    “I had a great time working with the ICA Nepal tech team.  Consisting of staff & volunteers, they worked tirelessly to make sure everything ran smoothly.  From late night wiring sessions to early morning projector setups and everything in between I could not be more proud of the work that we were able to accomplish.” Lloyd Philbrook, Taiwan

About Us
>>Vision & Mission

ICA's mission is to promote social innovation through participation and community building.


Every individual has the capacity to effect change in his/her situation. In a group of people therefore, every individual should be given the chance to participate, in order to build a sustainable pattern of change or development. It is ICA's belief that a group's cultural dynamics must be considered in order to build any sustainable pattern of change or development.


ICA Nepal aims to enlarge opportunities of the disadvantaged communities enhancing individual and organisational capacity throughout the country through training, facilitation and developmental activities.


The objectives of ICA are:      


  •  promote a culture of participation at all levels of society;

  • encourage people and groups to participate in alleviating poverty and discrimination (in access to resources, social status etc.),

  • introduce the experience of other world-wide ICAs into the Nepali context, and

  • provide facilitation skills to communities and organisations.
