What ICEFA Does

Transformational Development
Children are the hope for the world's future, yet they are its most vulnerable victims of conflict, disaster and poverty. Changing a child's life for the better is at the heart of the process of transformational development. This process first helps people and their communities recognize the resources that lie within themselves to make change possible. As a result, health care, education, micro-enterprise development, advocacy and other programmes are carried out by the community with the support of ICEFA.

Emergency Relief
People whose lives are endangered by disasters or conflict need immediate, skilled assistance. ICEFA is committed to respond to any major emergency around India, through our own programs or in co-operation with partner agencies. For example, ICEFA has responded to famine in earthquakes and tsumani effects in India.

ICEFA's focus on development is steadfast, even in emergency response situations.
The Following are the measures taken in-case of Emergency:

  • Encourages maximum participation from those being assisted.
  • Operates with sensitivity to the local culture and relationships.
  • Works whenever possible through national partners.
  • Gives immediate attention to economic recovery.
  • Encourages peace building through reconciliation and enhancement of civil society.
  • Provides local preparedness training in disaster-prone areas.

Promotion of Justice
It is not enough to work with people to address the symptoms of their poverty. ICEFA also addresses the complex, systematic factors that perpetuate poverty. ICEFA supports community awareness of the collective ability to address unjust practices and begin working for change. ICEFA speaks out on issues such as child labor, debt relief for poor nations, and the use of children as combatants in armed conflict.
ICEFA has endorsed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as fundamental expressions of the freedoms and responsibilities that should exist in every country. Whenever possible, ICEFA seeks opportunities to help reduce the level of conflict and to contribute to peaceful resolution and reconciliation.

Strategic initiatives
As a Non Governmental Organization (NGO), ICEFA shares a special relationship with local NGOs of same traditions. ICEFA, in partnership with the other NGOs, works toward reducing poverty and advocating for justice through our development, relief and advocacy efforts.
ICEFA invites NGO leaders to participate in conferences, consultations, training programmes and various educational opportunities. These diverse activities, which are typically the outcome of local initiatives, involve both clergy and lay people. ICEFA welcomes opportunities to contribute to the life and work of the NGOs in general.

Public Awareness
ICEFA encourages people to care about the needs of others, to understand the causes of poverty, and to offer a compassionate response. These efforts include collaboration with media and community participation in fundraising. In all its communications, ICEFA upholds the dignity of suffering children and families in presenting explanations of the causes and consequences of poverty, war, neglect, and abuse. Its ministry seeks to touch the hearts and minds of both the poor and those with means.
