Holidays 2020

Dear CCI Friends and Supporters,

We all want positive news these days. For many of us, the 2020 holidays seem less exciting to look forward to because we aren't traveling and gathering in groups. So, we'll find other ways to celebrate!

Now for the positive news...

We are very excited to share stories about select children and youth around the world who are flourishing during this time despite Covid-19, poverty and lack of opportunities. These children are breaking through the barriers of lack of access and restrictions to eduction... because of CCI's donors and supporters like YOU!

... and the positive results!

  • Over 470 children and youth attended school in 2020 in CCI-supported programs!
  • 107 attended university -- most of them the first in their families!
  • 26 graduated from university -- and all received excellent jobs!
  • One of our partners launched an innovative Work Skills Lab.
  • We launched our expanded CCI website to great praise. Click here to see it!
  • We launched CCI's YouTube Channel with videos of interviews with our program partners' students and staff. Watch them here!
  • We created an easy Donor button on Facebook.
  • And always, 100% of CCI donations go directly to our student programs!
But we're not stopping here!

Education is the doorway to the future for children -- for knowledge, career opportunities and financial stability -- for themselves, their families and communities. CCI makes education possible, from grade school through university, for overlooked children in low-resourced communities on different continents. The results are immediate and long-term. The proof is in the students and their upgraded lives, where they can live their dreams and help care for their families and communities. We are among the few non-profit organizations that can clearly say this.

CCI has exciting plans to make 2021 the year of "Childhood Education No Matter What." This includes:
  • Expanding enrollment of children and youth in CCI Partner Programs in Guatemala and Vietnam.
  • Enabling even more young women to attend university.
  • Growing the Work Skills Lab to enable more deaf children to prepare for their future.
 Deaf children in Vietnam learn skills that strengthen future employability in Hearing & Beyond's new Work Skills Lab.

“Donating to and participating in CCI is a significantly more fulfilling experience than other charities. In fact, CCI is my favorite charity over my many years of giving. I see results that happened with my support, and learn firsthand about the children whose lives have been changed in these programs. Knowing the students and their stories makes my giving more meaningful.“ -- long-term donor Susan Rosenthal
