International Childcare Trust

International Childcare Trust (ICT) believes that all children, regardless of socio-economic background, have the right to enjoy their childhood and reach their potential. We partner with local grassroots NGOs in Africa and Asia - managed and staffed by local people - that protect children's rights. We combine the delivery of practical assistance with capacity building and advocacy initiatives because we take responsibility for building sustainability into the projects/partners we support.

Mission

International Childcare Trust (ICT) believes that all children, regardless of socio-economic background, have the right to enjoy their childhood and reach their potential. We partner with local grassroots NGOs in Africa and Asia - managed and staffed by local people - that protect children's rights. We combine the delivery of practical assistance with capacity building and advocacy initiatives because we take responsibility for building sustainability into the projects/partners we support.

Programs

ICT supports local organisations that take an integrated approach to child development, combining the delivery of practical assistance with organisational development and advocacy initiatives. Practical assistance includes supporting direct benefits to disadvantaged children, their families and communities, e.g. income generation schemes, vocational training, rehabilitation and reintegration of children back into families and communities. We believe that, if these services are to be sustainable, we must invest in the development of these local organisations and the people who run them to improve the quality of care provided to children. We also foster learning and independence and support advocacy initiatives, so that local communities and governments become aware of their rights and responsibilities; stand up to corruption and injustice; and address their own problems.
