Mission Statement
CANGO provides capacity building, consultancy, training and research services to organisations involved in development. Our goal is to improve performance of local government and civil society organisations (especially of youth and women) by strengthening management and organizational effectivenees. To this end CANGO implements capacity building programmes aiming at fostering civic participation in decision-making, improving governance quality, promoting democracy and building healthy communities. We value participation and the bottom up empowerment; we respect the dignity and diversity of each person; professionalism and accountability are important to us; we appreciate partnerships and sharing of experience.
Short Description

CANGO basically focuses on development projects. This is mainly done through Capacity Building programmes that consist in trainings, technical assistance and consultancy services for the non profit sector that includes civic society organisations and local government administration. Albeit a national organisation, our motto is to first serve communities in remote areas, giving priority to the most poor ones. No wonder then Mirdita District (one municipality: Rrëshen and five communes: Fan, Orosh, Kaçinar, Selitë and Kthellë), being one of the most-in-need areas in Albania, has been the focus of CANGO’s work in the first 3 years of its activity. CANGO has developed and published profiles and strategic development plans, both in Albanian and English, for each of these six administrative units.

Also, CANGO has been hired by international organizations such as Save the Children, World Vision, UNICEF, and UNIFEM to conduct trainings, assessments, and other-capacity building services.
