The Indian Centre for Integrated Development (ICID) has been established to empower the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community to lead a dignified life. ICID is an Initiative of the Indian Dominican Friars.
The core area of work of the ICID is the advocacy and protection of children’s rights. ICID strives to nurture healthy development of children and young people who do not have adequate care and protection. Our organization aims to build the skills and resilience of the children in challenging situations by supporting them to access equitable education, health care and other support services that promote their basic Rights in relation to child survival, protection, development and participation. Our organization especially works with children with complex needs who are in the greatest need of such support. These include children who live on the street, are engaged in rag picking and are employed in other menial jobs. The ICID staff and volunteers are passionate about supporting the unique needs and wellbeing of children and young people.
Our Vision: A just and free society where child rights are recognized and protected, leading to integral and responsible human development.
