Welcome to the r0g_agency

Dedicated to peacebuilding, technical innovations, and access to knowledge for all. 

r0g_open_culture

The r0g _agency (pronounced: rogue) is a Berlin-based nonprofit dedicated to partnering with local grassroots organizations and governments to support open knowledge, open technology, and peacebuilding efforts in the Global South, particularly those regions undergoing rapid and fundamental transformation, in order to support the development of healthy, peaceful societies.

The word ‘open’ is borrowed from the tech world and is used to describe something (texts, software, technology, information) that is accessible by the general public, and is free to be used and redistributed without legal or technological restrictions, removing barriers that might otherwise stand between individuals and the information they need.

Open Technology

We develop open source software, open standards, and open hardware and make these readily accessible, because we believe that Open Tech plays an important role in fostering the peacebuilding process, innovation, and self-reliance.

Open Knowledge

Knowledge empowers people and communities by acting as the great equalizer. We create learning materials, field guides, documents, and posters that can be freely accessed, downloaded, used, and disseminated.

Peacebuilding

Peacebuilding is an intervention that aims to prevent or counter violent conflict through activities that address root causes of violence and foster peaceful conflict resolutions, with the goal of creating a more stable social and political environment.

r0g_locations

The r0g_agency works with grassroots, governmental, and international organizations – often to bridge gaps between policy and tangible action on the ground.

We collaborate with communities in the equatorial regions of Africa and Southeast Asia.

Currently we are working primarily with communities and organizations in the Republic of South Sudan, Uganda, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia, The Gambia and Pakistan.
