The Ikandy Foundation addresses urban poverty through water, health, and sanitation projects in Africa. We also purpose to create the foundation for economic growth through the development of small business and micro finance initiatives. One of the core goals of the Ikandy Foundation is partnering with and developing Social Entrepreneurs who can run projects that will combat poverty in developing countries.
Youth sports build more than just muscle. They help children acquire necessary social and leadership skills. The goal of our program is to identify and develop the rare talents of children. By engaging the children, we are encouraging growth development and physical fitness. The Ikandy Foundation is always looking for volunteers to coach and be responsible for developing and implementing a physical fitness program for the children.
“Train a child up in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not turn from it.”
Proverbs 22: 5-7. The focus of this program is in developing the children’s experience of God’s love as they grow in their knowledge of the Christian faith. They will learn how to proclaim their faith and will learn new ways to serve God in the church and in their local and international communities.
Our work is driven by a passionate belief that we all have a responsibility to promote the development of youth in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, and as members of their local, national and international communities.
