WHO WE ARE
The InnerCity Mission for Children is a full-fledged faith-based Non-Governmental Organisation[NGO] in Consultative Status with the United Nations [UN]; it is under the auspices of the Chris Oyakhilome Foundation and it reaches out to indigent children living in forgotten places – the inner cities.
We are dedicated to breaking the Cycle of Poverty by delivering a sustainable solution to the problem of urban and rural child poverty. We work to give the life of every indigent child a meaning; we want them to forget that they were ever poor and give them a hope and a future.
We envision a world in which orphaned, deprived, excluded and vulnerable children in the inner cities live free of poverty and fulfill their God-given potential, thus becoming responsible and self-reliant adults, profitable to the society.
