As a child-centered organization, we at the InnerCity Mission take on the responsibility for children in our support network and around the world. As an arm of the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International (COFI), we strive to make their lives easier so they can be functional adults contributing to their communities and bringing joy to their parents always.
Our vision has always been a world, free of poverty, where every child has equal opportunities to thrive and fulfill their potential. The core of our work around the world is believing in the future of indigent children and taking action to reach and meet their needs.
Through our education, feeding initiative, healthcare, advocacy, shelters, and humanitarian aid programs, we strive to ensure indigent children and poor families succeed in life by providing them with solutions to conditions caused by poverty.
Our founding father, Chris Oyakhilome made a statement that stands at the core of our values:
“Remember, every child is your child! Help children, don’t ignore children. They are our extension; they are our future. No matter how dirty or untouchable they are, think again. You were just that small one day, but you were fortunate to have someone help you. Many of these are fortunate to have us if we would only open our hearts, our minds, and our eyes and ignore them no more. We need to help give them a home, we need to help educate them, we need to help clothe them. As small as they are, as needy as they are, as frustrated as they are, they have dreams. We can help make those dreams come true!”

Other core issues: poverty, hunger, education
With the rising cost of food prices and high inflation rates globally, too many low-income households face increased food insecurity with many children suffering the adverse effects of hunger and malnutrition.
It is hardest for those living below the poverty line to even imagine sending their kids to school because in many countries, obtaining an education is not free. As we prepare for the new school session in September, our ongoing ‘S.P.A.C.E’ Campaign gives you the opportunity to sponsor a child’s education for a full session with $100 or its equivalent in your local currency.

Once again we are grateful to our network of partners and volunteers around the world for your unwavering support and for standing with us in the fight against poverty. We appreciate all that you supply to make the work at the InnerCity Mission easy as we reach the poor numbered in the 7 billion mandate.
