We want Montenegrin communities to thrive
Paradigma NGO is a spin-off organization consisting of Meanderbug team members. While our ethos celebrates sustainable endeavors like our rural tourism social enterprise meanderbug.com, we find that there are some challenges that require a one-time NGO approach to tackle some specific challenges. We formed Paradigma NGO in 2018 to aid in rural travel development. With the outbreak of the COVID pandemic, we have turned attention to helping Montenegrin communities during this difficult season.
Our overarching vision is to empower local communities by providing them knowledge, resources, innovations, and healthy collaboration.
Paradigma NGO is about a network established over years of cultivating relationships and trust. The number of people we call upon to give feedback, lend a hand, or carry part of a project forward are too many to mention.
However, some of our key members include:
Our resident visionary and guy who is trying to understand the local and global reality while exploring what if…
Our guy who is always ready to find a way to do something good and is most happy if it includes talking and working with others…
Our team-builder, encourager, and most compassionate team member.
Our financial advisor that turns numbers into tangible results…
Our brain behind the website that gladly joins the work on the field as well…
Paradigma NGO is a non-governmental, non-profit, apolitical organization headquartered in Podgorica, Montenegro. Paradigma works on developing sustainable initiatives in communities across Montenegro but we are open to cross border cooperation that brings benefit to multiple countries, as well.
Paradigma NGO is formally registered as NVO Paradigma in the NGO Register of Montenegro, under jurisdiction of the Ministry of Public Administration of Montenegro.
