Our aims are simple and straight from the heart
- Feed African orphans and the needy around the world
- Create a safe, loving and nurturing environment for children.
- Give them a healthy diet and a good education
We are an artistic arts organization that has been working to fight hunger, prevent malnutrition and improve the lives of boys and girls in Africa since 1996. Whether we are working with orphaned children in sub-Saharan Africa CYI strives to meet the needs of vulnerable children and their families with lifesaving and life-changing programs. Charities can make a difference, with a hand-up, not a handout.
