In 2015, Co-founder of iCreate Inc. International, Nicoya Ingram returned to her hometown Freeport, Grand Bahama to attend her grandmother’s funeral. She met Bishop Marvin Weech, the pastor of Bible Teachers International (BTI) whose ministry had been actively serving the needs of people in the community. From there, a relationship with Bishop Weech and BTI was formed to support the great work his ministry was doing on the island.
One year later, the island suffered in the aftermath of the Category 4 Hurricane Matthew. iCreate was immediately willing to support the people devastated by the storm. Through “It Takes a Village Project”, iCreate began hurricane relief efforts to collect and deliver personal hygiene items, clothing, and non-perishable food items to Freeport. Through the support of organizations around Atlanta, this non-profit was able to assist Bible Teachers International in serving over 200 families with items donated by our partners.
In 2018 iCreate returned to Freeport to host workshops providing leadership and life skills training to students. On this trip, the company connected with the Reach Out Youth Organization and the International Creative Arts Network, two organizations that serve hundreds of youth on Grand Bahama Island.
On September 3 through September 5, 2019, the Bahamian islands of Grand Bahama and the Abacos were ravaged by Hurricane Dorian, one of the strongest most long-lived storms on record. The storm caused devastation to thousands with many losing everything. In October 2019 iCreate began packaging much-needed supplies, food, and hygiene items to deliver to partners in Grand Bahama. In an effort to assist with the needs and restoration, iCreate will conduct multiple visits with the goal to facilitate more physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aid.
