ABOUT COCI

CHERISH OUR CHILDREN INTERNATIONAL

For the last twenty years a mighty band of committed people has worked to enhance and impact the lives of thousands of the most vulnerable children around the globe. Beginning with the commitment in 1983 to ease the plight of Romanian orphans abandoned after the fall of the brutal communist regime, to the commitment to peace and communication through blending of the Arab and Israeli cultures on the soccer fields in Israel, to the 6th Ward of Houston Texas where No More Victims Inc. is helping children avoid the path of incarceration that their parents have traveled, Cherish Our Children International is making a difference.

The mission of Cherish Our Children International is to create and fund programs and projects that provide a brighter future for the world’s most vulnerable children. We stand for a world in which each child has the opportunity to live life fully and to make their unique contribution.

Cherish Our Children believes that all children should be protected and nurtured. We believe in providing children with a solid foundation for healthy physical, intellectual and emotional development. We have witnessed the transformation in thousands of children’s lives and wish to propel the movement forward. Will you join us?
