    Harnessing Indigenous Potentials in Africa (HIPo-Africa) is a local in-country capacity building organization which uses participatory approaches in addressing fundamental community based health and social development initiatives by applying the concepts of Indigenous Knowledge Systems prevailing in specific communities into interventions.

    It is a non government organization which first started operation in 2008 as a consultancy firm but later created an NGO arm (HIPA) which was registered in May 2010. HIPo-Africa specializes in building capacities of international, regional, national and local health and social service delivery organizations.

    HIPo-Africa was born out of the desire to strengthen organizational capacities by integrating IKS into their interventions having realized that this knowledge system had a strong bearing on the service utilization patterns especially in the rural communities. This area of focus was a result of the numerous consultancy work done by the HIPo-Africa Directors in their individual capacities over the years. Capacity building of service providers has been elusive over time even where a lot of resources have been invested.
