What a year 2010 has been for ICRI! We are thrilled by the incredible growth and progress of our programs to serve children and families around the globe. Here in the Bay Area, ICRI Staff and Board recently gathered together for our annual party to celebrate the holidays and the many wonderful people who make up the ICRI family.
At the same time, we know that it is never truly possible for us to gather together in one place all of the amazing people who are part of ICRI. There is simply too much good work going on, in too many places, for that to be feasible. So at this time of year we feel even more appreciative than usual of every person who contributes their hard work, creative ideas, and passion for serving children and families. We give thanks for every one of them-- and for all of our friends, supporters, and partners who share our goal of "empowering the village to raise the child."
2011 will mark the 30th anniversary of ICRI's founding. It is shaping up to be a groundbreaking year for our organization, and we can't wait to tell you more about all of our exciting plans to make an even greater impact on the wellbeing of children and families around the world. Please stay tuned, and in the meantime-- we wish you a peaceful holiday season and a prosperous 2011.
