In our ‘A Closer Look’ series, we highlight an NGO which puts high value on aid or the development of vulnerable locations. We are honored that ICS – Driver of Development is the first organization we feature in this brand new series. It’s an NGO which supports countries in need and helps create opportunities for better agriculture, access to clean drinking water, improved opportunities for youth employment and guidance for parenting. These endeavors stimulate the local economy and wellbeing of farming families; a mission we applaud.The importance of sustainable developmentICS is an innovative development organization with a pragmatic approach; an aspect we can closely relate to. While, as a travel management company, one of our integrations for promoting sustainability is CO2 compensation, ICS uses sustainable economic development and well-being of farming families in developing countries to help them move further. Their main areas of work lie in rural East Africa, where they focus primarily on locations which depend extensively on agriculture. Furthermore, ICS has plans to expand to Uganda, just bordering Kenya to the west, in 2016.
