Children of the Nations® (COTN®) is a Christian nonprofit dedicated to raising children out of poverty and hopelessness so they can become leaders who transform their nations.

We specialize in caring for the most desperate children in some of the poorest countries in Africa and the Caribbean. We emphasize caring for the whole child--physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually--not just providing temporary relief. Our programs are built to be sustainable for the long term, and are led by local, in-country staff members who understand the culture and the children.

Providing this level of care for thousands of children requires a movement of people across the globe.  Click the links below to see how you can join this movement and change the lives of children in need!
