Who we are
In 1991 a small group of Colombian women who were concerned by the dire situation of displaced children in Colombia decided to do something about it and founded The Canadian Colombian Children’s Organization (CCCO).
They organized events and raised funds that were sent to various charities in Colombia. Over the years these fund-raising activities grew and in 2005 the CCCO received charitable status.
The CCCO celebrates more than 30 years of giving. To date we sponsor four schools of children in need by giving them the tools to succeed – education and values – and avoid the common pitfalls of violence and poverty. Some of these children have already graduated from high school and made it through college or university, opportunities that would have not been reached without our help and our supporters’ – volunteers, corporate sponsors and generous donors.
