BOND (British Overseas NGOs for Development) is the United Kingdom''s broadest network of voluntary organisations working in international development (often called non-governmental organisations, or NGOs).
BOND was founded in June 1993, on the initiative of 61 NGOs, and now has over 340 members.
It is officially recognised by the UK Government''s Department for International Development (DFID).
BOND aims to improve the UK''s contribution to international development by promoting the exchange of experience, ideas and information amongst BOND members between networks of NGOs in the UK and internationally, with the UK Government, and between BOND members and other UK bodies with an interest in international development.
To support this work, BOND manages training, advocacy and information services.
BOND''s work is funded by member subscriptions, income generation, and grants from DFID, the European Union and the Big Lottery Fund.
BOND is the UK membership body for non-governmental organisations working in the international development sector.
We promote the exchange of experience, ideas and information and, as the UK''s broadest network of international development organisations, provide our members with a powerful collective voice for change.
Together we are working towards a shared vision of the future, underpinned by a set of values that inspire our work and mission
