I-CARE is a
small Iowa-based non-profit dedicated to connecting
Iowans and Central Americans to foster the exchange of
ideas, cultures, and charitable resources. We are
small by design, so we can connect donors and volunteers
directly to projects they believe in and so we can foster genuine
connections with our counterparts in Central America.
We connect to
people, listen to their stories, and tell them ours.
Without fail, everyone gains something in the exchange.
New perspectives are gained, and this can be life-
changing. Often the gain is simply the gift of
givingóbeing part of something bigger than yourself or
connecting to another person by sacrificing in a small
way so their life can be better in a big way. Sometimes
the gain is improved quality of life, through access to
adequate health care, education, a loan to start a
business, or the dignity of being employed.
Occasionally, all that is gained is hope; but
occasionally hope is the greatest possible gain.
