About Us
Committed to inspiring and supporting the development of gifted children.

We are committed to the identification, classification, stratification and fortification of the gifted children in Africa and the diaspora. An emphasis on creating opportunities for pupils to identify their gifts and talents and for abilities to flourish.

We support and develop policies and practices that encourage and respond to the diverse expressions of gifts and talents in children and youth. We help identify talented and gifted pupils and students, that is, those who out perform at the level expected for children in their age group. This may be in one or more areas of learning. We support and engage in research and development, staff development, advocacy, communication, and collaboration with other organizations and agencies who strive to improve the quality of education for all students.

Our Vision is to be the world’s foremost organization providing opportunities for children of African descent to identify, develop and utilize their gifted potentials.

Our Mission is to inspire and support development of giftedness in children of African descent wherever they are located.

We can make a difference in enabling these pupils achieve high level of progress very quickly. Research has shown that by making provision for gifted, talented and able pupils and students, the standards of achievement are raised for all pupils and students. IAFTG values all children equally and help ensure that each child has the opportunity to achieve his/her potentials.

Our Aim

We ensure a consistent approach to the identification and support of the gifted child(ren) through: An agreed, shared definition of the terms "able", "more able", "gifted", "talented" and "exceptionally able".

Identification of talented or gifted pupils and students as early as possible, substantiating identification by the use of objective assessment measures meeting pupils' needs with a range of appropriate strategies.

Promoting opportunities for disadvantaged learners working in partnership with parents/schools to help them promote children's learning and development. Making use of links with schools and the wider community to enhance learning opportunities. Establishing appropriate schools where such do not exist.

Raising school proprietors and teachers awareness of the range of strategies available to them. Providing access to a suitably differentiated and challenging curriculum with emphasis on creating opportunities for pupils to identify their gifts and talents and for abilities to flourish. Fostering a culture of achievement by creating a climate of learning and excellence for the gifted.
