Founded in 2015, the ICG Foundation tackles child poverty, through employability.
The foundation empowers those born into child poverty by focussing on constructive causes including care, education, career readiness and, mentoring programmes in order to change the lives of individuals and families in the long term.
The ICG Foundation works closely with the Udayan Care Home in New Delhi, India, not only to deliver financial support, but also delivering volunteers through our own people and network.
The ICG Foundation believes in supporting youth by imparting technological and vocational training that enables them to find jobs or set up their own businesses. Attention is also paid to development of essential skills for all-round employability such as Spoken English, Business Communication, Email Writing, and Telephone Etiquette. For the price of a cup of coffee every morning, the Foundation can support deserving and talented girls from weaker sections of society through the Udayan Shalini Fellowship. The Fellowship provides mentoring and monetary support so the girls can continue their secondary and tertiary education until they finish their course after five to six years.
To date, the foundation has raised over £85,000 and has helped thousands of the most vulnerable young girls escape child poverty, through employability and empowerment.
