ICRI envisions a world in which all children and families are able to fulfill their greatest potential.
Early Childhood Care and Education
All children deserve access to high quality, stimulating, developmentally appropriate early childhood care and education. Early intervention promotes healthy growth and development of both individual children and their communities.
All children should live safe and stable lives, free from abuse and violence. We believe recognition and protection of children’s rights is essential 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. 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 to ensure they physically and mentally thrive. We believe HIV/AIDS and other public health challenges must be addressed at every opportunity in order to ensure the well-being of individual women and children, as well as their communities.
Grassroots Community Development
ICRI envisions a world in which all communities have access to the resources necessary to overcome poverty. Sustainability and self-sufficiency are core principles of every effort to improve the lives of children and families around the world.
