Chances for Children International (CCI) gives marginalized children in developing countries a chance to go to school. We believe that educating children and youth is the most effective way to grow their minds and expand their life opportunities.
We enable marginalized children and youth to go to school. We focus on making education accessible for girls, because they are the least likely to attend school on a regular basis, and the least likely to graduate. Families living in poverty typically cannot afford to send their children to school. Despite education being “free,” there are administrative fees, books, and exam fees that often make education impossible. We partner with programs to remove these financial obstacles to education, especially for girls.
CCI has 501(c)3 non-profit status from the IRS, and is fully-funded by contributions made by us and donations from other individuals. We neither request nor would accept government funding and have no connections to any political organization.
