Pan-African Community Development Initiative, Inc. (“Pan-African CDI”) is a grassroots organization based in the South Bronx, whose purpose is to promote the economic advancement of low-income and immigrant communities in New York through providing direct services, training and education and a community-run credit union.
Pan-African Community Development Initiative seek to empower the African Community in the diaspora to contribute to the economic development of their communities.
We conduct educational seminars/classes on how to buy a home and establish a good credit history, as well as provide confidential access to financial counselors to assist members in: developing budgets and managing accounts, consolidating debt and avoiding bankruptcy.
Our strategic development team consists of ten dedicated professionals and visionaries with direct personal knowledge of the community; diverse academic backgrounds and professional expertise in administration, finance, communication, informational technologies and infrastructural, and organizational development.
More importantly, we have a mutual interest in community economic development.
This has been a year of great strides for our organization: We moved one step closer to chartering the Pan-African Federal Credit Union: the first and only African-led credit union in the nation. We successfully launched our SNAP, Financial Counseling, Homeownership Seminars & Childcare Business Development Programs.
