Who We Are

Working for the Discriminated Youth Everywhere! 


Community Concepts Inc is an international startup nonprofit organization based in Waltham, Massachusetts. Our mission is to ensure social and economic justice for the discriminated youth in developing countries, particularly in Africa. We particularly seek to address the plight of youth who are discriminated.


Our work is focused on countering and defeating socioeconomic challenges that are a consequence of ignorance or misconceived government policies. Our vision is the equitable provision of opportunity for all youth so that they are empowered to live fulfilling and prosperous lives. We aim to give hope to the youth in poor countries so they can meaningfully provide a foundation upon which the futures of their communities are built.


Our founder started Community Concepts Inc in July of 2016. He was perturbed by the colossal amounts of aid and development finance given to poor countries over the years but which have borne little progress. A quick assessment led him to conclude that a few factors were primarily responsible: lack of scientific management in affected areas of the world and intrinsic poor political leadership.

At Community Concepts Inc, we, therefore, seek to practice scientific management in our pursuit. For example, if we cannot measurably define the problem, we do not engage in its solution. We seek to understand and measure the problem and be able to evaluate impact.


We are also guided by the belief that to fundamentally change socioeconomic life in poor countries around the world, the focus has to be on the youth. It is futile to premise the future of communes upon younger people who themselves have no hope. This way, the cycle of poverty and social injustice will never end.


Thus, we aim to focus upon empowering the youth, especially those discriminated due to socioeconomic injustices embedded in the communities and, at times, perpetuated by the State. We are compassionate but fearless purveyors of socioeconomic justice.


Vision and Values

At Community Concepts Inc, we set out to empower youth in developing economies. We believe that youth hold the future of any community. In Africa, for example, 20% of the population is aged between 15 and 34 years. We aim to turn the youth from being a community burden to a source of strength.


Our team seeks to empower them so that they can successfully be the growth engines of their communities. As a youth-in-development-focused nonprofit organization, our mission is to turn youth' challenges into opportunities.

Organizational Goals and Objectives 

In 2014, two analysts gave two seemingly different arguments that were essentially similar in focus. Researcher Andrews Atta-Asamoah stated that the exploding youth population in Africa “poses a major challenge unless properly managed.” Whereas economist Jean-Michelle Severino argued that “it is a massive workforce that can drive development.”


This is quoted from “Head-to-head: Is Africa's young population a risk or an asset?” (January 29, 2014)
