iCON at a Glance
The iCON Enterprise Foundation (iCON) is a Ugandan non-profit organization that is committed to reinstating the pivotal role the family unit plays in fostering social cohesion and harmony, building children’s and young people’s innate leadership capacities and equipping them with key life skills required to be productive and engaged citizens.
We advocate for parental responsibility and strengthen family resilience and family leadership capacity to innovatively address the key barriers to children’s education, women’s empowerment, and family stability. Such barriers include negative social-cultural norms, poverty, ill health, violence against children, exploitation, exclusion, inequality, and inequity. iCON works with families that are in distress or/and disproportionately vulnerable and disadvantaged by intractable social, economic, cultural, health and natural challenges.
