ICA Forum

Mission: To engage the ICA community through continuous shared learning

The ICA Forum engages the ICA community of Indian and US (ICA-supported) NGOs, as well as its partners and members, in the exchange of ideas and best practices.


Our goal is to connect the ICA community to inspire, learn and motivate. Learn from subject matter experts, NGO Leaders, and partners about their NGOs and projects. Share best practices to overcome barriers, manage significant issues, and discuss lessons learned.

These two individuals from different generations and different decades shared a vision: to live and work with the vulnerable segments of India’s population to bring relief to them. Hear their stories, motivations, and unique experiences to learn how they transformed challenges into opportunities and inspired others to do more.
