International Children's Network (ICN) has a unique way of doing outreach, both locally and internationally. ICN follows the example of the open-source model - a philosophy giving individuals direct access to the inner workings of our sponsorship process. From gathering an orphaned or at-risk child's information to handle ICN finances, we exist because of the hard work of our volunteers (including our Board of Directors) and the many dedicated people who handle the massive amount of data entry required to maintain ICN's sponsorship database.
International Children's Network : Outreach
Sponsorship provides real, lasting support for a child starving for a hand up. In line with ICN's "open-source" structure, we invite and encourage sponsors to not only exchange letters with and purchase gifts for the children they support, but to travel with us and meet their child face to face. Meeting the child you have loved from so far away and for so long brings to life the letters and photos you have received over years of support.
If you believe you have something to offer, please contact us and let us know.
Throughout the year ICN sends our directors and volunteers to the various countries in which we operate to check in on our programs and ensure things are running smoothly. We try to take advantage of these visits as often as possible because we are able to accomplish so much for our children and field workers when we take a large team to visit them. Many times our traveling volunteers have experience in the medical or engineering fields, which allows us to set up a medical clinic or drill wells to provide clean drinking water.
