NGO Mondo is an Estonian civil society organization established in 2007. Our organization works in three different fields: development cooperation, humanitarian aid and global citizenship education, with the main activities focused on improving health, education, and livelihood for the most vulnerable communities in the world. 

In development cooperation we focus on education and the economic empowerment of women and disabled people. In humanitarian aid we help in reconstruction work in crisis zones, support displaced communities, and take initiative in disaster risk reduction. In Estonia, we educate the public, school teachers and pupils about global issues by providing materials, arranging school visits, and holding public campaigns.

In addition to that, we deploy expert volunteers in development projects and promote social entrepreneurship and responsible consumption in order to support our main goals.  Mondo is a project-based organization with about 20 employees in Estonia and at least one local partner in each of our target countries.

WE BELIEVE that it’s possible to create a stable and caring world, where everyone has the right to human decency. We believe that direct collaboration and solidarity with communities in developing countries is the key to poverty relief and improved well-being.

WE STAND for international humanitarian principles, democratic values, protection of human rights, human decency and social equality.
WE HELP individuals in crisis situations and create long-lasting and innovative solutions in collaboration with communities in need in order to ensure their independency.
WE SHARE knowledge through global citizenship education. We spread awareness about the ways in which global problems affect the everyday life of individuals, communities and society and how each one of us can influence the world. We offer possible solutions and engage expert volunteers in our activities in partner countries.
