organisations — so they to fulfil their mandates. We also aim to influence national and international policies by advocating for measures that we think we help the country.

In short, CANGO co-ordinates the Swazi NGO sector, helps to build the capacity of the sector, and campaigns and advocates for meaningful social change.


An empowered and vibrant civil society for social justice
