About Us

Who we are...

Welcome to OUR Official Website

We work to reduce risks to vulnerable populations and to help communities, non-governmental organizations, and local authority provide services and protection for at-risk groups. For Initiative Africa vulnerable populations are defined as those groups of people who are typically excluded, disadvantaged or marginalized based on their economic, environmental, social, or cultural characteristics, specifically, children, youth and women. Through a variety of programs IA helps vulnerable populations gain access to opportunities that support their full participation in society. We contribute to the development of capacities of vulnerable populations nationwide and across Africa. In doing so, we help prevent conflict, spur economic growth, and advance human dignity.
