Center for Development Initiatives (CDI) exists to build upon and sustain self-help initiatives through which individuals, groups and communities can cope with their immediate socio-economic needs, underdevelopment and social exclusion.
As spring boards’ self-help and community initiatives offer routes to empowerment, engagement and have been found to generate new possibilities for social interaction and solidarity. We therefore work to build vibrant, equitable and tolerant communities through a range of activities that promote social justice, education, public health and livelihood opportunities. In all our programmes, we seek to create knowledge formation by encouraging creative activities to generate resources from within the groups and communities to enable them take control ,rely on themselves and solve their own problems their own way.
The programme activities take a multi-sector approach to raising awareness on human trafficking and expanding livelihood opportunities in communities particularly those in Northern Ghana (Upper West, East and Northern Regions) that have been deviled with inadequate socio-economic infrastructure, low levels of health, nutrition, incomes and well-being in addition to selected migrants settlement areas in urban Accra and Kumasi.
