Exciting Program Updates
An abundance of good news for you! Our Program Partners report that CCI-supported children and youth -- mostly girls and young women -- are successfully forging ahead with their studies with CCI's support, as indicated in the above photo from Guatemala. We continually receive stories about each student's educational achievements. Just as important, their ever-increasing self-confidence and self-esteem are celebrated.
Similar to Thien in Vietnam, CCI will highlight children's stories in all the other programs in future news.

Performance-Based Strategic Focus
While we are thrilled with CCI's results and successful program funding these past three years, we won't stop here. Our 2019 strategic planning led us to reach for even greater performance and sustainable impact. One of our specific goals is to educate a minimum of 25% more children during the 2019-2020 academic year. In addition, we are targeting additional funds for our Partner Programs in Guatemala and Vietnam, both poised for expansion. We favor these countries given the historical impact of U.S. policy in these countries. The four grassroots partner programs we chose are building better futures for children and youth, especially girls, by empowering them with education and skills to uplift themselves, as well as their families and communities. We'll be back to you to report on our results.
CCI's New Advisory Board
Big news! Our new Advisory Board met this summer at our mountainside New Hampshire farm. Our members include a major foundation executive and several business CEOs. Collectively, they challenged CCI to focus its strategies on expanding programs so more children grow up educated, self-sufficient and confident. Click below for details on each Board member.
How CCI Stands Out From Other Education Programs
- CCI is the only such organization where 100% of your donations go directly to child education programs. All other expenses (administration, travel, etc.) required to operate CCI are funded by our private philanthropy.
- CCI funds only successful local grassroots organizations which provide access to high quality education.
- CCI programs are so efficient that $240 supports a child's education for an entire year.
- CCI closely monitors its programs firsthand to measure and ensure the results on students and their communities.
