ICDI Annual Report, 2007
International Child Development Initiatives (NJ1)
The International Child Development Initiatives (ICDI) promotes the wellbeing of children growing up in difficult circumstances. ICDI works to improve policies and practices affecting these children by doing research and training. ICDI believes in the power of children and young people, supporting their rights and addressing the underlying causes for the problems they face. 2007 was a significant year for ICDI. Despite its relatively small size the organization has--once again--been remarkably active. ICDI was engaged in 11 large and many much smaller projects in Central and Eastern Europe, Surinam, and the Middle East, all of which focused on the needs of children who have to grow up in very deprived situations. ICDI also began to employ more staff (up from 5 to 8) as it grew organizationally. The appointment of a new director in September 2007 saw central management change hands for the first time. With new staff came new expertise (children in conflict zones, children and HIV/Aids, children with disability) augmenting existing strengths and creating new regional interests and expertise, especially in Africa.
