International Child Development Initiatives
International Child Development Initiatives is small and extensive, international and local, academic and practical. We are pledged to improve the lives of boys and girls all over the world and we believe that families and communities are key to realising that promise. Working with partners from Nepal to Nicaragua we use local knowledge, international funding, expertise and friendship to strengthen our work. By detecting new social trends we pinpoint areas of need and create tailor-made strategies to inspire change. Our objectives are to develop talent and build independence; to give children and young people the confidence to speak out, and their communities the skills to listen and help. With honesty and good humour we are relentlessly ambitious for the people we work with. And like the family we believe ourselves to be, we are loyal, loving and sometimes challenging.

Steun onze partner CWIN in Nepal
28-04-2015 De verschrikkelijke aardbeving heeft tot nu toe duizenden mensen het leven gekost. Nog veel meer zijn gewond of hebben geen huis meer. Er is dringende behoefte aan voedsel, kleding en medicijnen. ICDI werkt al jaren in Nepal met onze partnerorganisatie CWIN (voor meer informatie zie www.cwin.org.np ). Dit is een van de grootste kinderrechten organisaties in het land, ze ondersteunen kwetsbare kinderen in diverse regio’s, waaronder Kathmandu zelf. Onmiddelijk nadat de ramp zich voltrokken heeft zijn de mensen van CWIN begonnen met het helpen van gewonde kinderen en hun families. Wij hebben hen gevraagd hoe we ze kunnen helpen en hun antwoord was helder: geef ons alsjeblieft geld. De Nepalezen zijn zeer goed in staat om zelf de hulpverlening te organiseren. Wat ze nodig hebben is geld om de noodzakelijke hulpmiddelen te kopen en om deze te verspreiden. Daarom vragen we u wat CWIN vraagt: geld. U kunt een bedrag naar keuze overmaken naar IBANnummer: NL80 TRIO 0254 7111 89, t.n.v. ICDI onder vermelding van ‘Nepal’. Wij garanderen dat elke cent direct naar CWIN in Nepal gaat.
