International Care Ministries
For 25 years, the International Care Ministries (ICM) has been inspiring hope, providing help, and leading change for families living in ultra-poverty in the Philippines. Their focus is in helping the poorest families that are the hardest to reach, with strategies backed up by in-depth research, delivering the highest impact for the lowest cost possible.
The ICM mission starts with giving hope. They believe that with the right values, families will be able to overcome trials with courage and a sense of dignity. These values are taught through bible-based courses, by local pastors and volunteers who already serve and even live among the poor. The belief is that in order for change to come, one must first enrich his or her spiritual life.
Poor health can both lead to and be a cause of poverty so the mission continues with promoting health and wellness through medical aide, nutrition support, and even health and hygiene courses. These courses include basic first aid, disease prevention, family care, child development, and other public health information.
Transforming lives requires providing the marginalized with the right tools to improve their standing. The ICM educational mission teaches mothers to become the first teachers to their children through educational games and songs. With this program, young children learn fundamental phonics, math, social skills, and a love of learning. Apart from preparing them for a smoother transition into primary school, the ICM educational program also helps parent-child relationships flourish.
The final focus in the ICM mission is in teaching and providing the tools for sustainable income. They provide 360 support that involve financial aid for capital, and teaching business skills like product development, marketing, bookkeeping, and financing. This program helps mothers start small businesses so they can provide for their children and save for the future.
