Last December, ICCM launched our 2020 Vision campaign, believing God for a major step forward in our ability to impact thousands of children’s lives. Our faithful sponsors and donors have gotten us off to a strong start. Thank you!
We thought you’d like a brief update as 2018 draws to a close.
2020 Vision is a three-year focus to strategically invest in three key areas:
01: Developing Our Global Team
02: Leveraging Our Technology
03: Completing Our Capital Projects
Developing Our Global Team
In 2018, three groups of leaders gathered for vision casting, team building, learning and strategic planning. Southeast Asian leaders met in the Philippines, seven Regional Coordinators from around the globe met in the U.S., and Latin American leaders met in Colombia.
When our leaders experience the power of being on a unified team, they are energized for the sacrificial work of administering the program and blessing the children. Equipped and motivated leaders end up benefiting the children in much greater ways.
Leveraging Our Technology
Thanks to your 2020 Vision gifts, we’ve finally upgraded from our 19-year-old database and website to a much better software and website, connected to each other.
You can create an account, view your child’s photo, birth date and other data and write a letter to your child. You cam make an online contribution and check to see your prior giving. You can also browse our new website with its many informative pages, one for each country. If you have friends or family members who don’t yet sponsor with ICCM, you can send them to the beautiful new site to find a child who desperately needs their support.
Completing Our Capital Projects
Buconyori Boys Boarding School in Kenya, now in it’s second year of operation, has added classrooms and dorms for its growing enrollment of students.
Davao City, the Philippines, Door of Hope Project had experienced a tragic fire in which a beloved young woman was killed. A memorial gift accomplished the first phase; 2020 Vision funds are being used to build a second story and make the space useable for the wonderful Holistic Child Develoment program at Door of Hope.
In Paraguay, an adjacent property to our Juan Wesley School became available to expand our preschool and outdoor play space. We were able to seize the opportunity to purchase and renovate this strategic property.
Alem Tena, Ethiopia now has a functional high school for the first time ever. The bright young learners are excited!
Will you help use finish strong for our first year of the 2020 Vision?
A generous year-end gift will keep the 2020 Vision on track and position us to face the New Year’s opportunities and challenges. These investments are bearing fruit all over the world. Through child sponsorship and ongoing gifts, children who had no hope of an education are thriving and growing. Vulnerable children are protected. Hungry little ones are being nourished. Thousands of them experience the joy of learning, hope for living and the love of Jesus.
Thank you for caring!
