The implementation of OIC Training Centers in America birthed OIC International (OICI).
Five years after the first OIC training center was established in Philadelphia,
an affiliate OIC was launched at the request of Africans who wished to implement in their own countries the OIC training model that had proven successful in the United States.
The first OIC affiliate programs started in Nigeria, Ghana and Ethiopia in 1970 and similar programs soon followed in other parts of Africa and elsewhere in the world.
