Mission Statement

The corporation’s mission: We are a group of Cantonese speakers who are determined to safeguard the deserved importance of Traditional Chinese and Cantonese as the world’s unique heritage languages. Traditional Chinese can date back the original form of its written characters to the Ancient and Middle Age and is still commonly used nowadays throughout Southeast Asia and many Chinese communities worldwide as their written language. Cantonese is an official spoken language used in the Southern China Region since the Middle Age period and has been widely used in Hong Kong, Canton Province, as well as the Chinese community in Malaysia, Vietnam, Britain, Canada, Australia and the USA. Throughout the world, there are still over millions of non-Chinese or non-Cantonese in all nationalities learning or having the interest to learn Traditional Chinese and Cantonese through HK songs, movies, operas and literatures. We would like to connect all those concerned organizations to preserve, inherit and pass on these two treasures of cultural heritage. Recently, the world clearly witnesses a further setback to heritage language preservation that Traditional Chinese and Cantonese have been suppressed since Mandarin and Simplified characters have become Mainland China’s official language. As more and more Chinese and Cantonese people are forced to leave their hometown to non-Chinese nations, there is a surge in the calling for preserving and promoting Traditional Chinese and Cantonese in their new communities and throughout the world. In view of a language genocide for so long, there is a strong need of an NPO in the USA to unite all those organizations and individuals in the learning, teaching, and promoting of Traditional Chinese and Cantonese. We therefore find it urgent and legitimate to uphold Traditional Chinese and Cantonese through the setting up of a non-profit organization, based in the USA. The corporation’s purposes: to promote Traditional Chinese and Cantonese worldwide to gather all resources and connect all parties concerned to educate Cantonese learners in their own languages to train the teachers who can use their native languages to teach their own people Traditional Chinese and Cantonese to set up international educational institutes and organizations worldwide with the head office based in the USA

We are a U.S. registered non-profit Organization with 501c3 tax exempt status . We safeguard the importance of Traditional Chinese and Cantonese as the World’s unique heritage languages by connecting all those concerned organizations to preserve, inherit and pass on these two treasures of cultural heritage with the setting up of a non-profit organization, based in the USA. In order to achieve our purposes of promoting, connecting and training, we have recruited volunteers all over the world.

Another series of free online education for students and tutors of all languages speakers has also been launched and will be continued in the long run. Teaching materials and videos are uploaded frequently to provide good learning information for the public without the need to pay a penny. We are also planning to establish our Institute in a House with a big interior and exterior area so that we can hold cultural exchange and language training programs with accommodation in a physical site. Our final mission is to set up as many ICAC NPOs as possible all over the world by connecting all supporters from all nations. To cut down the cost for the NPO, so far we haven't paid any penny or benefit to our CEO or any volunteer. But we still need funds for daily operation of the Office of the Institute. In view of our far-reaching and numerous tasks, please support us.
