Icelandic Church Aid (ICA) assists people experiencing poverty at home and abroad, regardless of their nationality, race, religion or political ideas. ICA emphasizes gender equality and capacity building and we encourage people we assist to take an active part in carrying out the projects. Their participation and ownership are key to lasting changes and sustainability. In Iceland our emphasis is on the wellbeing and social inclusion of children and youth experiencing poverty. We provide low income families with debit cards valid in food stores the year round. We provide assistance at the beginning of the school year enabling parents to buy school material and clothing for their children. Our social workers assist people in tackling the sitation at hand and organise workshops and seminars to boost self esteem and confidence enabling people to take an active part in society.Thank you for assisting us in assisting others!
