 As you may be aware IMANI is a not-for- profit organization, and our funding is only by the support of persons and organizations who appreciate our work – like you.


 Through effective communication skills and the ability to work with public-spirited media and civil society, we are shaping national, regional and global agenda in order to close the “citizen participation gap” in the governance process. Our work has earned us the distinction of being voted the 6th most effective Think Tank in Africa and among the twenty most innovative think tanks globally by the University of Pennsylvania, the UN University and Foreign Policy Magazine.

  • IMANI was ranked 5th most influential think in Africa (2010) by Foreign Policy Magazine.
  • In 2013, IMANI was ranked 4th best think tank in Africa by the University of Pennsylvania.
  • In 2014, IMANI is ranked the second most influential think tank in Africa by the University of Pennsylvania. 
  • We are the number one policy think tank in Ghana by impact and by rankings.

IMANI’s works have been cited and used by international organizations like the World Bank, The International Monetary Fund, The British House of Common Debates and worldwide respected media outlets like the Africa Report (France), Jeune Afrique (France), BBC (UK), Daily Graphic (Ghana), Fraternite Matin (Cote d’Ivoire), Contrepoints (France), Agence A Free Press (Togo) among others.

 IMANI has grown, within a short time of its existence, to become a stalwart for encouraging reality-based solutions to a complex array of economic and social problems in and beyond Ghana –  Ishac Diwan, Former World Bank Country Director for Ghana, Sierra Leone, Africa Region.

We have over 50 media partners across Africa that help us strengthen and influence public debates.


Unlike, many other research institutes that limit themselves to just a single policy area IMANI is a multi-disciplinary platform.

We know the behavior of governments and understand the language they speak.

 So sponsorship or donation is one way you can defend, in a concrete way, our heritage to facilitate broad prosperity based on freedom, open markets, critical enquiry and an efficient and accountable public service.

 When you support or join  IMANI you are not just a contributor, you are a colleague – you become part of a decision making body of this country – you join the club thinkers  changing the face of Africa.

You’ll also have access to the latest IMANI publications, reports and invitations to IMANI events. (Join our Global Subscribers here)
