The famous Nelson Mandela once said – “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”
If you believe that not a single person in the world should face poverty, join the ICC – International Co-operative Center! People who have power should initiate movements to mobilize individuals, communities, and organizations in the public and private sectors to identify innovative and community-based solutions that will inform a meaningful path out of poverty for our fellow citizens. Everyone can play a role. Raise your voice. Raise Awareness. Rally for change. By taking action in your community, you can be a part of the solution to alleviate poverty worldwide.
ICC – International Co-Operative Center Mission is to create the public and political will to end poverty by empowering individuals to exercise their personal and political power for change. We plan to engage the media and one million people to become a part of the solution through donations, volunteering, job creation, improved health conditions and academic achievement. With everyone’s help, we believe that poverty in the world will be decreased to the point that everyone in the world will have the basic conditions to live a normal life.
