International Care Ministries (ICM) has been serving the poor in the Philippines since 1992.
At ICM, we believe no one should live in abject poverty. With the right support, the right training and the right resources, the bondages of poverty can be broken. Leveraging on two decades of learning, ICM has concluded that HOPE IS KEY when it comes to progress out of poverty. Our cost-efficient, interactive four-month learning experience - called "Transform" - is challenging the strongholds keeping people in poverty and cultivating opportunities for hope to grow. Since 2009, Transform has impacted over 750,000 individuals from thousands of communities across central and southern Philippines. With the confidence of 50 million survey data points, ICM's ultrapoor participants are evidencing the power of hope through tangible life-change. After participating in our transforming values, health, and livelihood training program, our families experience a 106% increase in household income, 28% decrease in serious illness, and 43% increase in self-worth.
