About Ihsan Foundation
While most of the work has been focused on Sierra Leone due to the devastation of a decade long war, Ihsan has since broadened its services to other neighboring countries – Guinea, Cameroon, Niger, Ghana, and Nigeria, Mali, Somalia, and The Central African Republic.
Ihsan Foundation works with many local communities and various local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) throughout the region to implement its projects.
Ihsan Foundation is a U.S. Tax-exempt non-profit charity incorporated in 1997 (Federal Tax ID# 77-0441551)
In 1996, a handful of people met in the heart of San Francisco Bay Area Silicon Valley ( Santa Clara, California, USA) to cultivate one simple idea – How Muslims and people of goodwill in North America can make a difference to nurture hope for individuals and communities in West Africa. This conviction gave birth to the Ihsan Foundation of West Africa. Over the last 18 years, Ihsan directed its efforts toward addressing the devastating effects of Sierra Leone’s vicious rebel war.
