CIKOD (Centre for Indigenous Knowledge and Organizational Development)
"In the past, we (chiefs) could not meet because the issue of who owes allegiance to whom,
but now, because of the creation of this house, we can all meet at a common forum and amicably discuss issues’ Development should build on what people have, not on what we think they need." S.B Kendie.
CIKOD is a non-governmental organization based in Ghana. Its main mission is to develop methodologies for the strengthening of traditional authorities and civil society organizations to facilitate sustainable grassroots organizational development that gives voice to the poor and vulnerable rural families. CIKOD is partnering with a number of International Organizations including CARE International, Korand Adenaeur Stifftung and COMPAS International.
CIKOD's logo has a very particular meaning. The Bird is a Traditional Symbol called "SANKOFA", which means Learning from your Roots in Order to Move Forward, while the Surrounding of the Bird Resembles the Step by Step of a Development Process. CIKOD's goal is to transform indigenous institutions and local groups into vibrant grassroots civil society organizations that would enhance participation of rural communities in their own development processes. CIKOD aims to facilitate dialogue on the role of indigenous knowledge and institution in modern day community development and empowerment.
