About ICS SP

Strengthening Families, Protecting children

We are an African child and family development non profit organization. For over 25 years and in collaboration with children, families, communities, governments and the private sector, we have raised awareness, provided insights, developed, implemented and scaled up evidence based solutions that tackle root causes of violence, poverty, and inequality. We believe that all children deserve to reach their full potential. 


A world in which every child grows up in a safe and nurturing environment to develop to their full potential


To facilitate and empower parents, caregivers, and other stakeholders in Africa to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children
Our Core Values


We build transparency in all our activities and hold ourselves to the highest standards of accountability.


We work with communities to co-design and implement responsive programmes, projects and services that meet the key needs of children.


We partner with others to discover and scale up new ways to deliver solutions that protect children sustainably.

Continuous Learning

We value learning and feedback and we create platforms for knowledge exchange with other stakeholders.


We are on a continuous journey with children, families, expert organizations and governments to collectively discover comprehensive solutions that enhance child protection.
