IGI conducted various activities under four important portfolios which were been: Community Development, Education, Healthcare, Youth and Women empowerment and Voluntary Services.
IGI donated various educational and learning materials to some schools which were novels, exercise books, pens, pencils, erasers, mathematical sets and others to pupils. These gestures from IGI in education in general have gone along way of enhancing the improvement of education in the beneficiary schools and in the lives of the pupils.
IGI did a number of activities in its catchment areas towards the general improvement of quality health care delivery in Ghana. IGI organized health sensitization programs on malaria, personal hygiene, berhazia in some communities. IGI also donated some mosquito nets to some pregnant women and children in these rural communities in 2015. IGI also supported the treatment cost of some people who fell on the NGO for various assistances on medical treatment at tertiary hospitals.
IGI will definitely work towards the improvement in the coming years so as to feed into the general vision of ensuring qualitative health care delivery in the country.
In the year 2015, IGI performed numerous projects in some communities aimed at improving communities’ assets as well as imparting positively on the qualitative livelihood of the people. Additionally, to equip development aid workers and donors with some reliable data on some rural communities that were in dire need of supports, IGI conducted some community profiling. The projects were carried to collect data on demography, health and education issues, sources of livelihood and other relevant information for development planning on communities.
Youth work camps
IGI organized youth work camps that provided both local and foreign volunteers the opportunity to interact with rural communities and harnessed the competence of the communities in addressing some challenges in some deprived communities.
Placement of volunteers
IGI recruited local and foreign volunteers in 2015 and placed them in some institutions that had requested for volunteers to perform some activities in these institutions in Health, Education, Community Development, Child care. These volunteers have been actively been engaged as Teaching Assistants helping substantive Ghanaian teachers in the teaching of Mathematics, General Science, English, Creative Arts, I.C.T. and child care. These volunteers contributed immensely in the improvement of education in Ghana in 2015.
IGI hopes to continue creating opportunity for altruistic youths living anywhere on the globe to be part of sustainable pursuit of development in Ghana through volunteerism in the coming years. Why not choose something different for your 2016 New Year Resolution?

IGI will continue to extend these gestures to women and youths I deprived communities in other to alleviate the plight of the vulnerable.
