Since its inception, the organization has carved a niche for itself as one of frontline Non Governmental Organization promoting Economic Development, Youth Development and Democratic Governance.

KDI started as “Impact Foundations” in 2005 which focused on youth development through training and seminars among students. In the quest to ensure that youths contribute more to the socio-economic activities of the country, KDI thus introduced good governance and policy advocacy to its developmental projects on youth.

Since March 2014, KDI has worked hand-in-hand with both Local and International bodies in order to achieve its goals.


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.
