A Child’s Promise International (CPI) is a 50l (c) 3 IRS Tax Exempt Nonprofit AVO (All-Volunteer Organization). Our mission supports vulnerable and destitute youth in marginal living conditions and challenging environments, primarily in undeveloped countries, helping youth embrace their futures with greater achievement for personal and financial success. Our vision is to see each youth educated and supported become healthy, self-reliant adults who are productive citizens in a global society.

Ninety-eight percent (98%) of donations is contributed to programs and services, with only two-percent (2%) to management and fundraising.

The ObstaComer Scholarship Program for Zambian Orphans
Our ObstaComer Scholarship and Mentorship Programs commemorate the late parents (Mathew & Jean Mulenga) of our Chief Operating Officer, Elizabeth Mulenga, who is a native of Zambia. The scholarship program supports orphans, and other Zambian youth living in marginalized and challenging environments.
Mentorship Programs for Zambian Orphans
The ObstaComer Mentorship Program is a series of mentoring of short videos to provide orphans and other vulnerable Zambian youth guidance for developing sustainable life skills and
knowledge. "An “obstacomer” is a person who has overcome many obstacles in life to reach desired goals. The term "obstacomer was created by Elizabeth Mulenga in 2016 by combining the words obstacle and overcomer.
The Charity Amoa Memorial School in Takoradi, Ghana
CPI works with the Charity Amoa Memorial School (CAMS) in Ghana to educate community youth. Together we build community school complexes, provide daycare, kindergarten, compulsory grades 1 thru 9, as well as a library and employment training center.
Over 100 students at CAMS are in need of sponsorship, and several orphans in Zambia need donations. You have options for donating a single or monthly contribution via PayPal, credit cards, or mail-in check. Alternatively, you can bequest a planned charitable gift which is above all a gesture that comes from the heart. There are various types of planned giving and it is important to be informed about tax regulations that may apply. Our legal/financial advisor can provide information and help with planned gifts. Each donation supports the education of our students or orphans and helps ensure their continued education.
A SOLID EDUCATION IS THE FOUNDATION EVERY CHILD DESERVES
