iCON at Glance
The iCON Enterprise Foundation (iCON) is a Ugandan non-profit organization that is committed to leveraging African family values of kinship and community accountability to reinstate the pivotal role the family unit plays in shaping individual and societal values, protecting women and children, raising boys to be true gentlemen, fostering social cohesion and harmony, and equipping children and young people with key leadership and 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 gender equity, 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.
