BarbudanGO is one of the first, fully registered, grass-roots non-governmental organisations (NGO) on Barbuda. It was formed by resident Barbudans Asha Frank, Pethrolynna Isaac and Brandon Walker after experiencing Hurricane Irma, to give communities opportunity to re-build after the disaster when most of the aid was being directed to the government in Antigua. They are inclusive and sustainable, going from strength to strength, tackling locally important issues, employing Barbudans on small scale development projects and collaborating with other local and international organisations on bigger issues; constantly trying to get funding direct to the experts on Barbuda – the Barbudans.

So far their projects have included an island wide water-harvesting project, a Covid Awareness campaign, marine conservation through Ocean Fest, teaching local workers the skills to re-build ancient wells, the arts and more – but all are listed on their facebook page, where, if you like what you see, you can also contact them to give a donation or offer your expertise.
