Investing in Children and their Societies (ICS-SP) is an innovative African NGO that works in rural areas of Africa together with families, communities, and other stakeholders to create safe and nurturing environments for children to reach their full potential. At the very core of our work is Skilful Parenting and Ending Violence against Children. These are embedded in well-targeted economic empowerment and agribusiness programmes that aim to improve household income and food security. In our experience, this combined approach leads better chances of sustainably securing the wellbeing of children and families.
Our strong capacity continues to enable us to execute at grass-roots level and at the same time connect to governments, expert organizations, CSOs and other stakeholders. Working together with a range of stakeholders has led to better programming that has resulted to stronger, capable and connected families where children are nurtured well and protected from all forms of violence.
Our focus is on East Africa, building on our longstanding presence in Western Kenya, Northern Tanzania and lately in Côte d’Ivoire.
