Bernard Baba Ambotumah, Samuel Quain, Xiaaba Dantallah Yidana, Ike Joe Nii Annang Mensah Livingstone, Faustina Otsyina


Models of social innovation are uncommon, because they are taken for granted. When it comes to development, the focus is on technology, for most people. However, there is always the underlying element of innovation, which is social. Incidentally some organizations are developing only through social innovation. One of such organization is JCIPU. The exploits of the organization are shown by way of a descriptive study. The research is qualitative associated with the usual data collection of in-depth, semi- interviews, observations and the use of secondary data. Whilst the activities of the organization are shown in a model, the themes underlying the model which were developed through a vigorous deductive and inductive data coding system are shown as the results of the study.  Theoretical underpinnings and practical implications for the research are shown at the appropriate sections of the study.

Keywords: Social innovation; qualitative descriptive studies; NGO’s; Ghana
