Investing in Children and their Societies (ICS-SP) strives towards a better future for children in rural Africa. At the very core of our work is Skilful Parenting and Ending Violence against Children. We operate in Africa. ICS-SP is in the process of pre-qualifying suppliers for various goods and services for the year 2021 under the following categories. Tender Categories



In order to achieve our vision of having a world in which every child grows up in a safe and nurturing family environment, we have developed and tested a number of tool kits, manuals, and guidelines. We use these materials to guide discussions and to train parents, caregivers, teachers, and service providers.

Here are some of our publications:
