ICRI envisions a world in which all children and families are able to fulfill their greatest potential.
We work towards this goal by focusing on:
Early Childhood Care and Education
All children deserve access to high quality, stimulating, developmentally appropriate early childhood care and education. We believe that early intervention promotes the healthy growth and development not just of individual children, but of entire communities.
Children must be allowed to live safe and stable lives, free from abuse and violence. We believe that recognizing and protecting children’s rights is an essential step towards ensuring human rights for all.
Empowerment of Women and Girls
Women and girls must be allowed to advance themselves and their communities without discrimination, exploitation, or gender-based violence. We believe that investing in young women and girls is one of the most effective means of transforming society.
Maternal and Child Health
Women and children must have access to health interventions that allow them to physically and mentally thrive. We believe that HIV/AIDS and other public health challenges must be addressed at every opportunity, in order to ensure the wellbeing of individual women and children as well as the larger communities in which they live.
Grassroots Community Development
ICRI envisions a world in which all communities have access to the resources necessary to overcome poverty. We believe that sustainability and self-sufficiency must be core principles of every effort to improve the lives of children and families around the world.
