Baraka Goodhope Orphan’s Development (BAGODE) is a Civil Society Organization based in Mwanza city. Its head offices are at Isamilo ward, Selemani/Nera Street, opposite Isamilo SACCOS block B, house no 72. BAGODE is mainly engaged in facilitating the available opportunity to enhance children’s right within the society. It was officially registered in 2006 vide No. 14 NGO OO39.


BAGODE was launched in 2003 as a Community Based Organization by a small community group of 7 people with commitment and interest in children development. After realizing that the problem and issues of orphans and children living in hazardous life can be handled properly and managed by the community members. As a result, BAGODE decided to intervene and reveal the facts of the problem and issues of the orphans, street children and those living in hazardous life. These were practiced through research and advocacy. The concrete findings were disseminated to the local government authorities, ward development committees and village/street committees so as to get more inputs through workshops and public forums (Community members). After compiling the final reports we manage to draw the significant (true needs) of the orphans and children living in hazardous life, this includes poverty alleviation for families living with the OVC, support OVC on education accessibility and vocational trainings, this will gradually reduce the negative effects of poverty.
