Kimpact Development Initiative (KDI) is a youth-focused nonprofit, nonpartisan, nongovernmental organization that advances good governance, democratic rights, public policy, public engagement and sustainable economy. We do this by building informed and active citizens through capacity development, advancing public policies, data driven advocacy and reforms that gives a more supportive environment for citizen-led development.
Since March 2014, KDI has worked hand-in-hand with both Local and International bodies to promote peaceful election, active citizen engagement in democratic processes, reforms and sustainable economy. We hinge our advocacy, reforms, policy advancement and democratic supports on the principle of social cohesion. KDI has administrative structures and partners in all the 36 states of Nigeria.
KDI uses in-depth research, capacity development and public policy advocacy with bottom-up and holistic approach which focus on individual attitudinal change amongst citizens as well as systematic change in policy and practice towards a more supportive environment for citizen-led development.
We support government and policy makers to engage citizens in the decisions that affect them. In addition, we build the capacity of other organizations to work more effectively with and for young people.
