For over 50 years, Christian Children's Fund of Canada has led the fight against poverty one child, one family, and one community at a time.
We break the cycle of poverty and replace it with a cycle of self-reliance.
CCFC works side-by-side with our colleagues in developing countries, emphasizing child and community development.
We start by providing basic assistance, and eventually provide programs that lead to independent living.
Integrity is the common thread of all CCFC activities, embracing accountability and innovation.
CCFC succeeds by working with local partners, organizations that are knowledgeable about the needs of the communities we support.
Our partners help implement child-focused community development programs that respond to the local context and environment.
Our partners are innovators in the field of child-focused development communities in which we operate, and also partner with local non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
CCFC is an independent Canadian charity, governed by its own Board of Directors.
CCFC is uniquely positioned to work with agencies and communities overseas to leverage our resources and maximize our impact.
CCFC collaborates with local governments, the worldwide network ChildFund Alliance, Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC) and other relevant NGOs and foundations, like the Clinton Foundation, as well as collaborating government agencies.
CCFC is committed to the concept of partnership, both in Canada and overseas, recognizing that no one agency can effectively address the range of needs in developing countries on its own.
CCFC is officially a non-political organization and works in countries that need development assistance, regardless of their human rights record.
