What is ICS?

International Citizen Service (ICS) is an international volunteering programme which provide youth across the globe an opportunity to engage with social and development issues, thereby effectively contribute in local communities and develop personal skills. It is funded by UK government’s Department of International  Development and has been  presently running in almost thirty underdeveloped and developing countries like Ghana, Bangladesh, South Africa so on and so forth. In India, the ICS programme has been brought  in by PRAVAH.
PRAVAH is a NGO that works with the youth in India. It attempts at creating a new space of experiential learning  and self-exploration for youth. It does so by providing youth with an opportunity to interact and engage in development works in rural India. Pravah-ICS is the collaboration between the two to conduct the ICS programme in India.

Making ICS everyones program

•The task of leaving own self's comforts and working with a new community is a challenging task. Your support would be an immense encouragement to us.

• Your contribution in the funds for ICS will not only facilitate the implementation of the programme and the development projects but would strengthen our conviction to work for the development of the society we live in. Let us join hands in an endeavor to make this world more equitable and a just place for humanity.

•Your contribution here will not be a donation but an investment for the development of people who need it the most.

•Your investment will be realised through our efforts in this programme and you would get to see it materialising when we will get back to you after the end of the programme.
