There are millions of not-for-profit and civil society organizations in the world playing a vital role in the socio-economic development of diverse communities living in difficult conditions.

With the ongoing health crisis, local NGOs have played a huge role in helping the marginalized and the vulnerable communities cope with Covid-19. From raising awareness about the virus, providing aid and relief package to working relentlessly to connect, empower and enhance lives, NGOs have had to resort to use of digital tools amid the pandemic.

However, various studies and reports have time and again indicated that most of the grassroots organizations struggle due to lack of funds, human resources, and perseverance.

The eNGO Challenge under the umbrella of Digital Empowerment Foundation’s eNGO Programme was put into conception with an objective to recognize and facilitate the grassroots organizations doing exceptional work using Digital Tools. The eNGO Challenge is now seven years old and recognises best practices across South Asia.

Today, it strives to build and strengthen grassroots not-for-profit organizations and help them to become a mainstream sustainable entity with the help of new age tools like digital, good governance, transparent management and affective outreach.

This year, rising to the challenge of the Covid-19 healthcare crisis, the 7th edition of the eNGO Challenge will be held online.

It aims to recognize, facilitate and award organizations that have done some exceptional work with communities and subjects using any kind of new age tools.
