The International Community Action Network (ICAN) is committed to creating a world in which all people share the same rights.
We believe that social justice is the most reliable foundation for strong, healthy, and tolerant communities. Since 1993, ICAN has established 11 rights-based practice community centres in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Palestine, Jordan and Israel. These ICAN centres provides basic human rights such as legal aid, education, housing, and more to over 120,000 people each year, implementing programs that engage, educate and empower the citizens most affected by conflict, economic hardship, and instability. More than 62 alumni have trained in community organizing as part of ICAN's International MSW Fellowship. These Fellows continue to work at these centres and across the Middle East to advance social justice.
