Navrongo-Bolgatanga Catholic Diocesan Development Organization (NABOCADO) is a Catholic faith-based organization that has been dedicated to promoting rural development since its establishment in 1981. Operating within the entirety of the diocese, which encompasses all 15 administrative districts of the Upper East Region and 6 districts in the Northern-East Region, NABOCADO serves a population estimated at 2 million people, with a growth rate of 3% per annum. Situated in the Sahel ecological region, the diocese is predominantly rural, with 75% of the population residing in rural areas and 85% engaged in agrarian activities.

Sectors of Operation:
NABOCADO operates across four main sectors: Health Service, Education, Livelihood and Advocacy, and Good Governance Justice and Peace. Each sector is overseen by a Director, with coordination facilitated by the Human Resource Coordinator.

The organization's mission is to promote and sustain integral human development among the poor and marginalized within the diocese. This is achieved through initiatives aimed at enhancing livelihoods and food security, improving the quality of health and education services, fostering equity, and promoting peaceful coexistence.

NABOCADO envisions a dignified life for the poor, wherein marginalized individuals in rural areas have access to quality education and health services, adequate food and income, and decent shelter. This vision aligns with the social teachings of the Catholic Church.

Core Values:
NABOCADO is guided by core values that include a commitment to Christian principles, a people-centered approach, non-discriminatory practices, responsible stewardship, fostering partnerships, and upholding transparency in its operations.
