About Fabo Our story

Our story

Established in 2020, we are a growing community of 26 member organisations and over 15,000 learners.

Fabo is a member-driven learning community for non-governmental organisations.

We are brought together by a shared passion and belief in learning as an empowering vehicle for change. For this reason, our mission is to build bridges between civil society and beyond. We operate with the firm belief that knowledge is not exclusive and the opportunity to learn and create is a right everyone should have. By learning, creating and sharing together, we can all become empowered agents of change, individuals and organisations alike. We are member-driven because we believe in the power of the collective.

We want to raise the bar, and we invite you to join us.
