One woman’s determination to make a difference led to the creation of Cherish Our Children International, fondly known as COCI!
COCI’s programs have helped heal, educate and advocate for children in Bosnia, Romania, Serbia, Kenya, Mexico and here in Houston. Since 2007, COCI has partnered with two other non-profits to sustain 25 “Little Blue Schools” in Mexico. COCI-established a preschool in Africa to help underprivileged children pass school entrance exams, without which they would not be allowed into public schools. Hundreds of disabled children in Bosnia and Serbia have been freed from “house arrest” thanks to COCI-provided workshops, access to speech and hearing therapy, and dental services. No More Victims is breaking the cycle of incarceration and addiction among disadvantaged young people in Houston.
