During this season of giving, we want you to remember the importance of creativity (Steve Jobs) and of empathy (Nelson Mandela). Developing children’s innate creativity and intrinsic empathy are preconditions for a better future for all.  
Our Arts Olympiad, a free-of-charge program for schools worldwide, employs the power of the arts to nurture creativity and foster empathy. We aim to engage two million children in our 5th Arts Olympiad next year.  You can make this ambitious goal real by making a  tax-deductible donation today. 
The ICAF is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit that does not receive any funding from the government.

Who will inspire the children now that their best role model is gone? Our Arts Olympiad is a tribute to Mr. Nelson Mandela who stated, “Art and sport have the powers to change the world, the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else can. Art and sport speak to people in a language they understand. Art and sport can create hope where there was once only despair. They are instruments for peace, even more powerful than governments.” Artwork by Bonciumusa Ncapai (age 12, South Africa).
