We Are Initiators

Initiators of Change Foundation (ICF) is a non-governmental organization which was established in 2006 and duly registered in June 2008, incorporated under the Registrar General’s Department with registration number G-24,713. ICF is a governance, poverty reduction, empowerment and human resource development-based organization.

At ICF, we simply believe in engaging in activities that offer tangible positive impact in society. We back initiatives that contribute to a just and inclusive society at all levels. The NGO plans to obtain branches across the African continent to assist in making life more meaningful for the teeming masses of people who wallow in misery and poverty.

Consequently, the focus has been on governance, poverty reduction, empowerment and human resource development. Our prime objective is to help make life meaningful for the teeming majority who wallow in misery and poverty in Ghana and across the African continent. The formation of the ICF was triggered by personal life experience of Mr Kofi Gyan, the founder, during a journey from Accra to Techiman in 2005. Whilst in transit that day around 3:00 a.m. in Kumasi, Mr. Gyan, then an undergraduate of the University of Ghana, Legon, saw to his utmost shock, a countless number of people lying on verandas in the cold and shivering like featherless birds. He was also to observe a similar incident one night in Accra with a large number of homeless young men, women and children sleeping on the side-walks of the High Street.
To build a new generation of Africans with a positive self-image, confidence, and to create opportunities for the less privileged in society.
To become a continental organization that will empower the youth, poor, vulnerable and less privileged persons to realize their dreams and enhance their lives for the general benefit of society.

The prime objectives of ICF include but not limited to the following:

1. To discover, develop and promote talents of young people for national development
