Who We Are:
Adhering to the call of the Gospel and inspired by the spirit of our founder Venerable Michael Joseph McGivney, we, members of the Knights of Columbus, Councils 3376, 15533, A-801, strive to uphold the Gospel to assist needy children in developing countries.
We endeavor to help children by offering them religious and secular education, in pursuit of knowledge, realize their God-given potential., and in the spirit of charity, share the Gospel values with others.
IMC was started with an idea, that all children should have access to a quality education.
This Idea was translated into action after our founder, the Rev. John Amankwah, returned home from a trip to his native homeland of Ghana. There he found that the country's economic development had yet to translate into equal opportunities for both the country's expanding urban populations and those who continued to live in its traditional rural communities.
Father John reached out to several local councils of the Knights of Columbus, and IMC was born.
