Our Covenant:

Promote and secure the emotional, spiritual and physical welfare of children who have been victimized, abandoned or persecuted; found in the streets, war zones, government run institutions, refugee camps or family homes.

Actively engage in providing immigration and refugee resettlement services to those fleeing persecution, war, oppression and poverty.

To provide an environment of peaceful and humanitarian exchange to foreign students and those who go abroad.

To offer an environment where hard working artisans can be paid a fair wage and be given the dignity of self determination through fair trade.

To provide opportunities for orphans to experience culture and sense of family with camps to America and in their country.

To widen the horizons of Americans by sending them to foreign countries to experience differing cultures through a myriad of work projects, camps and activities.

Maintain a Hague compliant licensed child placement agency under a different name in accordance with the laws of the State of California in order to provide temporal foster care and adoptive placement.

Maintain several programs to enhance ICA's mission which is not limited to but includes immigration and refugee resettlement services; foreign student exchange program; fair trade; cultural camps; mission programs and tours, and other social service programs.
