The International Child Program is a New York City based non-profit organization that utilizes the arts to raise funds to help educate and support children.
TRAVEL the world
The International Child Program (ICP) creates artistic platforms to inspire an exchange of thoughts of youth from around the globe. ICP focuses on children from low-income households who have a love of learning and an interest in travel.
In the 1940's, jazz diva Billie Holiday sang "God bless the child that's got his own." The International Child Program was created so that the child "without his own" could be exposed to what was once considered a luxury.
Electra Weston, founder of The International Child Program and Spelman college alumni says, "After college, travel was the best education that life could prepare for me. My goal is to help today's youth have the same opportunities."
ICP's mission is to break down racial barriers. Children do not discriminate; society teaches them negative stereotypes; to hate; to segregate. ICP teaches them to return to the mind of a child and learn about other human beings before judging them.
We are doing our best to make a difference in the world. You can help.
