NINGO Values


NINGO members are committed to conform to the Constitution, laws and regulations of Rwanda and to support the development objectives of the Rwandan Government.  Notwithstanding this commitment, NINGO will strive to maintain its autonomy as a Network, formulating its own policies and strategies and advocating for change, with government, donors and other ‘stakeholders’, as and when we believe it necessary.  Further, our desire is that the thousands of Rwandans who are gainfully employed by INGO’s are positive promoters and advocates for the continuing development of Rwanda.

NINGO and its members stand committed to make every effort to uphold these values in all circumstances.
