Children of the Nations International
Children of the Nations® (COTN®) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing holistci-Christ centered care to orphaned and destitute children, working in Sierra Leone, Malawi, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti.
By partnering with local people, they establish Children’s Homes (for orphans) and Village Partnership Programs (to benefit orphans and children living with destitute families or caregivers who cannot properly provide for them). The programs and services they provide include education, nutrition, medical care, and community development initiatives such as agriculture, clean water projects, skills training, and more.
COTN believes true, lasting, and meaningful change to a nation begins with children, so they are their mission. COTN stands apart from other organizations in their goal not to provide relief, but rather to empower nationals to a life of self-sustainability.
