About This Project
For the poorest children in the Philippines, primary education is an asset often out of reach. In 2007, one million Filipino children aged six to 11 were not attending school (UNESCO, 2010). Deprived of education, a child's chances of escaping poverty are dramatically reduced.
Every year of education decreases the likelihood of a child living in poverty. In response to this troubling reality, ICM provides Elementary Scholarships for ICM Jumpstart Kindergarten graduates who continue on to public school first grade. They stay on scholarship until they graduate from primary school.
Invest in education, help lift these kids out of poverty now!

International Care Ministries Ltd
International Care Ministries has been reaching the poorest of the poor in the Philippines since 1992. At ICM, we believe that no one should live in abject poverty. With the right training, resources and support, the strongholds of poverty can be broken.
In the last few years, ICM has reached approximately 100,000 ultra-poor people a year with life-changing, community based, holistic education. ICM program creates measurable improvement in families and whole regions across the Visayas and Mindanao. This wide impact is possible due to ICM's unique approach of partnering with the existing infrastructure of local churches found in most Philippine slum communities.
After ICM's four-month VHL (Values, Health, Livelihood) training program, participants experience:
- 85% reduction in reported physical abuse in homes
- 22% reduction in serious illnesses
- 61% increase in household income
ICM provides help, inspires hope and creates change.
