Families, healthy lives and sustainable future

Every year, the world celebrates The International Day of Families on 15th of May. In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the day and emphasizes how the international community values families. Importantly, the International Day of Families creates awareness of issues, which affect families and to increase knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting them.

The theme for this year’s International Day of Families is Families, healthy lives and sustainable future. At ICS-SP, we join the rest of the world in commemoration of this day, which resonates with our vision of having a world in which every child grows up in a safe and nurturing family environment. To sustainably address the socio-economic needs of families, Skilful Parenting interventions are combined with a well target economic intervention that addresses household income and food security. We believe that empowering families through Skilful Parenting is safeguarding future generations.
