The Benefits of BRANNGO Membership
BRANNGO membership offers immediate access to a large network of individuals and organisations with a common interest in helping the people of Nepal. As such, it provides unrivalled opportunities to share information, discuss and resolve matters of common concern, and collaborate on planning and execution of plans in order to make best use of the resources available.
BRANNGO provides privileged access to information about other UK NGOs working in Nepal, which is shared through an interactive database that is being continuously updated. Conferences and workshops provide opportunities to hear from subject matter experts working in NGOs, those providing them with specialist support (e.g. fundraising), Nepal and UK Government Advisors and Diplomats on matters such as current policy and government plans, and others such as the Nepal Federation of NGOs (NFN) and the Association of INGOs in Nepal (AIN).
Communication and information exchange is the key success factor for BRANNGO. In addition to organising events, BRANNGO maintains a Facebook Group for online discussion of issues, publishes a newsletter and maintains this website. These channels for communicating general information are available to non-members, but the details which provide the real benefit - information about other NGOs and their activities; briefings; access to material from conferences and workshops - are only available to members of BRANNGO.
