IPODERAC's Children Fund (ICF) is a U.S.-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization committed to the work of IPODERAC in Atlixco, Mexico. IPODERAC is a home for abandoned, homeless children ages 6-18 that ensures they get an education and training for jobs, combined with life skills to be self sufficient. A social enterprise, IPODERAC, raises approximately 50% of its operating funds from the sale of artisan goat cheese, goat’s milk soap, and carpentry items.
Visiting IPODERAC is a special experience that creates a love of the organization and the desire to support it. The next best thing to visiting is to see the documentary, Visitor's Day. This documentary by acclaimed director Nicole Opper showcases the impact of IPODERAC's exemplary work over the past 50 years with boys. Contact ICF if you would like to host a showing of this film to introduce your community to and raise funds for this invaluable program. Construction of a sister program is underway. Upon completion, up to 72 girls will find safety, support, and encouragement at IPODERAC Para las Niñas. Please join us in support of educational opportunity and economic self-sufficiency for abandoned children. To view Visitor’s Day click here. Please consider showing Visitor’s Day to your social group, church community, and any other gathering of people committed to supporting young people.
