International Child Advancement is a non-profit organization with a mission to empower orphans and underprivileged children worldwide through education, vocational training, livelihood provision and mentoring.
We are passionate about providing a more promising future to both children who have no families of their own or whose families have no means to support the cost of education. We do this not solely by sending them finances but also by creating and implementing programs that will allow them to become self-sufficient, leaders in their communities and have an equal chance at success.
We lean on Philippians 4:13 which states: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".
EDUCATE EMPOWER ELEVATE
•We are a small organization holistically supporting the needs (educational, nutritional, medical, housing and vocational) of orphans in the Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
•We work to bring awareness to the plight of the underprivileged children we support through a pen pal program with children in the New York State area.
•We foster the enrichment of a support network for orphans and underprivileged children who often lack adult role models in their lives through our mentorship program.
•We are entirely driven by a small group of passionate volunteers in Western New York, led by our Founder who is of Congolese descent.
•We plan to expand our mission by deepening support of the orphanage in the Congo, partnering with Hope for Cancer Kids in Kenya, and continuing to look for ways to support children in a variety of locations worldwide.
