ICC is a noncommercial organization founded with support from the Eurasia Foundation in 1995. The Center is active in promoting a market economy, democracy and culture in Turkmenistan. It finds funding sources for NGO projects, and provides information to grant makers about local organizations. The center's ongoing projects include:
- Compiling a database on various organisations in Turkmenistan, including NGOs and grantmaking organisations that work in CIS countries;
- The creation and maintenance of an NGO Web site for and about local NGOs in Turkmenistan. This project includes educating organizations about the resources and possibilities available through the Internet and providing free access to e-mail for local and foreign organizations and private entities who work or reside in Turkmenistan. This network is available on a national level with node stations in such regional centres as Chardjev, Nebit-Dag, and Mary;
- A training program about modern network computer technologies for administrators and webmasters of local NGOs.
In two years of operation, 12 Turkmen organizations have received funding for their projects through the activities of the ICC.
