We are 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, specifically those regions undergoing rapid and fundamental transformation. We believe that open knowledge has the potential to create healthy, open 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.
where we work
r0g_agency works with both grass-roots as well as with governmental and international organisations – often with an interest to bridge gaps between policy and real action on the ground.
We are engaged with communities in the equatorial regions of Africa and South East Asia.
Currently we are working primarily with communities and organisations in the Republic of South Sudan, Uganda, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia and Pakistan.
Support us in building strong, peaceful societies
