ICDI national, regional and international reputation and experience are important to its research, lobbying and advocacy work. It employs an integrated, systematic approach and strategies to engage the ordinary people and authorities to join together to show decision–makers that they care about development and social reforms in the world, and to demand change.

In the United King


dom and EU, and some countries of West and Southern Africa, we have constantly been in process of building networks and data-bases for around 50,000 youths and several adults who are serving and volunteering as ICDI researchers and campaigners, who helps to engage communities and collate information, engage in project delivery and implementation, and put pressure on those with the power to make a difference, either by presenting facts through research, visiting them, or holding special events to attract local and national media attention and raising public awareness of national and global issues, or take part in peaceful protests at meetings of national and world leaders to influence reform issues and policy thrusts.

As a long-term strategic focus, ICDI is also campaigning side by side with other major and global ‘partner’ organizations, both in UK and elsewhere, to ensure that it makes a truly global impact.




In ICDI, skills improvement, long–term human and sustainable development and a strengthened citizenry is our watchword through dedication to qualitative research and collective response, campaigning and advocacy work, in all that we do.

We strive not only to meet, but also routinely exceed society’s expectations through continual improvement, international alliance and civil participatory to a worldwide community of informed, inspired, committed citizen and organizations engaged in confronting the challenges facing humanity.




200401806-001At International Centre for Development Initiatives (ICDI) we are guided by an unwavering commitment to voluntary service excellence through self – management, informed advocacy, team work, efficiency, innovation and quality – consciousness.

We recognize and measure our success by achievement and impact in development leadership, the proficient recognition of our contributions, adequate feed backs from supported groups and communities, and being a responsible and supportive civil society organization.

We believe that the strength of our impacts is derived from the ability of our networks and volunteers to respond to communities needs with keen forensic sense and pragmatic approach that values multi – disciplinary inputs in every identified intervention effort.

It is ground knowledge that ICDI is a people–oriented social enterprise, and we do everything possible to make the community’s experience with us one with pleasant memories of impacting development.
