give where needed most
Giving needs change frequently based on a number of factors.
Because of this, we graciously appreciate non-designated gifts to be used where needed most.
sponsor a child
By sponsoring a child for just $1 per day, you'll be helping a child experience the joy of learning, hope for living, and the love of Jesus. Sponsor a child, change a life.

Malnutrition is an underlying cause of death for 2.6 million children each year –
a third of child deaths globally.
India Rice Fund
In India, 38% of children are stunted due to chronic undernourishment. Gifts to the India Rice Fund supply essential nutrition to children living in residential care. Please consider providing meals for these children.
Haiti Food Fund
Half the population of Haiti is undernourished, earning less than $1 a day. ICCM provides school lunches for thousands of children, sponsored and unsponsored. Often this is the only meal of their day. Gifts are urgently needed.
Burundi Food Fund
Donations bring relief to one of the world’s hungriest countries through the distribution of Busoma, a highly beneficial whole food cereal. Please consider a gift to meet this urgent need.
Special Projects cover a great variety of important items, from personal gifts of Bibles and songbooks for children to medical care, to annual camps and outreaches, to essential infrastructure investments.
Where Needed Most
Mission-critical needs arise throughout the year. Gifts to “where needed most” can fill the gap so we can meet the need quickly.
Ann’s Angel Fund
Access to emergency medical care is severely limited in most of ICCM’s countries. Ann’s Angel Fund allows us to act swiftly when the need is urgent. The boy pictured here has recovered from heart surgery and is doing well!
Bibles + Song Books
Bibles and song books in a child’s heart language are precious possessions that give words of life and transformation!
Hope Street School
Week after week, year after year, this ministry has brought hope to children living on the streets, often unsupervised and vulnerable to harm. The children receive positive attention and affirmation, not to mention food! Children who come regularly and form relationships with the adults can “graduate” to the Saturday Holistic Child Development program.
Animals benefit children at ICCM schools and projects in several of our 33 countries. Through organized and well-managed projects, animals produce nutritional, educational, and economic benefits to children in need.
Haiti Tree Projects
ICCM partners with Eden Reforestation Project to plant tens of thousands of fruit trees and other trees in school yards and at the homes of sponsored children.
(formerly Reforestation in Haiti)
Haiti Animal Projects
Our partnership with Eden is creating managed animal projects at pilot schools. These demonstrate new ways of raising goats and chickens to benefit the school children and their families, as well as the environment. New Research and Extension Centers will eventually help subsistence farmers with animal husbandry.

There are more slaves today than at any other point in human history, millions of whom are children. Sponsorship is a line of defense for many children. For the most vulnerable, we also offer homes or targeted educational resistance programs.
God has created every child with dignity. ICCM CMB, a holistic child development ministry, is committed to upholding and preserving every Cambodian child’s dignity. It is opposed to all forms of child exploitation and abuses that harm and affect a child’s development and growth.
Freedom Sunday offerings will be used to equip ICCM leaders, children’s workers, parents, pastors and even children themselves to stand up against human trafficking in this vulnerable location.
Colombia – Findesin aka “The Beehive”
“The Beehive” is a life-changing, life-giving home for dozens of vulnerable girls in Bogota, Colombia. Instead of living in fear, they are now sheltered in a safe and loving home. We supplement what the Findesin Foundation is able to do locally through the Free Methodist Church to support this vital, expensive ministry.
Ethiopia – Addis Project
ICCM partners with Amanuel Light and Life Church to reach 50 of the most destitute orphans and children who are at risk of child labor and sex work in Addis Ababa. ICCM sponsorship supports these children through access to education and development activities, creating a ripple effect benefiting the children, their families, and their community. To see a video on the Addis Project, click here.
India – Stand for Children
More children are trafficked in India than anywhere else in the world. “Stand for Children” equips caregivers, parents, pastors and other adults involved with our children’s hostels with information to prevent, intervene and end child trafficking in India. We have expanded into schools and other community groups to proclaim the message of freedom for all.
Philippines – ATA Hostel Project
As is often the case, indigenous peoples are most vulnerable to traffickers. ICCM serves children in the Philippines who are in danger of being trafficked while walking to school in remote tribal areas. We operate a hostel where children are welcomed, loved, fed and protected during the school week and return to their families on the weekends.
Thailand – Lahu Project
Thailand is known for its robust sex tourism. Behind that sinister industry is the scourge of poverty that keeps people desperate for survival and easy to exploit. That’s why International Child Care Ministries was asked by local faith leaders to build a hostel and provide education, food, clothing and hope for tribal children. Our hostel provides 20 children with access to primary and secondary education and Christian care.
Philippines - Project Transformers
Metro Manila has the dubious distinction of being the global center of the booming business of cybersex. Children need vigilant adults to prevent unthinkable exploitation. Since 2015, Project Transformers has been offering Holistic Child Development activities, including the personal attention of a caseworker for each of the 50 children involved and their parents.
Where Needed Most - Anti-trafficking
Through seven anti-trafficking initiatives, ICCM provides care and education to vulnerable children and equips thousands of adults and children to prevent exploitation each year. Gifts to this fund will be used “where needed most” among our anti-trafficking projects in Thailand, India, the Philippines, Colombia, Ethiopia and Haiti.

Emerging Leaders Scholarship
In our changing world, doors of opportunity open for those who pursue post high school education. A few of the brightest applicants who show promise as scholars and already demonstrate Christian leadership are given Emerging Leaders Scholarships. Consider sponsoring a student’s university education, making a dream come true. In most cases, a year’s tuition, room and board costs $2,500.
Most teachers in Haiti lack formal higher education. To address this need, our team of well-qualified Haitian educators conducts summertime training for our 500 teachers and 50 school directors. Teachers gather for intensive coursework and refreshing fellowship. Please consider supporting this strategic investment in the future of Haiti.
Capacity Building for Staff
More than 1,000 international ICCM workers serve children in residences, schools and holistic child development centers in our 33 countries. Our constant aim is to equip them to serve with excellence. This involves training at many levels, from local projects to national gatherings. Investing in these adults’ development around the world is one of the best things we can do for the children.
