Introduction Letter


Bado Mapambano was established in 2014 to facilitate grassroots civic engagement programming. The goal is to improve the democratic and economic health of African villages working in partnership with grassroots volunteers. We operate as an independent trust in strategic partnership with CV GROUP (a community volunteer solutions consultancy, and a multisectoral community social investment consortia whose goal is to rebuild village economies), advisory of national and devolved Programs Advisory Committees, resourcing of national and devolved Resource Mobilization Committees with policy guidance from a Board of Trustees. The trust envisions Africa, where every grass-root community enjoys holistic civic engagement opportunities. Our Mission is to transform Africa’s socio-economic challenges into holistic civic engagement opportunities for ALL through volunteer organizing, civic engagement campaigns, peoples and leaders conventions, and institutionalizing good governance.

Across the country, our volunteers are organizing for inclusive civic engagements and economic opportunities for all. Locally, grassroots action is focused on identifying, recruiting, subscribing, training, and empowering volunteers to work together to build village voices—structured groups of 15-30 volunteers—to take on civic engagement and community enterprise roles.
