ICS is funded by the UK Government's Department for International Development which leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty.

DFID has chosen to fund ICS because it believes in the power of young people to bring about positive change in some of the poorest communities around the world, and that by creating thousands of active citizens we can shape the future for the better.
