GIVING LIFE AND A PROMISING FUTURE TO THE FORGOTTEN PEOPLE OF CÔTE D'IVOIRE
Because water-born illness is the leading cause of death in Africa, we have given out hundreds of filters so that people can begin leading a healthy life.
Each year, we arrive in
Côte d'Ivoire to care for the communities where there is no health care. We hold a full-scale hospital complete with surgeries, clinics, a pharmacy, and post-op care.
Our Tanda Bilingual Academy
was developed to ensure a comprehensive education to children who otherwise would not receive it. The K-12 campus in Tanda, Côte d' Ivoire is almost complete!
“The same blood that flows through their veins, flows through mine.
They are people that deserve dignity, and that deserve help.”
1040i's Founder & President
Mike has dedicated the last fifty years to empowering the people of Côte d'Ivoire! 1040i has hosted over twenty Impact trips since 2010, with twenty-five Ivorians serving as administrative and auxiliary staff in Côte d'Ivoire. We have ensured an ethical and self-sustaining entity so that one day the Ivorians can thrive without any assistance.
1040i is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization based in Norman, Oklahoma.
