Innovation for Empowerment and Development (IFED) is an educational and advocacy organization that provides globally accepted platforms to empower people, especially the youth, and use programmes and projects to help translate the power gained into development. It focuses much more on Africa in fulfilling its missions but hopes to extend to other continents.

IFED, a Company Limited by guarantee under the code of Company and a third sector organization partners with other organizations, builds various networks of like-minds globally and utilises the teamwork spirit to work along with its volunteers and executive members to accomplish its programmes and projects.

Also, IFED has corresponding offices in seven countries which support the accomplishment of the Empowerment and Development mission.

IFED convicts to be the leading organization in International Development through its programmes and activities in affecting the development agenda within its regions, and raising honest and diligent people as leaders in various endeavours of life in Africa and beyond, where they will be wholeheartedly involved in the building process leading to sustainable development.

IFED sees as far practically and gradually as the eagle and convicts strongly to be one of the most influential and reliable organizations to raise global leaders. It also believes in affecting the development of Africa and beyond by consulting and partnering with other international organizations such as USAID, UNDP, JICA, etc.

1. EMPOWERMENT

The first mission of IFED is empowering people to lead, especially the youth, and also make them agents of change for the better livelihood of people in Africa and beyond.

2. DEVELOPMENT

Development is one of the true concerns of IFED in achieving its mission in Africa and beyond. Youths who are empowered, are equipped and become agents of positive change in their societies.
Through our conferences, we will encourage delegates to go into social entrepreneurship and volunteerism. We believe this part of our world has many demands that require critical actions towards development. We are prepared not just to talk the talk, but also walk the walk to see change in Africa.

POLICY / ADVISORY
By IFED’s research into policy creation, policies will be formulated, evaluation will be done and recommendations to use them will follow up. This will be done through a carefully created platform that will bring like-minds together such as Model United Nations Conference.

OUTREACH / ADVOCACY
Through IFED Development Project, people will be reached or influenced positively.
Also, with the set of programs embedded in the IFED Calendar, campaigns will be embarked.
Planned programs will be put in place via a range of media platforms to help curb or reduce resources needed.

PRACTITIONER
IFED plays the role as a practitioner, it embarks on programs that lead to empowerment and it implements projects that bring development to the people of Africa and beyond.
It does that with its growing human resource of youth practitioners.

SUPPORT
Through IFED programmes we will support the needy. A typical example of how IFED will support people is through the IFED Development Project and IFED Calendar.
