Our Project Has Many Goals

Ensuring a Better Life For The Children


It has been said that a committed and energetic volunteer base is key to a successful organization. Our Volunteer Program provides both groups and individuals the opportunity to become involved in the mission and services of the CCDI.


Many children in need around the world do not get a quality education where they can learn and develop. To advance learning, Save the Children supports education programs for children in the classroom and at home. We train teachers to engage their students through more effective teaching practices.


Children need your help today! With your donation you can save lives and deliver life-changing support to children that need it the most.
