A Child’s Promise International (CPI) works with community residents of targeted third world countries to support the education and well-being of youth in marginal living conditions and challenging environments. We establish working relationships with residents of selected communities based on our capacity to make positive impacts and significant differences in the lives of vulnerable youth.
Since 2004, we have supported orphanages and youth in South America, Thailand, and other African countries. Our mission is focused on youth populations most vulnerable and challenged. As a small All-Volunteer Organization (AVO), our resources are limited and can only be expanded where we are capable to provide services that will improve quality of life and educational opportunities.
Since 2009, CPI has been working with the community of Takoradi, Ghana, in West Africa to educate youth within the community, and assists in planning future career paths for students after graduation. Our results are evaluated and measurable for sustainability and success-oriented achievements that impact life-long opportunities and choices. Information on our student graduation numbers, success through higher grade levels, admission to higher learning institutions, and/or employment after graduation is available upon request.
In 2020 CPI partnered with New Beginnings Children's Village (NBCV), a children's home that supports orphans and vulnerable youth. Established in 2008 and operated by a Pastor (Pastor Goma) and his wife, the orphanage also provides temporary shelter to displaced youth. All youth at NBCV attend school. CPI supports the education of youth in residence at NBCV by providing scholarships and a mentorship program to promote personal and career development.
CPI is participating in the Beds for a Cause fundraiser project organized by the Rotary Club of Cheshire, CT. The project’s process is simple—new hosts on Airbnb, HomeAway or on another vacation rental website can allocate a chosen part of the rental earnings to CPI. The project will contribute CPI’s financial well-being and mission when CPI is chosen as supporting charity. More information about how to sign up to be a host is available on the Rotary Club of Cheshire’s website: www.cheshirerotary.org.
